Infinix officially introduced the Hot 6 Pro to the Kenyan market on Saturday, and this phone is the amalgamation of all the latest trends in the smartphone market for the budget market.
The Hot 6 Pro was unveiled outside the Kenya National Archives on Saturday where Infinix had a promotion where the first 100 people to buy the phone would get tickets to IMAX. This phone is a interesting combination of a 18:9 display, a Snapdragon processor and dual cameras at a price point that is within reach of the targeted Kenyan audience.
Starting off with the design, the Infinix Hot 6 Pro has large 6 inch screen with the now-in-trend 18:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1440 x 720. There is a dual camera system at the back with 13MP and 2MP sensors with phase detection auto focus and can shoot photos in portrait mode. The front facing camera has an LED flash that aids in shooting during low light conditions. There is also face unlock, which is a cool alternative to the fingerprint reader at the back.
The Infinix Hot 6 Pro comes in two versions: A 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM version that I have currently and a cheaper 2GB RAM and 16 ROM variant. However, if you want more storage, you can expand the storage by adding a microSD card.
The Hot 6 Pro features one tray that shows its dual SIM slots where only one SIM port can support 4G. The third port on the tray is for adding the microSD card.
To top it all off, the Hot 6 Pro comes with a impressive 4000mAh battery, which can prove to be a great performer thanks to the resolution of the screen and the frugal Snapdragon processor.
This phone is a great option for that particular person who would want to jump into the 18:9 aspect ratio and portrait mode trend while not blowing up their bank account. Infinix in conjunction with the online ecommerce company, Kilimall, are initially selling the 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM variant for Kshs 15,699 and Kshs 13,699 for the 2GB RAM/ 16GB ROM version.
