Infinix Mobile has quietly released the Infinix Hot 30 Play in the Philippines, just in time for the brand’s 5.5 online sale event.

The low-cost, gaming-focused smartphone is now available on the brand’s official Lazada and Shopee stores, with the discounted retail price set at P5,499 (around $100 converted) for the lone configuration with 8GB of physical RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Its regular price is P6,499 ($118). In the Philippines, the Infinix Hot 30 Play is listed in Black, White, and Purple colors.

Something noteworthy: The phone’s memory config is relatively generous for a budget option, and it can use up to 8GB of virtual RAM for a total of 16GB RAM at your disposal. That’s probably a record for a sub-P6,000 ($108) handset.

The successor to the Hot 20 Play also upgrades its rear camera to a 16-megapixel unit — still accompanied by a secondary AI lens for portrait shots. Elsewhere, you get an 8-megapixel camera in a punch-hole cutout for selfies.

The Infinix Hot 30 Play retains its predecessor’s large 6.82-inch HD+ display coupled with a 90Hz refresh rate and massive 6,000mAh battery that can charge up to 18 watts.

The smartphone is still powered by a MediaTek Helio G37 4G chipset with eight Cortex-A53 cores and PowerVR GE8320 graphics. Its fingerprint sensor has been moved to the side of the device, though, from the back panel on the previous model.
