Just after the release of the Hot 9, Infinix Mobility has silently released another smartphone called Hot 9 Play.

The Hot 9 Play comes with features that are quite different from that of its predecessor.

The Hot 9 Play is built around a 6.82-inch HD+ display with a 720 x 1640 pixels resolution. It also features a waterdrop notch which houses the 8MP selfie camera unlike Hot 9 which uses a single 8-megapixel sensor hidden in the hole upfront.
