INFINIX HOT 9 PLAY REVIEW; DESIGN AND DISPLAY
The Infinix hot 9 play features a gem cut texture design and even with the large battery measures a slimness of 8.9 mm.
This ensures that it fits well into the palm of the hand and do you know that it design is similar to that of Infinix Note 7 lite.
Looking at the rear you’ll find the camera lens having a vertical alignment and then, close to it is mounted a fingerprint scanner.
While moving on to the center of the phone is found pasted, the Infinix logo.
Also you get a dual Nano SIM slot and a separate slot for Micro-SD.
When Talking about display, you should know that Hot 9 play has more to offer than that of it predecessor.
Instead of the normal 6.6 inches this phone comes with 6.82 HD+ cinematic display and infinixmobility says that the 20.5:9 full view ratio is closer to the IMax movie ratio.
Hey, that’s not all about the display, you forgot the tear drop top dotch that gives this phone a classic display.
If there’s anything I love writing review about, it’s the next sub heading.
Rear and Front Shooters of Infinix Hot 9 Play
Like I stated earlier that the rear camera lens has a vertical arrangement i.e the triple rear camera. And as you all know, each of this lens has various functions and my job is to break it down.
We have the 13 MP main camera equipped with AI feature.
Macro lens that gives you a clearer look of those micro object in a macro format.
And a QVGA low light sensor.
The rear camera is supported by triple rear flash and features such as HDR, paranoma, bokeh, Ai beauty, stickers…
With the rear camera you can have a maximum picture size reaching up to 4864*2736 pixels, this explains how clear the images taken with this phone camera are.

The front camera also comes with cool features but the first and foremost is the selfie LED Flash hidden at the top of the display, and then, HDR, Ai beauty, portrait e.t.c.
Hardware, Processor and OS
Infinixmobility stated that the quad core was upgraded. So looking beneath the hot 9 play is found a fast octa core processor, just like the flash, operating at impossible speed.
It’s backed up by; wait you were expecting 3 GB sorry but it’s 2 GB of RAM and a wonderful storage of 32 GB.
Don’t stop there, you could further expand the storage via Micro SD up to 256GB.
This phone comes with Xos 6.0 and runs on the latest Android 10 which comes along with dark theme feature. The darktheme features offers a fantastic experience.
Security and Battery
Your files, data, documents are properly secured by first the face scanner and fingerprint scanner.
This phones battery is a large one and with this kind of battery capacity (6000 mAh) reverse charging is more than possible, as long as an OTG cord is available.
