Infinix Hot 2 – Unboxing [Video]

Infinix Hot 2 is the third device to be launched by Infinix Mobility this year. It is the only device which comes with Android 5.1 out of the box, not only that it has a perforated back which provides better grip with one hand use. Also, the Hot 2 comes with a 2,200 mAh battery, which is removable (unlike the previous two devices). That being said, Infinix has confirmed that, they are going to take out a 3,000 mAh battery for it as a separate accessory in the future. Sounds great right? On the hardware front the Hot 2 comes with a 5 inch 720p display and 1.3GHz Quad Core processor, 2GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory. The device currently comes in 3 colors, Gold, White and Black. Two new colors Red and Blue will be available soon, but only for a Limited period. One thing to note though is that the Hot 2 comes in two variants, a 1GB version and a 2GB version, for PKR 9,999 and PKR 11,399 respectively. We were lucky enough to get our hands on the 2GB model and thought we should show you guys what’s in the box. That’s about it, check out the video below and let us know what you think.
