Back in early February this year, Chinese smartphone brand Infinix, which is owned by Transsion Holdings, launched the Hot S3 smartphone in India with a starting price of ₹8999. And now, after more than eight months from then, the company has launched the Infinix Hot S3X in India.
The Infinix Hot S3X, like the Hot S3, is a budget smartphone. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 SoC which is coupled with 3 GB RAM. The smartphone boots up to Android 8.1 Oreo which is layered with Hummingbird XOS 3.3 custom Android skin atop.
The Hot S3X sports a 6.2-inch display on the front that has a resolution of 1500 x 720 pixels. The display also has a notch up top. The back of the smartphone has a shiny, glossy finish that makes it look premium.
Moving on, the Infinix Hot S3X rocks dual camera setup at the back which is placed in top-left corner in vertical orientation. This dual camera setup consists of one 13 MP and one 2 MP camera, both of which are accompanied by a LED flash placed below them. For selfies and video calls, you get a 16 MP single camera on the front which too is accompanied by flash so that you can take relatively brighter photos in low-light conditions.
You can choose the Hot S3X from three different colors – Sandstone Black, Ice Blue, and Tradewinds Gray. The phone also comes packed with a 4000 mAh battery which should take you through a full day on single charge with ease. Oh, and yes, there’s also a fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone for additional security.
