Infinix has launched some really good value for money budget phones in the past year in the Indian market, and today, the company launched yet another phone in this segment named the Infinix Hot 11S. Again, this phone offers some incredible specifications for a starting price of ₹10,999, such as the MediaTek Helio G88 SOC, a 50 Megapixel camera with f/1.6 aperture lens, a 5,000mAh battery, a 90Hz Full-HD+ LCD, stereo speakers, and more.
Design-wise, it won’t be wrong to say that Infinix took design notes from Huawei since the phone has a design similar to the Huawei Nova 8 with that similar-looking oval-shaped camera module. Now, there are only three cameras in it, and that fourth circle that you see has the text “50MP” written in it. The fingerprint scanner is there on the back as well. The finish on the back panel gives this phone a unique look.
There is a flat display with a hole-punch cutout in the middle, and it is a big 6.78-inch Full-HD+ LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate, 180Hz touch-sampling rate, 500 Nits of brightness, and NEG DINOREX T2X-1 glass protection. Under the hood, it gets the MediaTek Helio G88 SOC, and we have seen this chipset powering the Redmi 10 Prime, which launched in India earlier this month for ₹12,499. So, the Infinix Hot 11S is now the cheapest phone with the Helio G88 in India. There is 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, and that’s the only storage option.
The battery size is 5,000mAh, and the phone supports 18W fast charging as well. In terms of software, Android 11 runs out of the box with XOS 7.6 on top.
As for the cameras, you get a triple camera array on the back, which includes a primary 50 Megapixel sensor with an f/1.6 aperture lens and 4-in-1 pixel binning. There is a secondary 2 Megapixel camera and a third “so-called” AI lens. For selfies, you get an 8 Megapixel camera on the front. The phone also gets a stereo speaker setup, and there is a triple card slot.
Finally, regarding pricing and availability, Infinix Hot 11S comes in three colors – Black, Green, and Purple. There is only one configuration that you get, i.e., 4GB + 64GB. The price is ₹10,999. You can get the phone via Flipkart, and the sale starts on the 21st of September.
