Infinix Hot 40i with 32 MP selfie shooter launched

Alongside the Hot 40 Pro, Infinix also launched two other phones in the Hot 40 series and they are the Hot 40, and Hot 40i. Just like the other two, the Hot 40i also come with a 5,000 mAh battery and a software feature called Xboost gaming engine to better optimize the hardware during gaming.

Infinix Hot 40i

The Hot 40i is the most affordable phone in the series. It comes with a Unisoc T606 chipset with an octa-core CPU with two performance cores Cortex-A75 at 1.6 GHz, and six Cortex-A55 units for efficiency at 1.6 GHz. The GPU is Mali-G57 MC1 with 650 Hz frequency.

The display is also a downgrade – a 6.56” LCD with HD+ resolution, but at least Infinix kept the 90 Hz refresh rate and introduced a 180 Hz touch sampling rate. RAM is either 4 GB or 8 GB, while storage is 128 GB or 256 GB.

The camera island of the Hot 40i looks similar to the Hot 40 and Hot 40 Pro and sports a 50 MP main and an AI cam. The 32 MP selfie shooter with the Magic Ring is retained though. The launcher is downgraded to XOS 13.0, but it should still use Android 13 as a base.

Another downgrade the phone took to keep a low price is the charging – the 5,000 mAh battery is limited to 18W speeds.
