Infinix HOT 9 Play is a mid-range smartphone that runs Android 9 Pie operating system out of the box. Its highlights are the 6.6-inch Infinity-O display, 13-megapixel dual camera at the back, and the massive 6000mAh battery. There is 10W fast charging to speed up quick recharges of the battery.
Like other 2020 smartphones in its class, the display of the HOT 9 Play is one of its major weak points: it has only 720×1600 pixels, resulting in a very low pixel density for a 6.6″ screen. The punch hole in the display houses an 8-megapixel camera for selfies.
