Infinix Mobile, one of the Transsion Holding company is set to release its annual Hot series device in Nigeria. The Infinix Hot 11 is a revamped device that can give great competition to most flagship smartphones out there. Undoubtedly, this would be a new beginning in the smartphone world as it’ll surely be among Infinix’s best devices in years to come.
Fortunately, the Hot 11 is the company’s latest budget device and unlike previous models, it sports some major upgrades you can’t afford to resist. It’s a beautifully designed smartphone that has a great combination of functionality and style.
The Infinix Hot 11 will be the direct successor of the Hot 10 and Hot 10 Lite launched in September 2020 which is exactly a year today. The Hot 11 is actually a smartphone killer and will introduce a new beginning with its upgraded features into the smartphone world. Undoubtedly, the latest Infinix Hot 11 blew our expectations and actually raised the bar for other mid-range brands to follow. Below is our full review, verdict, features, and price of the revamped Infinix Hot 11 in Nigeria.
Design and Display
The Infinix Hot 11 is sizzling hot when it comes to design as it has a rear panel that reflects when light shines on it. The colour gradient back is one of the best we’ve seen on infinix devices and you can choose to buy yours on either Midnight Black, Violet, Ocean Wave, and Quetzal Cyan colour options.
There’s a fingerprint sensor and camera bump at the back which is nothing new to us as it’s a feature we’ve been seeing on other infinix smartphones. At the bottom are the speaker grill, micro-USB charging port, and a headphone jack. The power button and volume rockers are perfectly positioned at the top right corner for easy hand reach and they’re tactile enough more than that of the Hot 10.

The Infinix Hot 11 is rumoured to have a 6.6-inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. This alongside a 172.8 x 78.3 x 7.8 mm dimensions will bring out a magnificent display with stunning colours that’ll be good for outdoor use. In addition, is a 20:9 aspect ratio that brings out an immersive viewing experience that will make your gaming session a memorable one.
The Infinix Hot 11 features a total number of 5 cameras with one up front and four at the rear panel. There’s an 8-MP punch-hole selfie camera at the front while the back includes a 16-megapixel primary sensor, a 2-megapixel macro camera, another 2-megapixel depth sensor and a QVGA lens.
Infinix equipped the Hot 11 with plenty of camera features such as AI cam, Bokeh, Beauty, Super night mode, Panorama, etc. In terms of performance, these cameras delivered even above expectations, especially in ideal lighting conditions. However, lowlight camera performance is nothing to write home about as photos were taken with lack of details and are not bright enough.
Software and Performance
With Android 10 and XOS 6.0 as it was rumoured, you’re getting system-wide dark mode, a new gesture navigation option, updated security settings, native screen recording, Game Turbo, and many others.
Performance is not bad as the Helio A25 chipset paired with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM depending on the variant you’re choosing will end lags and make switching between apps swift. Fortunately, mid-range games played well on this device even when they’re set at a high refresh rate. However, it’s worth knowing that you cannot play intense games in high settings rather at medium for a smooth game experience.
Just like most Android phones, you’ll be getting unwanted notifications to download certain apps which are annoying. However, you can easily restrict some apps from sending you notifications by going to the phone’s settings. Overall, the Infinix Hot 11‘s performance is quite great as it’s a midrange device and you won’t expect to have the best features on it.
Infinix Hot 11: Battery Capacity
The Infinix Hot 11 is expected to feature a 5000mAh battery life that’ll let you use the phone for hours without connecting it to a charger. Undoubtedly, it’s one of the best features of this smartphone and you can stay for more than 48 hours if you’re not a heavy user without experiencing any battery drainage. However, we’re not yet sure whether the Infinix Hot 11 will feature any fast charge support but we’ll try to update you guys when it’s certain.
