One main reason why you might want to get this smartphone is its processor. Not very often do we see budget smartphones like the Infinix Hot 12i feature a premium processor like the Mediatek helio G85. You only find this processor on mid-range and premium smartphones. The processor comes with two fast ARM Cortex-A75 cores (with up to 2 GHz) and six small ARM Cortex-A55 (with up to 1.8 GHz). This simply means this device will efficiently handle tasks thrown at it – and that includes graphic and CPU demanding mobile games.
The design of the Infinix Hot 12i is similar to its predecessor, the Infinix Hot 11. It comes in a plastic body (typical of budget smartphones) and features a triple rear camera setup which includes a 13-megapixel main sensor, 2-megapixel sensor, and a QVGA AI sensor. You also get an 8-megapixel water drop selfie camera. You also get 3G of RAM (expandable UP to 6GB) and 64GB of internal storage. Furthermore, this device is powered by a 5000mAh battery, with no support for fast charging.
This smartphone comes in two variants (2GB/68GB and 3GB/68GB). The 2GB/68GB variant is available for a recommended retail price of 61,800 Naira ($149), while the 3GB/68GB will be selling for 67,000 Naira ($161). Infinix says the Hot 12i is available in partner stores (Jumia, Pointek, Konga, etc.) across the nation.
