Infinix Hot S3 Specifications Price in Nigeria UK USA and India
The Infinix Hot S3 is an updated version of the Infinix S2 Pro as earlier seen in 2017, which received positive reviews in Africa and India. The Infinix Hot S3 comes with an 18:9 aspect ration all full display screen like the Tecno Camon CM. The device offers fast overall performance, boasting of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset which is quite not an updated chipset to me but hey its a budget smartphone. It will be the first Infinix smartphone to come with the processor from Qualcomm.
For the first time ever, the Infinix Hot S3 comes with a major reduction in bezels, which the company failed to actualize with the Zero 5. Although, the bezels are quite minimal but yet cannot be compared to smartphones like the Ulefone Power 3 nor the Samsung Galaxy S8. But there is a little reduction in bezels compared to their previous smartphones from the S series.
The 5.7-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen boasts a brilliant HD+ resolution with a much better screen-to-body ratio of around 81%. The pixel per inch density is more than 300, i wouldn’t say am impressed but its their first trial at an 18:9 aspect display so a little credit to Infinix on this one.
Hardware and SoC
The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset for a faster smartphone experience although the chipset is kinda out of date but its the first of it kind for Infinix. Qualcomm chipsets is now becoming a popular trend amongst the Chinese OEMs as seen in the Elephone U Pro.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon chip on the Infinix S3 is an octa-core processor. The processor should reach a speed of 1.4 GHz, for a smooth usage with minimal or no lags at all. In terms of internal storage and RAM, it comes with 32GB and 3GB respectively. Infinix S3 runs on the newer Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out of the box and Infinix’s own XOS 3.0.
When it comes to camera quality, Infinix midrange smartphones are known for capturing stunning photos and the S3 won’t disappoint in this regard. On the back of the device is a 13MP rear shooter coupled with a dual-LED flash i was expecting to see a dual rear camera here to follow up the trend. At the front for Selfies is also a single 20MP selfie camera with a soft dual-LED flash as well.
Infinix S3 is powered by a Non-Removable Li-Ion 4000mAh battery. It’s too early to tell if it has the fast charging feature, but going with their previous smartphones, this is expected.
Other features options include Bluetooth 4.2, OTG support, Wi-Fi, 4G VoLTE, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Sensors on the phone include Ambient Light sensor, Proximity sensor, G-sensor.a
