Infinix Hot S3 was finally unveiled in Nigeria today after it came out like a month ago in India and it’s a phone all selfie lovers should like. During the unveiling presentation in India, one of the slides read the sentence “In India, out of 10 pictures taken with a mobile phone, six are selfies.” I believe this statement could pass as a general one and not in India alone.
The Hot S3 comes with a massive 20MP front camera with dual LED Flash and a 13MP rear camera with dual LED Flash as well. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo OS out-of-the-box and comes in two variants – 3GB/4GB RAM with 32GB/64GB internal memory (only the 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM variant is available in Nigeria). Just like the TECNO Camon CM with thin or no bezels and an 18:9 full view display, the Hots S3 spots the same design as well.
