Infinix launched the Infinix Hot 12 Pro in India. It’s a budget phone that comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, making it one of the cheapest phones with this configuration. The 8/128GB variant is priced at Rs. 11,999.
The Hong Kong-based brand is teasing the phone on Flipkart and it finally launched in India today.
Infinix Hot 12 Pro: Pricing and Availability
Infinix Hot 12 Pro launches at a starting price of Rs. 10,999 for the 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage variant. The phone will only be available on Flipkart (opens in new tab)and the sale will begin on August 8.
Here is the complete price list for all variants:
|6/64 GB||10,999 rupees|
|8/128 GB||LOL. 11,999|
There is a bank offer discount for the first sale, reducing the price by Rs. 1000 for both variants. The card offer is available for ICICI Bank and Kotak Bank credit cards, debit cards and EMI transactions.
Infinix Hot 12 Pro: Key Features and Specs
The Infinix Hot 12 Pro will come with a 6.6-inch LCD screen with HD+ resolution. It will also support a 90Hz refresh rate like the other branded smartphones like Infinix Hot 11s and Infinix Hot 12 Play. It will also support a 180Hz ring sampling rate. Infinix could have squeezed a Full HD+ panel into the phone, considering the Infinix Hot 11s have the same.
The Infinix Hot 12 Pro comes with the Unisoc T616 SoC, which goes hand in hand in terms of performance with the Mediatek Helio G85 and Mediatek Helio G88 chipsets. Making it one of the best performing phones in the segment. It’s definitely better than the Redmi 10A Sport that launched with the Mediatek Helio A22 chipset last week.
One thing the brand has revealed in terms of specs is that the phone will use UFS 2.2 storage for the phone. And it will come in two variants, one with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage and the other with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It’s the only phone in this segment to come with this combination of RAM and internal storage.
Coming to the cameras, the phone will come with a dual camera setup as we can see from the teasers. The main camera will be a 50MP camera, while the secondary camera is not officially mentioned. It would probably just be an auxiliary camera that doesn’t perform any functions like the secondary cameras on other budget Infinix phones.
On the front, there’s an 8MP front camera for selfies and it’s aided by a dedicated dual LED flash. The phone comes with a 5000mAh battery and will be charged by 18W fast charging.
There should be more phones with 128GB of storage in the budget segment
There aren’t really many phones on the budget with 128GB of internal storage. The newly launched Redmi 10A Sport and Techno Spark 9 (opens in new tab) are the only smartphones that come with 128GB of internal storage. Now Infinix Hot 12 Pro will be added to the list. But it’s not enough, more brands should consider adding 128GB as an optional variant to their models in the budget segment.
128GB is usually reserved for phones costing above Rs. 15,000. Customers would love the option of a 128GB storage variant if they had the option for the price of Rs. 10,000.
