Infinix Mobility has released one of their Hot series which was announced in April and was released into the African market this May 2018.
After the release of Hot 5, the company is coming out with the new smartphone called Infinix Hot 6 pro.
The Hot Series in Infinix is the bestseller in the history of the company, and, it is almost replicate side of the grand series in Samsung.
Infinix Hot 6 pro comes with certain unique features that outsmart the other phones in the Hot series, including bigger internal storage space and RAM size.

The new Infinix Hot 6 pro comes with an advanced camera which packs 13MP + 2MP dual rear camera and 8MP front camera for shooting selfies.

The Hot 6 features a plastic body design just as in Hot 5, but the dual camera feature makes the look unique.
The cameras are now at the top left corner in a horizontal position, instead of the usual vertical way.
The dual-LED flash also is in its normal position beside the cameras.
The fingerprint scanner is in its usual position and ready to unlock the device in 0.1s.
With the new face unlock feature that Infinix has introduced to their new devices such as Zero 5, Hot 6 pro also follows the same trend with this technology out of the box.
The phone also features a front dual speaker with an amazing surround sound system.
The technology creates room for dual audio cavities and makes them compatible with other components.
Dirac Stereo WideningTM technology produces a realistic stereo sound that you would not expect from a mobile device.
The phone measures 7.8mm in thickness and weigh 145g, which is lighter than the preceding ones.
The first thing you’ll notice at the front is the major reduction in bezels, the narrow bezels are almost non-existent as well. This is the first from the Hot budget series with 18:9 aspect ratio screen.
This will definitely delight Infinix Hot 6 pro users.
The bigger 6.0-inch HD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen here has a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. It also has a pixel per inch density of 282, making details on the screen sharp enough as well.
The Infinix Hot 6 Pro is powered by a non-removable Li-Ion 4000mAh battery with fast charging technology.
The Hot 6 battery capacity is the same as that of Hot 5, Hot 5 Lite, and Hot 4 pro.
The 4000mAh high capacity battery combined with the energy-efficient XOS provides at least 2 days usage for an average user.
It should take up to 2hrs to charge your battery.
The 4000mAh battery is good such that, when going on a long trip, you can be rest assured that your device would last you well through the day and into the next.
Infinix Hot 6 pro comes with an improved charging experience with the latest Xcharge technology.
The Xcharge reduces the loss of current conversion and reduces heat from charging to provide better overall efficiency and safety.
Unlike the other smartphones in the Hot series, Infinix Hot 6 packs a dual 13MP + 2MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture and 5MP front camera.
The 13MP camera packs five internal lens elements and multiple shooting modes to capture photos with the finest detail.
The 2MP shooter helps in focusing and doing portrait modes as well.
You can easily record videos of 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second. There’s also a front LED flash as well for night selfies and video calls.
