Infinix Hot 9 Price, Expected India launch
Indonesia seems to be among the first countries where Infinix has launched the new Infinix Hot 9. The phone will also be launched in several African countries where Infinix has a sizable presence. As for India, there is a good chance that the phone will officially make it to India. The company has launched almost all of its Hot series of handsets in the country and there is no reason for them to not launch this handset in the country. That being said, the launch could see a delay due to the ongoing coronavirus scare.
