India is the world’s largest market for budget and mid-budget smartphones. This is the reason why India has been the most preferred market for Chinese smartphone maker companies in the last 6 years. French smartphone maker Infinix launched its Hot Series new models Hot 9 and Hot 9 Pro in the Indian market recently. These smartphones have been launched for less than Rs 10,000. The Infinix Hot 9 Series has been launched with a quad rear camera set-up. This series will challenge the budget smartphones of Chinese smartphone maker companies Xiaomi, Realme, Vivo, OPPO, or not, know through this review.

Being an ultra-budget smartphone, I would like to give full marks to its display. On the phone, you will get access to HD Plus content with a 60Hz refresh rate.

If the battery of the phone is strong, then after charging once, you can use it comfortably one day. Due to the 12nm processor, sometimes you can get the problem of lagging in it.
