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.
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.
No matter the version you pick, you will be able to extend storage further by up to 128GB using a microSD card. Infinix Hot S runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
Like the Infinix Hot 4 and Note 3, the smartphone sports a fingerprint sensor on the back. This enables you unlock your phone or setup actions. Infinix Hot S comes with a 3000 mAh battery and is expected to offer 4G LTE.
