It’s been about eight months since Infinix made a big splash with its Android One-powered Infinix Hot 2.
At the time, Hot 2 was simply the darn best phone someone on a budget could buy. Eight months later, Infinix is coming out – guns blazing – with its Infinix Hot 3 – x554.
Although not powered by Android One like its predecessor, it’s the most beautiful budget phone I have seen in a while. And that’s not just going by the over-filtered promotional images on the Infinix home page.
Thanks to our friends at TechCabal, I have had a pretty good look at what Infinix just dropped on our hands.
Check out their unboxing video.
The Infinix Hot 3 features simple, yet elegant chamfered edges that we’ve only come to associate with high-end flagships. The new Galaxy S7 pulled it off nicely.
The Infinix Hot 3 also packs a 5.5″ HD screen real estate with a 3,000 mAh battery that supports OTG reverse charging.
The full specs.
– Android 5.1 Lollipop
– 5.5 ” HD Capacitive Touchscreen
– 64-bit 1.3 GHz quad-core processor
– 4G LTE
– 1/2GB RAM
– 16GB expandable internal memory
– Dual SIM capability
– 8MP auto-focus rear camera with LED flash
– 2MP front-facing camera with Soft Flash
– 3,000mAh battery with Fast charge
– OTG support and ability to charge other phones.
Infinix is also saying the Hot 3 – x554 takes great selfies. “Selfie with soft flash makes life colorful,” is how they are promoting it.
With only 2MP for the front camera, it’s hard to see how the Infinix Hot 3 can deliver on the selfie promise. I don’t imagine it can hold a candle to the Galaxy S6 that has an insane wide-angle selfie feature.
We should get our hands on this phone soon and will give you a full review. But, until then, we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
Buy the Infinix Hot 3 – x554 on Vconnect
And here is the skinny. VConnect has the lowest price for the Infinix Hot 3 – x554 on the market right now at N25,990.
If you ask me, this phone looks like a winner. Those specs are not exactly impressive, but they are a bargain at the price for which the Infinix Hot 3 is selling. If you already use this phone, let’s know how you are finding it in the comments.
