What’s the Infinix Hot 8 Price in Nigeria?

You may find it a bit tasking to get some configurations of the Infinix Hot 8 in Nigeria, but with enough searching, it shouldn’t be out of reach. We’ve searched ourselves, and here’s how much the phone costs at different e-commerce stores in Nigeria.


The Infinix Hot 8 is now unavailable on Jumia on Konga, no thanks to its age. Where it’s available, here is the Infinix Hot 8 Price in Nigeria.

Infinix Hot 8 64 GB₦50,000

You can get much better deals buying the device on the used market instead of buying a new Hot 8. Not only can you get it for much cheaper when you buy used, but you also solve the availability problem. However, you should note that used smartphones may come with defects and typically don’t look all new and shiny.

Infinix Hot 8 Specifications

The Infinix Hot 8 isn’t the most performant phone on the market by any standards, but that shouldn’t prevent you from scrutinizing what you’re buying. To help you with that, here are the specifications of the Nigerian  Infinix Hot 8.


The Infinix has a gigantic but disappointing 6.52 inches display with a 720×1600 pixels resolution. At 6.5 inches, even an HD screen would look mediocre, but Infinix went even lower, making the screen feel pixelated in day-to-day use.


On the bright side, it’s an IPS LCD, which isn’t the best display technology from 2019 but is also not the worst, and the 81.5% screen-to-body ratio is also something you only see in premium smartphones, making it the only part of the device that feels expensive.


The phone comes in two configurations which we’ll talk about later, but for now, you should know there’s a 2GB and a 4GB RAM variant. Both use the Mediatek Helio A22 processor, but the former uses the weaker MT6761 variant, while the latter uses the MT6762.

While the MT6761 has only four cores running at a 2GHz clock speed, the MT6762 has eight. However, the eight cores on the latter run slightly slower at 1.8GHz. The octa-core option is faster at most tasks and handles multitasking better, as it’s paired with 4GB of RAM.


While the Infinix Hot 8’s processor cannot compare with flagship devices from Samsung and Apple, the battery size begs to differ. Sporting a massive 5000 mAh cell, the only way to see a low battery notification on this device is when you intentionally deplete it.


Despite being a 2019 device, the Infinix Hot 8 features three sensors at the back, all working together to power its camera system. There’s a 13 MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, a 2 MP depth camera, and a QVGA low-light sensor.

Despite having four cameras, the Infinix Hot 8 can only do 1080p at 30fps maximum; that’s worse than the Samsung Galaxy S6, a 2015 smartphone that can shoot 1080p at 60fps and even 4k at 30fps! If you’re buying a phone for its camera, you shouldn’t consider the Hot 8.

RAM/Internal Storage

The Infinix Hot 8 comes in two storage and memory configurations, and they’re so distinct that you start to wonder why they even share the same name. There’s a 2GB RAM variant with 32GB of internal storage and a 4GB RAM model with 64GB of internal storage.

Unsurprisingly, we only recommend the latter, as the former pales in comparison. Apart from the storage and RAM differences, the former uses a weak quad-core processor, while the latter uses an eight-core chip.


You shouldn’t expect any water resistance from your Infinix Hot 8, as the company isn’t making any water resistance claims. Since the device has no IP rating, mistakenly or deliberately dropping the phone in water will cost you a trip to a repairer at best or a bricked smartphone in the worst-case scenario.

Operating System

The Infinix Hot 8 ships with the custom Android 9-based XOS 5.0, an Infinix custom OS skin with most features from Android. Unlike phones from brands like Samsung and Xiaomi, you can’t upgrade to the Android version on your Hot 8. You must buy a newer smartphone if you want a higher Android version.


Like most other budget smartphones on the Nigerian market, the Infinix Hot 8 has a fingerprint scanner on the back for unlocking the phone and signing into apps and services. The scanner works excellently, and if you’re a fan of rear-mounted fingerprint sensors, the Infinix Hot 8 is one of the best budget devices you can get.


The Infinix Hot 8 is a cheap device that looks and feels premium, designed to cater to Nigerians that desire an adorable smartphone but aren’t willing to pay the exorbitant price for a Samsung or Apple flagship device. For around an eighth of the cost of a top-of-the-line Samsung, the Infinix Hot 8 offers a performant device.

Nice work bro. Phone looks good and I like it. I just wish the phone performed better with games as I am a huge gamer. I would like to see a comparison between this phone and the Tecno Camon 12.
