The Hot 6 comes with XOS 3.3 Hummingbird on top of the Go Edition of Android Oreo, 16 GB of internal storage running on 1GB/2GB of RAM depending on your interest. The Hot 7 has a much newer XOS Honeybee 4.1, on top of Oreo 8.1, with a close to similar 16/32 GB storage and 1/2 GB RAM.
The Infinix Hot 7 comes with the new XOS Honeybee v4.1.0, running with Android 8.1.0. It gives you a smooth flow when using the phone, with added features such as beautiful icon designs, Fingerprint Call Recording as well as Quick App Launch.
If you have used any of the previous XOS skins, you’ll note that the fourth version allows for expanded view of content, to fit in the notch display of the Hot 7. You can basically switch to the normal display and back to the notch when you wish.
If you are to compare the two’s performance, it is obvious that you’ll fall for the Hot 7 given its much more customizable skin, and the smoothness it comes with.
Photography enthusiasts can take a slight look at this device because the Hot 7 boasts of a dual-rear camera which constitutes of a 13MP main & 8MP secondary sensor work both in the light and in the dark, with assistance from the dual flash light. At the front, you will settle for an 8MP sensor, which is fairly moderate since it is a budget device.
Being a budget device, you don’t expect to get nothing more than a Qualcomm MT6580P chipset and a Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 and an Adreno GPU for graphical support. The price of Infinix Hot 7 is expected to start from N45,000 depending on the deal and location.
