Infinix HOT 9 PRO now available in Kenya

Infinix’s approach with the HOT 9 series has been very confusing to say the least. But here’s a quick breakdown for everyone who feels as confused as I am. There’s three phones so far:

  • HOT 9 Play – which is an Android GO phone with a huge 6.8-inch display, 2GB RAM, 6000mAh battery
  • HOT 9 – Which is the normal quad-camera phone with a smaller 6.6-inch display, 5000mAh battery, and 2GB RAM
  • Hot 9 PRO – Which is like the HOT 9 but comes with extra RAM and extra storage.

There may be more than one variant of the HOT 9 PRO depending on the amount of RAM. The one that’s now available according to Infinix Kenya is the 3GB RAM, 64GB storage variant. And it is a deal for just KES. 14,099.

The Facebook announcement by Infinix Kenya says the device is available countrywide in different retail stores for the recommended price. So if you’ve been eyeing the HOT 9, but wanted more RAM and more storage, get the new HOT 9 Pro.

I’ve already reviewed the HOT 9 Play for everyone who wants more screen, and more battery. Here’s the video:
