Infinix hot 8 price in kenya

Infinix Hot 8 and Infinix Hot 8 Lite is the Infinix’s latest phone in the Kenyan market, here are the full specifications and price in Kenya.

You may not be aware but the phone is finally here in Kenya after being in the global market for over a month now after the announcement.

The past week has seen phone manufactures introducing new gadget into the Kenyan market. It is just yesterday that I broke the news of the Huawei P30 Lite New edition being available in the Kenyan market.

I just bought one to bring you the first impression. Here is what I found out from the two phones. The Infinix hot 8 comes in two variants, The standard variant (Hot 8) and the Lite variant (the Hot 8 Lite).

So what is the difference?  

While the standard variant features the 4G network, the Lite variant does not. It also misses on the triple camera arrangement found at the back of the phone.

Infinix phones are known for their huge batteries and both the ‘Standard’ and ‘Lite’ variants of these phones pack a 5000mAh battery. The other similarity is that they both come in 6.6-inch display.

But is that all? No, the other difference as you can expect is the pricing. While the Lite goes on sale at Ksh9, 999.00, the standard version cost Ksh. 10999.00. See Jumia
