Infinix Hot S Full Specifications and Price in Kenya


Infinix Hot S X521 is one of the next phones to hit the markets by Infinix Mobility. Infinix boasts of the Infinix Hot S being one of the most appealing phones and that which brings quite good specs. Infinix Hot S isn’t a new name if you have been reading around the internet and it surely will be launching this August this is my hope. 

Infinix Hot S brings on board one of the most advanced security techniques. This is the first Infinix phone to feature fingerprint identification. It is not a new technology yes, some we saw Tecno give birth to Tecno Phantom 5 that’l feature the same fingerprint ID.

Infinix Hot S basically is a phone to think it you need a taste of fingerprint identification and some other cool stuff. Like earlier said this phone will come in two variants just like we saw the Infinix Hot 3 both versions will feature a smaller display just a 5.2 inch screen. 

​Infinix Hot S will offer you a 5.2 inches IPS Full HD screen. To that the display sports a  1080p  screen resolution making it a heavy battery feeder. The screen offers a 424 ppi pixel density. 

Just like earlier mentioned in this and previous posts, Infinix Hot S is in two variants and these can be differentiated by the primary memory and internal memory. And for once I am thanking Infinix Mobility for something I have waited for. One version of the Infinix Hot S features a 16GB ROM and the other spots a 32GB ROM.

To the bit of primary memory that’s is the RAM,  the 32GB version is seen to feature a 3GB RAM whereas the 16GB version has a 2GB RAM. Doesn’t that appeal to one who stands for powerful devices? 

Infinix Hot S will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the new highly customized XOS from Infinix Mobility. The Hot S X521 also is powered by an octa-core CPU that clocks at a frequency of 1.5 GHz, and it is equipped with a MediaTek MTK6753 chipset.

Camera on the phone is give a run for the Tecno Camon C9. The Infinix Hot S features a 13 mega pixels camera that features a Dual LED flashlight. You know the purpose of a flashlight of course. The secondary is an 8MP camera for selfies and video calling. It too takes into account Flashlight for enhanced photography of course.

The phone also has one demeaning feature or specification, it is not that demeaning but putting into consideration that it supports VR kits and also the display is FHD the battery  should have been more. The Infinix Hot S X521 sports a Lithium ion polymer battery with a capacity of 3000mAh. A 1080p screen resolution is not a joke when it comes to power consumption.

The phones (to mean both versions)  are believed to somewhere below $250. Basically that is a budget range you should target. The 16GB version will be going for $180 and the other 32GB/3GB will cost roughly about $200.
