Infinix Hot 10 Play Overview
Infinix Hot 10 Play comes with a similar rear panel to that of the Infinix Hot 10. It has a rectangular camera module with a dual-camera setup and quad flash. The fingerprint sensor is provided on the rear itself.
The rear plastic panel has a glossy finish with striking patterns and the phone uses a plastic frame too. On the front, it has a drop notch design.
Infinix Hot 10 Play comes with a 6.82 inches HD+ display. It is an IPS display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1640 pixels.
The IPS panel boasts an 82.4% screen-to-body ratio with an aspect ratio of 20.5:9.
Interms of processing power, Hot 10 Play is rocking a MediaTek Helio G25 chipset. It’s a 12nm chipset with Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and PowerVR GE8320 (650 MHz) GPU.
The Hot 10 Play comes in 2GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB memory options, and it also has a microSD card slot for storage expansion by up to 512GB.
Mediatek Helio G25 looks very similar to the Mediatek Helio P35 processor. It is slightly underclocked at 2.0 GHz compared to P35 which is clocked at 2.3 GHz. However, both of the chipsets use PowerVR GE8320 GPU clocked at 650 MHz. Redmi 9A is one of the recent phones to rock the same chipset.
G25 is a small upgrade from the Helio A22 used in Hot 9 Play.
Hot 10 Play has a dual-camera setup with a 13MP primary sensor and a secondary AI lens which is probably a depth sensor. The camera setup also features a quad flash system.
On the front, it comes with an 8MP front camera. Both front and rear camera can record up to 1080p videos at 30fps.
Battery & OS
Powering the Hot 10 Play is a 6000 mAh battery. It doesn’t get USB Type-C as it uses micro USB charging.
It uses a 10W charger and it has an ultra power mode provided by Marathon Tech which adds 19 hours of battery life when the cell is at 5% charge.
Furthermore, it runs on XOS 7.0 on top of Android 10 (Go Edition).

Currently, Hot 10 Play is available in 2GB/32GB configuration in Pakistan via Xpark at PKR 16,999 (12,338 NPR) and will go on sale in the Philippines starting January 23rd for PHP 4,290 through Lazada.
|Infinix Mobile||Expected Price in Nepal|
|Infinix Hote 10 Play||Rs. 13000|
Given the price of Hot 9 Play, we can expect Infinix Hot 10 Play price in Nepal to start at Rs. 13,000 for the 2GB/32GB variant.
Hot 10 Play is a successor to the Hot 9 Play and Hot 9 Play was a pretty good smartphone. It doesn’t look like a big upgrade as the only major change is the use of the G25 chipset. However, it should prove to be a good budget phone if priced right in Nepal.
