Since the beginning of the year, Infinix has not launched a new smartphone in Kenya until now. The Infinix Hot S3 that was unveiled in other countries never made its way to Kenya. With that said, those who have been waiting for a new smartphone from Infinix are in luck as the company has finally unveiled the Hot 6 Pro in the country.
The Infinix Hot 6 Pro is available in two variants one with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage space and the other one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space. The two phones are available for Ksh 13,699 and Ksh 15,699 respectively from e-commerce platform, Kilimall.
The Infinix Hot 6 Pro directly competes with the Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 and the company wants to highlight that. The one thing that Infinix wants its customers to know that this phone comes with a dual camera setup that the company says helps take refined images of any colour. I do have a review unit and this is ne of the things I will be testing out when reviewing the phone.
The Kenyan unveiling of the HOT 6 Pro, took place at the National Archives, with local e-commerce giant Kilimall co-currently premiering initial sales. The launch event, styled under the theme of ‘Double Amazing Xperience’, saw the first 100 customers to buy the device get free movie tickets and amazing prizes.
According To Infinix, the key target markets are the emerging markets of Africa, Middle East, South America and Asia regions, with its main target group being mostly young people of between 15 and 25 years. Using the Android 8.0 (Oreo), the device is well balanced in its execution of various processes.
Speaking ahead of the launch, Infinix Brand Manager Mr. Zhang said, “HOT 6 Pro is a great addition to the HOT series portfolio. This is a smartphone meant for the young and tech savvy but budget conscious. They will get to be very creative in summer using this dynamic yet beautiful device. I challenge all the young to try it out and see for themselves.”
HOT 6 Pro comes with a 6.0” 18:9 Infinity screen, a Qualcomm snapdragon processor, a powerful two rear-facing cameras of 13MP and 2MP lens adopting PDAF for fast focus, Face Unlock capability, a 4000mAh battery capacity and sleek unibody design.
HOT 6 Pro comes with a very good dual camera system that is unrivalled in its price segment. The images captured by it will be satisfactory even to the most stringent of selfie taking slay queen. There is also the Face Unlock feature that is can be unlocked at a glance. To top it all up, there is the 4000nAh power battery to sustain operations all day long, making HOT 6 Pro quite a real catch.
Infinix carried out a collaboration with several young volunteers who tried out the new phone’s exciting features, from its double camera to experiencing gaming on its large infinity screen. They all gave back a more than positive feedback.
