Infinix Mobility has released a variant of the Infinix Hot 4 which is now available on Jumia. The new variant is called the Infinix Hot 4 Lite, but it’s not the first variant of the Hot 4 we’ve seen; the Infinix Hot 4 Pro has been released previously.
As you would guess from its name, the Infinix Hot 4 Lite is a watered down version of the Hot 4, and it was released to suit those who want the juicy features of the Hot 4 but can’t purchase it because of its price. The Hot 4 Lite can also be regarded as a Hot 3 with larger battery, XOS/Marshmallow and better selfie camera.
Infinix Hot 4 Lite Specifications
Display & Design
The Infinix Hot 4 Lite has the same design language as the Hot 4. The back is textured, the LED display is 5.5 inches wide and it has an HD (1280 * 720) pixel resolution.
Memory & Performance
The same SoC setup in the Hot 4 is also present in the Infinix Hot 4 Lite. It is powered by the same MediaTek MT6580 processor with a speed of 1.3GHz and four Cortex-A53 processor cores. It also contains a Mali 400 GPU.
When I wrote about the Hot 4, I was surprised that it came with 2GB RAM and I talked of the possibility of other storage variants coming out in the future. Now this is coming to pass, though I didn’t expect a storage variant lower than 1GB RAM considering the fact that Infinix already has a lot of smartphones with that RAM size in Nigeria.
The Infinix Hot 4 Lite has 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 32GB with micro SD card.
The Hot 4 Lite possesses the same 4,000mAh battery capacity found in its standard variant. The phone comes with a 5V/2A power adapter and Infinix’s Xcharge for faster charging, though this has been said to have minimum effect in the Hot 4.
The Hot 4 Lite has 3G WCDMA network capability, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless connectivity, a USB 3.0 port which gives it OTG support, GPS for navigation, a 3.5mm headphone jack for audio streaming, and a Dual Micro-SIM slot.
The same camera setup still exists in the Hot 4 Lite. The rear bears an 8MP camera while a 5MP selfie camera is present at the front. The front camera is paired with a soft LED flash.
Software and Hardware
Sadly, the fingerprint sensor is absent on the Hot 4 Lite. It still has two stereo speakers with Smart Voice noise reduction technology.
The Infinix Hot 4 Lite runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Infinix’s XOS Chameleon UI layered on top.
