Infinix is bringing out its next Hot 12 series phone, the Infinix Hot 12 Pro, tomorrow. It will be a budget phone and will come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, making it one of the cheapest phones with this configuration.
The Hong Kong-based brand teased the phone on Flipkart (opens in new tab) already and revealed some of the phone details. Infinix Hot 12 Pro will launch on August 2 at 12pm. The company did not reveal when the phone will go on sale.
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 brand did not reveal the chipset of this phone. It might come with the Unisoc T610 SoC as the Infinix Hot 12 Play, let’s wait until tomorrow to be sure.
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 a single variant of 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It’s really 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 would likely just be an auxiliary camera that doesn’t perform any functions like the secondary cameras on other budget Infinix phones.
The phone will come 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.
