Infinix Hot S X521 Specs and Price

Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

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

The Design and Display

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.

So a move to 5.2-inch could be a change in direction. And personally, I think it is in the right direction.

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.

The Cameras

Like the Infinix Note 3, the Infinix Hot S has some potential in photography. On the back, you have a 13 megapixels camera with dual LED flash and on the front is an 8 megapixels wide-angle camera with a soft LED flash.

Hardware and Software

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.
