Infinix is jacking up the prices of two models, Hot 9 Play and Hot 10, in Pakistan. Hot 9 Play came out earlier this year and its successor, Hot 10, launched in September. The duo falls in the ultra-budget range, featuring giant screens and batteries.
The Hot 10 is available in three memory and storage variants — 64GB+4GB is the one that got the increase. It had a starting price of
Rs. 19,999, and it's now retailing for Rs. 20,999. MediaTek Helio G70, which debuted last year, powers the phone. The battery is 5200 mAh but lacks any support for fast charging.
The screen is an oversized 6.78" LCD with a hole punch cutout and a standard HD+ resolution. For Rs. 20,499, the Xiaomi Redmi 9 offers a Full HD+ screen, Helio G80, and 18W fast charging. Hot 10 has slimmer bezels but the plastic back features a generic glossy aesthetic.
