One of the most notable features of the Infinix Hot 30 is its 6.78-inch AMOLED HD+ screen, which boasts a 90Hz refresh rate and a peak brightness of up to 600 nits. The screen also has a touch sampling rate of 270Hz and is certified with WideVine L1, providing users with an immersive viewing experience. Additionally, the phone is available in several colours, including Sonic White, Surfing Green, and Racing Black, with a glass-like holographic back that adds to its visual appeal.
With its upgraded Helio G88 chipset, the Infinix Hot 30 offers a significant boost in performance over its predecessor, the Helio G85. Coupled with 8GB of onboard RAM and up to 8GB of virtual RAM, users can expect a seamless and lag-free experience on this device. Additionally, the Hot 30 comes pre-installed with Android 13, which is the latest version of the Android operating system. As a result, users can enjoy the latest features and security updates right out of the box, making the Infinix Hot 30 one of the most advanced smartphones available in the market.
When it comes to the Infinix Hot 30, the camera system is definitely a standout feature.
