A few hours after publishing on the launch of the HOT 10S in other markets, and speculating it’ll be available for the Kenyan market, Infinix Kenya has shared a teaser of a new device they’re bringing to the market. It is to be called the Infinix HOT 10T and it makes everything a little more confusing.
From the teased specs we can speculate that the HOT 10T will be the HOT 10S with NFC we’d talked about in the previous article. So for the HOT 10 Series, Infinix will be having a lineup that looks like this:
- Infinix HOT 10 Lite
- Infinix HOT 10
- Infinix HOT 10 Play
- Infinix HOT 10S – For other markets
- Infinix HOT 10T – For the Kenyan market
Infinix has said of this new launch that the company has continued to portray an unrivalled ability in making phones with great performance, design and quality. The company has pointed to the latest recognition where the Infinix Zero 8 won the iF Design Award for Discipline Product Design in the Telecommunications category. Infinix says having that in mind, they expect the HOT 10T to be a huge feast for the eyes in addition to being a power house in performance and usability.
According to the teases from Infinix, the new HOT 10T will have a 48MP main lens with “super nightscape” for low-light photography. It will be paired with a 2MP depth sensor, and an AI lens (whatever this is). It will also feature a gorgeous outward appearance and will be a good device for those who love to game, socialise, have fun and spend lots of time browsing social media.
Infinix says the device will have a high-performance chipset that will enable it to offer performance that surpasses expectations for the segment. It will feature a 5000mAh battery.
The company says the phone is set to launch soon, and they’re doing teaser campaigns on social media with the hashtag #FromNewbie to Champion.
