The two Hot 5 devices have very similar specs with just two differences; RAM capacity and availability of fingerprint scanner.

With the release of Infinix Hot 5 and Hot 5 Lite, Infinix is obviously turning more attention to the low-end market, the Hot 5 was meant to succeed the Infinix Hot 4 and have more improved specifications.

But the only major improvement in the new Infinix Hot 5 is the upgraded Android version.

Infinix Hot 5 smartphone was released in August 2017. The touchscreen smartphone is a dual SIM phone with a plastic design measuring 154.8 x 77.7 x 8.35 mm and weighs 168 grams.

What looks likely to give it an extra boost is the provision of 2 GB of RAM. Infinix Hot 5 boots version 2.2 of its maker’s XOS software, which runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.

The Infinix Hot 5 is available in various colors which are Fine Gold, San-stone Black, White, Lemon and Red while there is only one available model of the Infinix Hot 5 which is the 16GB model.
