Infinix Hot 9 Pro speaks the same design language as its base model the Hot 9. The only difference in design between the two lies with their dimensions. All things other remain constant from the gem cut texture design to what each phone weighs. And maybe that the unique gem cut texture design of Infinix Hot 9 Pro arrives in two rather than four color options. Namely Violet and Ocean Wave Beautiful. Infinix speaks of it as, “Appealing to the youthful spirit and amplifying the series’ positioning.” [source: website]. Hot 9 Pro has these dimensions 165 x 76.8 x 8.7 mm and it weighs about 185 grams. You will notice the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and that the phone has a plastic build (frame and back) with a glass front panel.

For its display, Infinix Hot 9 Pro features what Infinix calls a Pin-hole Super Cinema Display. Three things you must know about this display. First is that it is a big 6.6-inch HD+ screen. The next is that it can brighten up to 480 nits type. brightness and lastly that it has a 90.5 screen-to-body ratio. Before we go any further, about that pin-hole name. What it means is it is a hole punch within the display wherein the selfie camera sits. It seems smartphone companies are coming up with fancy names for this hole punch. Oppo calls it Neo-display as we see on Oppo A92 while Samsung, Infinity-O display as on the Galaxy A51 and A71.
As already mentioned this is a 6.6 inches panel that covers 105.2 cm2 surface area. That it is a cinematic display should be quite self-explanatory. We all know what cinema is, now join that with a display. That 720 x 1600 pixels resolution (see Infinix Hot 9) of Infinix Hot 9 Pro does not give an impression of a Pro smartphone. Even less agreeable with is ~266 PPI density which this display has. Also, note that this is an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that has support for 16M colors.
Now turning the focus to the performance, OS, and platform of this phone. The phone is powered by an Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The phone runs Android 10 with XOS version 6.0. Not sure if it is XOS 6 that brings the Social Turbo section which has features such as WhatsApp call recorder. You can also create stickers for WhatsApp and enable Beauty mode in video calls. More on this later. But this much we do know. Infinix Hot 9 Pro comes with 4GB RAM and 64 GB of expandable internal storage. Strange however how Infinix only brings a 64GB model. Hopefully, a 128GB version will be added in the future given that this is a Pro phone (see Tecno Camon 12).
You might want to check out the camera features of Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro – 48MP. On the back panel of Infinix Hot 9 Pro, you will notice a 4-camera setup. These four lenses constitute a main 48MP wide lens, 2MP macro, 2MP sensor, and a QVGA (low light sensor). Infinix flatly calls it the 48MP Quad AI camera. Perhaps the outstanding feature of this camera is that AI body shaping aspect which is can get you the gym results you so badly want without going to an actual gym (bad advice, but a great feature).
Infinix Hot 9 Pro comes with a s 8 MP wide selfie camera. Remember it is an in-display lens yes? One with a magical LED flash. So then the Hot 9 Pro has an LED flash for both the selfie camera and the main camera. That’s one other nice touch about this phone. Interestingly it is capable of shooting [email protected] videos just like the main camera. Okay so this is a bit off-topic but I will have to mention it anyway. It is a DTS-HD sound. Infinix Hot 9 Pro has powerful DTS sound to enhance the gaming, music, and video watching experience.
Infinix Hot 9 Pro Battery
Powered with a non-removable Li-Po 5000 mAh battery is Infinix Hot 9 Pro. Not only is it a high capacity battery, but also one capable of AI smart power saving. This battery capacity is even larger than what we see on Infinix S5 Pro. Although there is no official telling on whether or not this battery has fast charging capabilities, take comfort in the extended number of hours it will take before charging is required.
