Infinix Hot 8 Unboxing, Specs And Price In Kenya


There are two versions of the Infinix Hot 8. The Infinix Hot 8 and the Infinix Hot 8 Lite. I had a chance to unbox the Infinix Hot 8. The following are my findings. At first glance on the packaging. I noticed the Files icon at the bottom. The image is there because the Infinix Hot 8 was a partnership between Infinix and Google.

Let me entice you more by revealing this spoiler. The Hot 8 has a 5000mAh battery. The display is also big. That is because it is a 6.6 Inch water drop display.


The major difference between the Infinix Hot 8 and Hot 8 Lite is the network. The Hot 8 is a 4G device while the Hot 8 Lite is a 3G device. The RAM and ROM values are the same for both variants.


I have already done a video unboxing of the Infinix Hot 8. Thee video also introduces you to the Files Application. I had mentioned earlier that the smartphone came pre installed with the Google Application.

  • Silicone phone case

  • A 2.0A charger
