Infinix Hot 9 smartphone on Monday made its debut in Indonesia. The budget smartphone succeeds the Infinix Hot 8 that was launched in 2019 and comes with major upgrades in terms of the processor and the rear cameras. Infinix Hot 9 is further available in Matte Black, Cyan, Violet, and Light Blue colour options and a single storage variant. Since the Infinix Hot 9 is currently available in Indonesia, it is unclear when the company will start rolling out the smartphone on a global scale. We can also expect the latest smartphone by Infinix to come to India, as its predecessor also arrived in the country in September 2019.
