Powerful and redefined performance: Backed by a powerful Octa Core G37 gaming Processor and its capable Arm Cortex-A53 CPU, the brand-new Infinix HOT 20 Play offers top speeds of 2.3GHz. Using a power-efficient 12nm production process, the G37 delivers superb power efficiency during long hours of gameplay. To further optimise the gaming performance, the HOT 20 PLAY, for the first time, uses Aerospace-Grade Cooling Material, commonly used for heat dissipation of rocket engine nozzles – hexagonal boron nitride, also known as white graphene. It ensures excellent antenna performance while dissipating heat. The device also features the Dar-link 2.0 engine, which provides intelligent dynamic management of CPU and GPU to ensure smooth performance in heavy-duty games and prolongs the battery life significantly. To avoid interruptions due to a weak network, HOT 20 Play comes installed with Erdal Engine 3.0 to let users watch short videos, even in weak signal scenarios.
The Infinix HOT 20 5G is the most budget friendly smartphone backed by a 6nm Dimensity 810 processor, which ensures outstanding all-around performance with a dominant frequency of 2x 2.4GHz Cortex-A76 and 6x 2GHz Cortex-A55, which is 20% faster than its predecessor. This offers an excellent experience of faster application response, higher game FPS (frame rate) and a smoother network connection. To elevate the user performance for everyday gamers, the device comes installed with a Bionic Breathing cooling technology, which can transpire heat out quickly, ensuring 100% thermal conductivity and reducing the chipset to 5 degrees within 2 minutes.
Operating on the latest Android 12 with XOS 10.6 on top, both devices promise lag-free content consumption with massive 64 GB storage space and a 3-in-1 memory card slot, that is expandable up to 256GB on HOT 20 Play via MicroSD and 1TB on HOT 20 5G via MicroSD. The devices are equipped with Memfusion RAM technology that enables the 4GB RAM to add up to 7GB RAM (4GB LPDDR 4x RAM + 3GB of expandable virtual RAM).
HOT 20 5G comes with Dual 5G SIM cards that support premium VoNR voice service, allowing users to enjoy high-quality voice with low latency on either of the two SIM cards. 12 Bands will support it to ensure call and data concurrency on the 5G network. Users can keep playing a game with one SIM card and have another to make a phone call without affecting the game server connection.
Additional Smart features: While the Infinix HOT 20 Play has been designed with a Fingerprint sensor on the back panel, the HOT 20 5G has a side fingerprint unlock system for enhanced security. They both come with an On-The-Go (OTG) support, allowing users to connect a full-sized USB flash drive or USB A cable to the devices through the Micro USB or USB-C charging port. The OTG cable also allows reverse charging, allowing the devices to directly access files on a USB flash drive or digital camera or connect to an external device such as a keyboard or mouse.
Feature-rich Camera experience: The all-new HOT 20 Play continues the tradition of Infinix by offering the best-in-class camera. It features a 13 MP Dual (f1.8) rear camera with a dedicated AI lens, quad-LED flash and a robust image algorithm to provide portrait Bokeh capture that optimally enhances the focus of each photo.
Simultaneously, HOT 20 5G sports a 50MP Super Nightscape Camera with dual LED Flash that promises colourful, bright, and sharp photos under even the most difficult lighting conditions. Its Super Night Mode leverages AI algorithms and an f/1.6 large aperture to bring in more light in every shot taken, even when it’s pitch dark. The rear camera also has a real-time eye-tracking autofocus feature paired with AI algorithms that helps to deliver more natural and studio-style pictures. On the front, both smartphones feature an 8MP in-display selfie camera with a single LED flash.
Big Battery with fast charging: HOT 20 Play is backed by the biggest battery in the segment, 6000mAh, which keeps the smartphone operational even after long hours of heavy usage. Meanwhile, HOT 20 5G is backed by a 5000mAh Power Monster Battery with Power Marathon power-saving technology, which keeps the smartphone operational all day at a stretch with a single charge when used moderately. Users can now say goodbye to battery anxiety. The device can also deliver 125 hours of music playback, 20 hours of navigation and 11 hours of gaming.
The HOT 20 Series devices are compatible with 18W Type C quick charging, allowing users to do their favorite things, for as long as they want, without bothering about frequently recharging the phone.
