These devices will be available on Flipkart at an introductory price of Rs 8,499 and Rs 9,499 respectively. The all-new Hot 9 series by Infinix is poised to set new benchmarks in the sub-10K smartphone category.
The Hot 9 series stands out for its a 6.6-inch punch-hole display that is near bezel-less with a 90.5% screen-to-body ratio and 480 nits brightness along with HD+ resolution on a 2.5D curved glass display.

The smartphones sport a stunning gem-cut texture design with 2.5D curved glass unibody finish.
In terms of optics, the Hot 9 series continues with its tradition of offering the best in class camera in its price category. While the Hot 9 comes with a 13MP AI quad rear camera with an f/1.8 large aperture and a triple LED Flash, the Hot 9 Pro features a 48MP AI quad rear camera with quad LED Flash along with an f/1.8 large aperture and 6P Optical lens. Both the smartphones are equipped with a 2MP macro lens that allows photo enthusiasts to capture the smallest of the objects with greater detail and also feature an 8MP AI selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture, dedicated LED flash, and multiple camera modes such as portrait and wide selfie.
