Mobile phone giant, Infinix has unveiled a new member of the Hot 10 family. The new model, Infinix Hot 10S is positioned as a gaming phone and is also the company’s first to come out with Android 11 (running XOS 7.6 with a revamped UI).
The Hot 10S is equipped with a large 6.82” display with 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate and starts at $130. Some regions will get an NFC-enabled version, which has a couple of differences other than the obvious.
This is half of its gaming ambition and given that the resolution is 720p+, the other half should do quite well.
Moving on, the rear camera features a 48MP sensor with a Super Nightscape mode for low-light photography. It is also capable of recording 1080p videos and 240fps slow-mo clips.
The front camera has an 8MP camera with a bokeh mode for videos. This can be used for face unlock (which allegedly works even if you have a mask on) or you can opt for the fingerprint reader on the back. Also on the back are a 2MP depth camera an an “AI Lens” (whatever that is).
The phone features dual-SIM 4G connectivity with VoLTE support. Ultra Power Mode can stretch the last 5% of battery charge to 3 and a half hours of voice calls. Wired connectivity includes microUSB and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The battery is where the Hot 10S and Hot 10S NFC diverge. The 10S has a 6,000 mAh battery, which (according to Infinix) can deliver over 17 hours of gaming on a single charge or days and days of music playback. The NFC model has a 5,000 mAh battery. In both cases, charging is done at 10W.
