When Infinix first unveiled the Hot 10S globally in April 2021, the latest addition to the Hot 10 portfolio made waves worldwide as an accessible gaming smartphone.

With over 90% of Filipino internet users playing mobile games on their smartphones, the Infinix Hot 10S smartphone generated a lot of buzz with its MediaTek Helio G85 chipset, its stunning ultra-smooth 90Hz display, its 48MP triple camera with Super Nightscape imaging, and its long-lasting 6000 mAh battery – a unique combination of specs usually found in more expensive gaming devices.  In the Philippines, it will be available on Shopee starting June 15, 2021 in two capacities – 4GB+64GB for Php5,990 and 6GB+128GB for Php6,990 – making it the smartphone with the most powerful specs under Php7,000. Underscoring its position as today’s best budget gaming phone for Filipinos, the HOT 10S will also available for early birds for as much as P500 off from June 15-18 as part of its Super Brand Days on Shopee, bringing the price to only P5,490 (4GB+64GB variant) and P6,490 (6GB+128GB variant).

Besides the specs of the Hot 10S, here are three more reasons why mobile gamers in the Philippines are stoked about Infinix.

1. Its line-up of devices positions Infinix as a strong contender in the Philippines’ dynamic mobile landscape. 

Infinix hit the ground running when it re-entered the Philippine market in the last half of 2020 by introducing various models in its affordable gaming HOT series, its gaming flagship NOTE series, and its innovative and design-driven ZERO series, whose powerful specs and aggressive pricing disrupted their respective categories. In only a few months, Infinix was already among the top five best-selling smartphone brands in the country’s leading online stores and is now in demand in brick-and-mortar stores.  

2. Infinix is investing in the gaming community just as it is reaching an inflection point. 

The COVID-19 crisis drove millions of Filipinos stuck at home to turn to mobile games to cope with the mental and emotional toll of the most extended and strictest lockdown in the world. They also turned to gamers and live streamers for gameplay inspiration and entertainment. The past year saw mobile gaming reach an inflection point and evolve from a niche pastime into a more mainstream activity, backed by a dynamic industry and robust ecosystem that managed to thrive even in the middle of a pandemic. Infinix makes its presence felt in the Philippines by investing in the Philippine gaming community. It has tapped Bianca “Biancake” Yao, one of the country’s most loved gaming personalities, to be its Chief Gaming Officer to connect with gamers across the country. It is also launching the Infinix Fans League (TBC), a series of virtual show-matches led by Yao and top talents in the local gaming scene to play mobile games with lucky Infinix Fans. The show matches will be announced on the Facebook pages of Infinix Philippines, Yao’s, and her guest gamers’.

3. Infinix is expanding its nationwide presence.

While Infinix is determined to impact e-commerce substantially, it is also setting up physical stores and partnering with gadget retailers to have more sales channels. It is available in 3,000 stores all over the Philippines, with 1000 more branches to open in 2021.
