The infinix hot 12 is the first infinix phone to run on an operating system of Android 12, XOS 10.6. I notice a deviation from this OS while reviewing the infinix hot 12 play that comes about a month later that supports an OS of Android 11.


The infinix hot 12 was launched on the 26th of April, 2022. Let us avoid the urge to conclude that the infinix hot 12 could be better than the infinix hot 12 play. We noticed that the infinix hot 12 play has a superior battery with Li-Ion 6000 mAh compared to the infinix hot 12 with a battery type of Li-Ion 5000 mAh. 

I will advise you to read all through; while I drop the review for the infinix hot 12, I will point out some key differences. Going by that will help you to make the better choice.

Infinix Hot 12 Specifications

Features to look out for:


Infinix Hot 12 comes in any of the following colors: Racing Black, Legend White, Origin Blue, and Lucky Green. These are all bright and brilliant colors that enrich the intelligent look of this device.


It has the following body dimensions 170.5 x 77.6 x 8.3 mm (6.71 x 3.06 x 0.33 in) and a body size of 6.82 inches, 111.7 cm2 (~84.5% screen-to-body ratio). This is one of the selling points for modern devices since the display size and ratio depend on the screen-to-body ratio. This translates to its being lightweight and handy, weighing just 195 g (6.88 oz).

It is built of a Glass front, plastic back, and plastic frame. Materials of build like plastic are susceptible to scratches.

It lacks the usual corning gorilla glass protection that protects the device from scratches and accidental falls. However, there are many phone cases online that can improve the look of your device and also protect your device from scratches. 


It is a Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by). This means it has two sims, one being a Nano sim and another of a double stand-by type. 

The device is a 4G LITE-enabled device, making the sim follow suit in that path. 


It has an IPS LCD, 90Hz, display type with a screen resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~259 ppi density). The IPS LCD, 90Hz, is an improved version of the IPS LCD. There has been some complaint about the IPS LCD, and this is a conscious and dedicated effort to improve the overall display quality from infinix.

It is 6.82 inches, 111.7 cm2 (~84.5% screen-to-body ratio). This large screen type is a selling point for this device, leading to a corresponding increase in display size.


It has internal storage memory and RAM, which are of capacities: 128GB, 4GB RAM, and 128GB 6GB RAM. While we have a lower internal storage spec of 64GB and 4GB RAM for the infinix hot 12 play, they both peak to about 128GB RAM and 6GB RAM.

A port supports this internal memory for slotting an external storage card to augment the memory space.


It has a middling dual camera with a capacity of 13 MP, f/1.8 (wide), AF, 2 MP, and QVGA. While one of its cameras has a 13MP capacity, the other has a 2MP capacity. These two cameras’ capacity is capacity for cameras rated poor; combining both capacities leads to improving imaging quality.

It has a Dual-LED flash, panorama, and HDR to brighten or increase the surrounding light. This is quite impressive at nighttime and improves the overall resolution.

It has a video capacity of 1080p@30fps, which enables the shooting of quality videos. 

The main selfie camera with just 8MP capacity enables a Dual-LED flash and supports video 1080p@30fps. This video capacity is the same as that of the rear dual camera, which means you get the same quality to and fro.


It is built on an OS of Android 11, XOS 10, which is the same as the previous version, but unlike the other variant in its series — the infinix 12, launched on Android 12. We can’t tell why the deviation from infinix 12, so your guess is as good as mine.

The CPU of Octa-core 2.3 GHz also enables the seamless and practical workings of the sensors, like the sensors of the fingerprint, which is mounted at the rear, accelerator, and proximity. It also enables the browser to work efficiently and effectively with the new HTML5 language and other fully integrated web languages.


It is a loudspeaker-enabled device with a dual speaker. It also has a 3.5mm jack that enables you to listen to music while charging.

This feature is mainly found in top-rated devices, with a few breaking away from it. 


It has a solid battery life, with a battery type of Li-Po 5000 mAh, non-removable, that enables fast charging with an 18W wired. This fast charging type is better than the infinix hot 12 play, but the battery is poorer than the infinix hot 12 play with Li-Po 6000 mAh.
