After their widespread social media campaign with the #SeeEverything hashtag, Infinix Mobility has finally unveiled the Infinix Hot 6X and it is finally available in stores.
I have already done an article on the unboxing and first impressions of the Hot 6X.
The Infinix Hot 6X differs a lot from the earlier Infinix Hot 6 and Hot 6 pro when it comes to looks, feel and general aesthetics.
The Hot 6X will be available in all authorized Infinix retail stores in the following colour variants: Midnight Black, Champagne Gold, Kent Blue, and Bordeaux Red.

Features of the Infinix Hot 6X
A Hot Notch, More Screen Space
What’s most recognisable on the phone is the screen notch which has been taken from the Hot S3X. The notch gives more screen size to the user. The Infinix Hot 6X is the second phone from Infinix to sport the notch.
When you measure the Infinix Hot 6 Pro’s screen and you compare it to that of the new Hot 6X, you realise there is a screen gain of 0.2 inches which ultimately takes the 6X’s screen size to 6.2 inches.
The screen of the phone has a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels like the Hot 6 Pro. However, the bezels of the phone have been made slimmer, hence a 19:9 aspect ratio.
The screen also has a 1500:1 contrast ratio and packs 500 nits brightness.
AI Selfie Camera with low light shots
Embedded in the Hot 6X’s notch is an 8-megapixels f/2.0 aperture selfie camera with specials features like Face ID and AI Beauty mode as well as a flashlight.
The camera also promises to deliver quality selfies in low light situations. Therefore if you are in a space with limited lighting and you still want to take a selfie, the photos will be of much better quality.
The dual rear camera comes in 13MP (f/1.8) + 2MP (f/2.4) primary and secondary lens configuration respectively.
The dual camera setup supports Portrait mode which will add reasonable Bokeh effects to your photos when activated.
Face ID; Faster Unlock Technology
The new Infinix Hot 6X also has a Face Unlock feature.
Unlike in the Infinix S3 where an OTA update was rolled out for the feature, it came with the OS in the Hot 6X.
You can enable “Face Unlock” feature just after you set up the phone. Infinix Hot S6X users can manually enable this new software feature by going to Settings and click on Security & location, then selecting Face ID.
