This is unbelievable! Why would Infinix Hot 3 be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset? Infinixmobility has just made one of the greatest change that might affect the sales of their latest flagship phones because the average person prefer the MediaTek (MTK) powered phones. You might be wondering what is so special about MTK devices that i am been paranoid about. OK, Let me why the Qualcomm Snapdragon powered Infinix Hot 3 will be less attractive to the Tech world.
Why MTK Chipset is Important to Techies:
MTK devices are cheap:
MTK made a comeback at the launch of Android-enabled chipset, which has sent the Chinese manufacturers who come up with their own versions of the smartphone, but at the price tags that are in the $ 100 range, more or less. These smartphones and mobile device related products carry MTK chips are paving the way for affordable high-tech gadgets to be available to consumers who can not afford high-end versions.
The emergence of new and better MTK chips that are compatible with the Android operating system is set to revolutionize the tech world again and has maked smartphones affordable and accessible for all to enjoy. If Infinix Hot 3 doesn’t come with MTK chip, I doubt if it will be relatively affordable.
MTK devices are Tweakable:
I’d discovered for a very long time that a lot of people loves MTK devices and the main reason because it’s easier to tweak the phone to suite your need. For example, tweaking of IMEI so as to enjoy free browsing using Glo BIS on Android has been a common trend in Nigeria and many non-MTK smartphone owners would do any thing to get their phone IMEI changed, which is like climbing mount Everest. 😀
IMEI tweaking is also done so has to enjoy free Megabytes give to newly released phones. The 2go MB tweakers enjoy is not left out in this category. So, this really calls for concern.
For a while now a lot of us have been anticipating the release of Infinix Hot 3 which is already available for pre-order on Jumia and Konga. But something seems to be funny. The newly release Infinix Hot 3 video clips shows that it will be running on Snapdragon CPU which a lot of us may not be aware of.
Though rumored specifications have it that the 1GB Ram variant will be powered by a MediaTek Chipset in which we are not really sure of. But the 2G Ram model might likely run on Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU alongside supports for 4G.
It has not been officially confirm but we expect the official specs to confirm or refute this claim after the launch.
It’s better you be aware of the Infinix Hot 3 might be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset to avoid been misled. We shall keep a nab on it. Meanwhile, what do you think?
