Infinix Hot 10i appears on Google Play Console with key specs and front render

Infinix is expected to launch the Infinix Note 10 series very soon, as per multiple certifications. It looks like the brand will also announce an entry-level device called Infinix Hot 10i in the coming days. This phone has appeared on Google Play Console revealing its primary specifications.

Infinix Hot series of smartphones are similar to Xiaomi’s Redmi number series. These handsets offer the best bang for the buck in the markets they are sold. They are popular in Africa where Xiaomi and realme do not have much presence.

The upcoming Infinix Note 10i with model number X658B will be no exception. According to the device’s Google Play Console listing, it will flaunt an HD+ display with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels, 320 DPI, and a centered punch-hole at the top for the selfie camera (as per front render).

Being an entry-level smartphone, the handset will be powered by a MediaTek Helio A20 SoC coupled with 2GB RAM. But thankfully, it will run Android 11 out of the box. Since all three Transsion brands (TECNO, Infinix, itel) are not known for providing proper software support, it is a plus point for this device to come with the latest Android version available.

Unfortunately, nothing else is known about the Infinix Note 10i apart from the above-mentioned specifics. But we expect to learn more about it before its official announcement sometime later in the coming days.

NECO reschedules ongoing SSCE Examinations

The National Examinations Council (NECO) has rescheduled some of its papers due to the current crisis across the country.

In a statement issued by the Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani, the affected papers which were supposed to be written from Thursday 22 October 2020, Friday 23 October 2020 and Saturday 24 October 2020 are now scheduled for 17th, 18th and 19th November 2020.

The Examination Body said that it was constrained by circumstances beyond its control to reschedule the papers.

“These changes were due to the security challenges, which led to the imposition of curfew and closure of schools by some state governments, in order to safeguard lives and properties.

” In the circumstances, it has become difficult for the Council to move examination materials across the country.

“The Council prays that the Examinations will continue on Tuesday 27 October 2020, all things being equal, with the papers as originally scheduled in the examination time table.”
