Update 2: Read my full review here: https://tech-ish.com/2019/03/31/infinix-hot-7-review/
Update 1: Phones now available. 1GB RAM starts at KES 9,999 while 2GB RAM starts at KES 10,999. Hot 7 Pro with 3GB RAM and 4G support will come later.
Infinix have silently opened up pre-orders for the Hot 7. One has dual rear cameras, and more RAM and Storage, while the other has a single camera, and is part of the Android GO program. So the more powerful one is in this post listed as PRO.
The pre-order pages are live on infinixmall.ke though full specs of the devices haven’t been revealed. This post will be updated to include full specs once they go live.
The new devices come a couple of days after Infinix opened up pre-orders for the Infinix Zero 6 Pro.
What are your thoughts on the new devices?
