Photo Announcement. Infinix Hot 20S - Free Fire? And why is it so cheap?

I've found on the Thai section of the Infinix website a smartphone called Infinix Hot 20S Free Fire.

If anyone doesn't know, Free Fire is a battle royale game.

Special versions of smartphones dedicated to some kind of toy have not surprised anyone for a long time. The strange thing is that the smartphone, which would be called simply Infinix Hot 20S, is not on the official website. Not for Thailand, not for any other country.

On the other hand, if you search through the Thai online stores there, you will find out that Shopee (and it seems to be the largest there) sells justwhich is simply called Infinix Hot 20S. And there is no mention of Free Fire there.

Okay, on to the stats.

The chipset is called MediaTek Helio G96. Those. there is no support for 5G networks, and in AnTuTu we are waiting for 300-350 thousand points. Not very much, not very little. It will do.

Memory. This is the modern gold standard. 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Plus there is support for memory cards.

The screen is hefty, 6.78" (109 cm²). Refresh rate up to 120 Hz is declared. The resolution is good, high - 1080x2460 (396 ppi).

The battery is normal, 5000 mAh. Charging speed slightly increased - 18Tue

The set of cameras is quite simple - 8 MP in the front, 50 + 2 + 2 MP in the back.

There is Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi and a fingerprint scanner. No NFC module.

What surprised me was the price. 5190 baht (₽8390, $139). At first I even decided that my currency converter built into the site was acting up. But, it seems, no. Those. it is clear that the smartphone is not a monster at all. But still somehow very cheap.

There are no reviews in understandable languages ​​yet. But if you suddenly speak Thai...
