The Selfie-Centric Infinix Hot S Smartphone

Infinix Hot S

The Infinix Hot S is something the Infinix Mobility team is calling a ‘life style’ device. Basically, its features are targeted towards the younger generation whose lives revolve around being connected 24/7 and who LOVE taking pictures and uploading to social media.

Infinix hot S is the very first device from Infinix Mobility to have a fingerprint sensor. It’s described as a lifestyle phone, and it appears the brand has upped its design game.

Infinix Hot S is a premium looking smartphone from Infinix. It was the first smartphone from the company to feature a fingerprint sensor as well as Android 6.0. The Infinix Hot S seems like a reversal of the Infinix philosophy of ‘bigger is better’ as the phone with its 5.2-inch display is the most compact phone the company has built for a while. The Infinix S2 and Infinix S2 Pro are successors of the Hot S.

Infinix Hot S is powered by a 64-bit Kirin 650 SoC. The processor offers 8-cores and is expected to clock at up to 1.5GHz. Two versions of the Hot S X521 will be available; one offering 16GB storage and 2GB of RAM and the other with 32GB storage and 3GB of RAM.

No matter the version you pick, you will be able to extend storage further by up to 128GB using a microSD card. Infinix Hot S runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).

The Infinix Hot S is available in various colors which are Black, Silver, Space gray, Rose Gold, Light blue while there are 2 available models or trims of the Infinix Hot S which are the 16GB model and 32GB model.

Infinix Hot S is the most compact phone from Infinix since the launch of the Hot 2 almost a year ago. Since then the company has launched the beastly 6-inch Infinix Note 2 and the equally massive Infinix Zero 3 and Infinix Hot 3 with 5.5-inch Displays. 

Infinix Hot S looks premium with curves on the edges, metal frame, and is available in rose gold, gold, black, silver, and blue.

Infinix Hot S features a 5.2-inch IPS display with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. If raw specs is anything to go by, a full HD display will give the Hot S one of the best displays from Infinix for a while.

Performance

Infinix Hot S is powered by a 64-bit Kirin 650 SoC. The processor offers 8-cores and is expected to clock at up to 1.5GHz. Two versions of the Hot S X521 will be available; one offering 16GB storage and 2GB of RAM and the other with 32GB storage and 3GB of RAM.

Camera

A somewhat important highlight of this device is its camera. The front facing lens is an 8 MP shooter having its own LED flash light and at the back is the primary camera of the device. This camera is a 13 MP lens accompanied by a dual-LED flash light beneath it for providing illumination in low-lit environments. The same with Infinix Note 3 Camera.
