Infinix has launched the Infinix Hot S3 smartphone in India today. The phone is a low-end device laced with premium features and the name justifies its looks quite impeccably. The phone is a Flipkart exclusive and has been launched at a price of Rs 8,999.
Infinix Hot S3 – design and specs
The device is comfortable to hold, thanks to its ergonomic curves. The buttons on the side of the phone are well built and the power button is differently textured which makes it easier to recognise. The rear panel of the device looks metal but is not so. But we cannot complain about the same since it gives a premium finish to the phone nonetheless.
The bottom part of the Hot S3 carries a single speaker with a micro-USB port and the 3.5mm audio jack sits on the top. The phone comes with a 5.65-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 720 x 1440p. The device carries an aspect ratio of 18:9 and thus, has a supposed bezel-less design. The side bezels on the phone are quite larger than the others. The device runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with 3GB/4GBof RAM and 32GB/64GB of ROM.
The device carries a 20MP selfie snapper with a Dual LED flash and an aperture of f/2.0. The front camera on the device has a 13MP camera sensor with PDAF and Dual LED flash. The aperture of the rear camera lens is f/2.0. The device runs XOS 3.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo and carries a 4000mAh battery. The fingerprint sensor is located beneath the vertical rear camera setup.
