It appears we’re getting a new Infinix smartphone soon. The Indonesian arm of the Transsion Holdings-owned Infinix Mobiles firm is teasing the launch of a new Infinix Hot series set to launch in the country soon. Dubbed the Infinix Hot 9, the upcoming device is expected to succeed the Infinix Hot 8 series which was launched back in 2019.
Specifically, the firm via its Indonesia twitter handle realized a teaser poster that basically confirms the said Infinix Hot 9 will be officially launched on March 23rd. We are not sure what nature of launch event this will be, however, there is every likelihood the device will be released via a press release, or perhaps, an online-only event.
So far, it’s been revealed via the teaser poster attached here that the Infinix Hot 9 device will come with a Quad-camera setup on the rear panel. While that a bit of an upgrade over the Hot 8 with triple rear cameras, we are not sure what the front design looks like. Perhaps, the Transsion Holdings-owned Infinix firm will make a switch from the water-drop notch on the Hot 8 to a punch-hole design.
Other than that, the teaser poster also makes it clear that the Hot 9 smartphone from Infinix mobile will retain a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. And yes, the handset also gets a single LED flash for low light scenarios. And much like the Infinix Hot 8 from last year, the Infinix Hot 9 listing on the Indonesian e-commerce portal Lazada reveals the device will come fitted with a 5,000 mAh battery. Also confirmed via the e-commerce listing is 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, while it remains to be confirmed if it will come with an upgraded SoC.
Infinix Hot 9 Pro likely launching too
While the Infinix Hot 9 set to launch in Indonesia will be coming with a vertical Quad-camera setup, a newly leaked image making the round suggesting the firm is also preparing a variant with a glossy green finished back panel and a circular Quad-camera setup with a Quad-LED light. Perhaps, this will launch in some countries as the Infinix Hot 9 Pro. Speaking of the camera setup, the leaked image suggests the alleged Infinix Hot 9 Pro will get a 48-megapixel main camera, perhaps, with an ultra-wide sensor, a macro sensor, and a depth sensor. Unlike the standard Hot 9 with a rear fingerprint scanner, the leaked image reveals a device with no rear fingerprint scanner, That perhaps, suggests it could come with an in-display scanner or one embedded into the power button.
Infinix Hot 9 launch date
That is the much that has been revealed as of now. However, we expect some more revealing teasers in the coming hours, since the unveiling date is only a few hours from now. As per the official teaser, the Infinix Hot 9, will perhaps, launch in Indonesia first on March 23rd before a wider release. For the launch outside of Indonesia, a separate teaser on Facebook reveals the firm is planning a separate launch for April 7th, maybe in India.
