The subtle competition between TECNO and Infinix Mobility is all too well known to observers on the field. Shortly after TECNO released the Camon C9, Infinix has something that is very similar out in the market. The two devices are not similar in terms of looks and physical build, but look beyond the external and anyone can see why pitching the Infinix Hot S versus TECNO Camon C9 is a very interesting proposition.
Both are powered by octa-core Mediatek MT6753 processors clocked at 1.3 GHz supported by Mali-T720 graphics processors. You will also find 2GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage in both. Both are 4G LTE capable. Both have 3,000 mAh capacity batteries.
As for the differences, the Camon C9 has a 5.5-inch display while the Hot S has a 5.2-inch display. While the former has an iris scanner, the latter has a fingerprint scanner.
