The Design and Display

Infinix Hot S is the most compact phone from Infinix since the launch of the Hot 2 almost a year ago. Since then the company has launched the beastly 6-inch Infinix Note 2 and the equally massive Infinix Zero 3 and Infinix Hot 3 with 5.5-inch Displays.

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 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.
