Visually, the Infinix Hot 11s has been updated and now has a nicely glossy back. As it will collect a lot of fingerprints during daily use, we advise you to put the device in a case. However, this will somewhat obscure the beauty of the back. All Infinix Hot 11s colors have a spectacular design on the back. It seems that a lot of work has been done on this issue. The end result is satisfactory - this model is more than recognizable, it is memorable.
On the back panel we see a stylish layout for the main camera. At the top is the 50-megapixel lens with an aperture of ƒ / 1.6. With it you can hope for quality photos even in complete darkness. The lower right is aided by artificial intelligence.
Compared to its predecessor, the Infinix Hot 11s has undergone some tweaks. The IPS screen has shrunk to 6.78 inches, but the resolution has risen to FullHD +. As a result, you have a bright picture with juicy colors and adequate adjustment. Viewing angles are excellent.
The frames around the display contribute to the beautiful appearance of the Infinix Hot 11s. They are thin and even a slightly thicker bottom does not affect the high score.
Infinix Hot 11s is based on the latest for 2021 hardware platform MediaTek Helio G88, which we already know from the other two models in which it first appeared - Xiaomi Redmi 10 and Tecno Camon 18i.
The platform is an improved Helio G85. It has the same architecture, the same cores and frequency, but now it handles the maintenance of the camera modules much better. It consists of 8 computing cores - two ARM Cortex-A75 with a frequency of 2.0 GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 with a frequency of 1.8 GHz. Graphics are entrusted to ARM Mali-G52 2EEMC2.
Since the smartphone is available in one version - with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, you should know that you can expand the latter with a microSD memory card.
Infinix Hot 11s has a triple rear camera, whose main module is 50-megapixel. Another 2-megapixel camera is responsible for creating a bokeh effect, and a third uses artificial intelligence algorithms. The task of the latter is to better define the scenes and thus use the most accurate settings for a perfect shot.
Looking at the main module, we notice that it may be Samsung ISOCELL JN1. By default, it shoots with a resolution of 12.5 MP. Here it is important to note that the manufacturer has not provided an optical stabilizer. At the same time, he once again focuses on night photos that can be taken with his smartphones. With Infinix Hot 11s you will actually make memorable shots in the dark. To do this, use the special Super Night mode. You will have photos with balanced colors, proper processing of light sources and good detail.
The portrait mode also deserves attention. You have the opportunity to shoot using a dye and artificial bokeh effect, but not together.
Video recording with Infinix Hot 11s has a maximum resolution of 2K and a frequency of 30 frames per second. There is digital stabilization, which is more or less up to the task. Among the additional modes we should mention that the smartphone can record videos with artificial bokeh effect and portrait video with embellishment.
As for the selfie camera, it is 8-megapixel and is armed with a flash. There is no autofocus. With it you can record videos with 2K resolution and bokeh and beautification effects are available again.
Infinix Hot 11s has a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. It is irreplaceable and tests show that continuously watching YouTube videos will give you almost 10 hours of battery life. If you include playing heavy games in the workload, this result will be weaker.
In moderate use Infinix Hot 11s offers a decent duration with one charge - up to two days.
Infinix Hot 11s is a good continuation of its predecessor. You will like it with its bright display with juicy colors, 90 Hz refresh rate, affordable price, good performance for it and Type-C port. To these we must add the presence of an NFC module, loud sound and excellent photographic capabilities for this price range.
As a minus we can point out the very slippery back. It has an impressive design, but it may seem risky to many in terms of safety. Of course, it never hurts to put it in a case.
Infinix Hot 11s does not offer top battery life and also supports fast charging with a power of only 18W.
Before you finally settle on this Infinix model, take a look at the Xiaomi Redmi 10 and Realme C25S.
