The Infinix Hot 10 Play comes in as a more affordable alternative to the standard and earlier released Infinix Hot 10 just like the Hot 9 Play was for the Hot 9. How Infinix achieved this cheaper price tag is far from being a mystery. Consumers who decide to purchase the Hot 10 Play will have to settle for some less premium features, which include the processor, camera, and lots more. However, they will be served with a bigger battery.
Design and Display
The Infinix Hot 10 plays design takes after its more premium sibling. It was sort of built on the design architecture of the standard Hot 10, as you can find resembling design pieces. However, there are some tweaks that set both smartphones apart.
On the rear, we have a square camera bearing dual cameras, an LED flash. Also on the rear is a capacitive fingerprint sensor and the Infinix branding, which indicates its an Infinix smartphone.
All these rear placements are placed on a plastic covering with a gradient design. Enthusiats who desire to go for this device will have four colour options and they include Aegean Blue, Morandi Green, Obsidian Black, Purple.
Moving up front, we discover a 6.82-inch IPS LCD display which is slightly bigger than the 6.72-inch display on its more premium sibling. There is also a shift from a punch hole on the display to a drop notch housing the front camera. This display has a resolution of 720 x 1640 and a density of 263 PPI.
The cameras on the Inifinix Hot 10 Play are basically a step down from what is offered by the standard Hot 10. This didnt come as a surprise, considering the fact that its a more affordable device.
On the rear camera department, we have a single 13MP camera with an aperture of f/1.8 and also an AI Lens, which should help make the camera smarter. This camera is capable of shooting videos up to 1080p @ 30fps.
Upfront, we have a single 8MP camera, which is supported by an LED flash. This camera is also capable of shooting videos up to 1080p @ 30fps.
Hardware and Software
On the performance hardware department, we have got a drop from the MediaTek Helio G70 processor on its more premium sibling, to the Helio G25 processor here. This drop a processing power shows the Infinix Hot 10 Plays isnt as capable as its more premium sibling.
The other members of the performance train include a Mali-G52 MC2, 2GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB internal storage, with SD-Card support up to 512GB, and a massive non-removable 6000mAh battery, which is bigger than the 5200 mAh battery on its more premium sibling.
On the software side, the Infinix Hot 10 Play runs the XOS 7 user interface on top of the Android 10 Go edition operating system.
The Infinix Hot 10 Play features a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Micro-USB port, wifi, Bluetooth.
Internet connectivity on the Infinix Hot 10 Play is capped at 4G LTE. which means downloads and streaming will be capped at 4G speeds.
