Note 11i and Hot 11 Play are Infinix latest entry smartphones with big batteries

Infinix Note 11i

Without much funfair, Infinix today launched the Note 11i after announcing several variants of the Note 11 series in the past few weeks. This unlike the rest is powered by the Mediatek Helio G85 12nm chipset. Coupled alongside is a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, while the storage is further expandable via microSD card.

The dual SIM slot of the smartphone share the same slot with the microSD, so users can insert all the three at once without having to swap around. The Note 11i has a large 6.95-inch LCD display that only refreshes at 60Hz, although it is quite brilliant because it has a Full HD+ resolution.

The main shooter that takes all the picture is located at the back and it has a 48MP sensor, below it you will also find a 2MP macro and a 2MP depth cameras. Selfie is handled by a 16MP camera that resides inside the punch hole above the display. The whole camera setup is limited to Full HD (1080p) video recording, you may have to put that in mind.

Since the entire body (except the glass front) is made of plastic, there are no waterproof and dustproof ratings of whatsoever, although you do get a pair of stereo speakers that are enhanced by DTS Audio. The usual range of connectivity are present, while it packed a 5000mAh battery behind with 18W fast charging supports.
