Design

The new smartphone from Infinix, the Infinix Hot 7 features a simple but unique design. It is made of plastic body and aluminum frames which ends up giving us a well-rounded smartphone.

Also on the front side of the newly arrived smartphone, you will find a huge 6.2 inches display IPS type screen, which comes in with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, 24 bit.

Instead of the triple primary camera which seems to be the trend in the smartphone world, the Infinix Hot 7 features just a single primary camera at the back. The camera is vertically arranged alongside a LED flash. The smartphone comes with a rear-mounted responsive fingerprint sensor which is centrally placed close to the top.

The other component of the smartphone like the 3.5mm jack, the charging port, the volume rocker, power button, and others all maintain their ancestral position. The Infinix Hot 7 comes in three colors options which are the purple, Black, and finally Gold.

There was no record of any water resistance which means the smartphone cannot survive in either dust or water.

Camera
