Infinix HOT 40 Pro vs. realme C67: Which 7K smartphone you should get?

Infinix or realme? Both offer a ton of features but each caters to specific needs, and we highlighted them here.

Infinix HOT 40 Pro and realme C67 are the newest models launched in the budget-friendly segment. These two have style, power, and storage for daily needs. But which one suits you better, especially your wallet?

Display and Aesthetics

If you remove the final touches on these phones, they will definitely look like twins. The Infinix HOT 40 Pro and realme C67 feature a large display panel with a punch hole cutout for the selfie camera. They even have the same big chin when you light up the display.

However, the placement of their rear cameras is different. The Infinix HOT 40 Pro has a squarish camera island with three circular camera holes. The realme C67, on the other hand, has a capsule camera island with two circular camera holes.

The realme C67 appeals to those who want a neater and stylish finish, but Infinix HOT 40 Pro can steal the show with its higher refresh rate of 120Hz. This matters when playing games with 120 FPS support.

Along with a massive display and punch hole cutout, both phones include a dynamic bar. It’s called Magic Ring on Infinix HOT 40 Pro while Mini Capsule on realme C67. We prefer realme’s version because the Mini Capsule works on music apps like Spotify. You can use it to press the back and next buttons during music playback. 

Raw Performance

Another major difference between Infinix HOT 40 Pro and realme C67 is their processors. The former is powered by MediaTek Helio G99 and the latter is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 685.

Infinix HOT 40 Pro and realme C67 can run games but neither can handle very demanding titles, such as Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail. 

Games like PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile, and Mobile Legends Bang Bang can run smoothly on both phones, provided you choose the best graphics settings and FPS.

Browsing and streaming are easy peasy for these devices. They have enough processing power for almost everything you’ll do online.

Storage Capacity

It’s expected that users will download lots of apps and games once they get their hands on either phone. Luckily, both handsets have big storage space of up to 256GB, which is expandable via microSD card.

Multitasking won’t be a real issue because Infinix HOT 40 Pro and realme C67 are equipped with 8GB RAM, also expandable via dynamic memory expansion. If this feature is crucial to you, Infinix HOT 40 Pro wins with its up to 16GB RAM expansion, higher than up to 8GB on realme C67.

Camera Capabilities

Keep in mind that both phones are entry-level devices, so expect their cameras to fit the segment. Still, both Infinix HOT 40 Pro and realme C67 sport a 108MP main rear camera sensor.

On Infinix HOT 40 Pro, the main sensor can capture details with 0.64-micron pixels, which help reduce detail loss when cropping images. The sensor is accompanied by a 2MP macro lens for close-ups and 0.08MP auxiliary lens for AI assistance. The selfie camera is a 32MP lens.

On realme C67, the main sensor comes with 3x in-sensor zoom, 3x Portrait mode, and EIS or electronic image stabilization to combat shakes when shooting videos. The sensor is paired with a 2MP depth lens for Portrait shots and other stylish shots. Make masterpieces with street photography filters as well. An 8MP front-facing lens handles selfies.

Battery and Charging

Camera and performance won’t matter if the phone has a squishy battery and must charge more than once a day. The good thing is both Infinix HOT 40 Pro and realme C67 are packed with tanky battery units.

The Infinix HOT 40 Pro is powered by a 5000mAh battery with 33W fast charging. The realme C67 is also powered by a 5000mAh battery with 33W SUPERVOOC fast-charging technology. 

In theory, these two can easily charge up to 75% in about 30 minutes. But expect the charging speed to go slow after that as a way of protecting the battery.
