Infinix Hot 6 Pro Features Overview
Taking the Infinix Hot 6 Pro out of the box, the first thing you are bound to notice is the beautiful 6-inch IPS touchscreen panel that it makes use of. We are looking at more than 76% of screen to body ratio on a device that offers 282 pixels per inches as is calculated from its 720 x 1440-pixel resolution.
If that tells us anything else, it’s that we have an 18:9 aspect ratio to deal with here.
Still on the front panel, the Hot 6 Pro promises not just any selfie camera, but a decent 5MP camera that is equipped with the ability to take videos at 1080p resolutions. If that is not enough for you, you have a 13MP main sensor on the back. That is coupled with a secondary 2MP camera which will ensure better depth in the images you take. These dual cameras are then given a LED flash to better their work in low light situations.
That takes us to the back of the unit where we have a fingerprint sensor to keep the double cameras company. Since the Hot 6 Pro is the top of the line model for the Hot series this year, we were a little bit disappointed that the front camera does not double as a facial recognition sensor.
Anyways, that does not matter anymore after diving under the hood and seeing the beautiful architecture in there. Seeing that the Android 8.1 Oreo is at the heart of affairs, we were even more impressed with learning about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset and the Adreno 308 GPU. 3GB of RAM will be married to 32GB of internal storage on the Infinix Hot 6 Pro.
Should that not be enough for the user, a dedicated microSD card slot could be used to bump the memory up to as much as 128GB.
At the end of it all, a more than decent 4000 mAh battery is used to keep the lights on. Infinix Hot 6 Pro is available in color options of Sandstone Black, Magic Gold. Bordeaux Red and City Blue, the unit is supposed to start hitting the shelves from the month of June
