The Infinix Hot 9 Play is a new line of Smartphone which is under the Hot 9-series. It is the more affordable version of the Infinix hot 9. The central focus of this Hot 9 play Smartphone is the large screen.

Rather than the 6.6-inch display used in the Infinix Hot 9, the Hot 9 Play comes with a bigger 6.82-inch screen, similar to that of the Infinix Note 7. The large 6.82-inch display uses a 720 x 1640 pixels resolution and has a dewdrop notch overhead. There is also the presence of a larger 6000mAh battery. It also has three rear cameras.

I’ll also love to recommend the Infinix Hot 9, which comes with amazing features. Although, the Hot 9 and Hot 9 Play can’t be compared with the ITel A56 in price range, because it’s more expensive. The iTel A56 comes with features to rival these devices.

Therefore, could argue that the top-selling point and the most eye-catching feature of this Infinix Hot 9 Play is the battery. Then, add to the fact that it has a large screen. Below are the key features of the phone;
