Betting big on the booming Indian smartphone market, Infinix Mobiles, the online smartphone brand from TRANSSION Holdings has launched a mid-range selfie-focused S3 smartphone. With this launch, Infinix brings in its fourth global product series ‘HOT S’ to India. Infinix HOT S3 is currently available in 2 variants ie. 3GB + 32GB at Rs 8,999 and 4GB + 64GB priced at Rs 10,999. The main USP of the product is its 20-megapixel selfie camera with flash and Full View 18:9 display.
Smartphone brands are tapping on the selfie trend in India. Infinix HOT S3 with its 20 MP front camera gives crisp high-resolution photos with perfectly toned selfie images. Users also get to select the range of the flash which gives picture-perfect images in low-light. The HOT S3 comes with a unique feature called Full View selfie mode, which lets you capture the selfies on full-view screen. Not only this, the smartphone lets you take Bokeh shots, which focuses on you and dulls the background. The rear camera is of 13 mega-pixel with f2.0 aperture capable of 1080p videos.
Coming to the display… The Infinix HOT S3 has 18:9 aspect ratio and its 5.65 inches HD screen is fitted with a 5.2-inch phone body. An impressive 81 percent screen to body ratio also features 2.5D curved glass. Inside, the HOT S3 packs a good performance for its price. The HOT S3 runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor on both variants. Although, a brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 would have a cherry on the cake. During the hands-on, the phone felt extremely light despite having a 4000 mah battery.
