Specs revealed for the upcoming Infinix HOT 3

Posted by

Not long ago, Infinix teased an upcoming smartphone through their social media handle – The Infinix HOT 3. This is a new model in the very popular low end HOT series. It’s predecessor, the HOT 2 was part of Google’s Android One project, hence it was launched in many other countries. We can’t say the same for this upcoming device.


  • 5.5 inches 720p display
  • 1.3 GHz MediaTek Quad-core processor
  • Mali400-MP2 GPU.
  • 1 GB/2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB internal storage (expandable with microSD card).
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop with XUI on top.
  • 3G mode (1GB ) and 4G LTE for (2GB version – HOT 3 Pro).
  • 8 MP rear and 2 MP front facing camera with a wide angle lens and soft flash.
  • 3000 mAh battery.

From the specs listed above, you don’t need a seer to tell you that this phone will come in two variants- The Infinix HOT 3 and Infinix HOT 3 Pro. The latter is a very fine upgrade for the Infinix HOT 2 users as we have a better battery rating, bigger screen and 4G LTE support. The 1 GB version is coming around March, while the 2 GB version might hit stores around April.

Speculations are rife that the HOT 3 Pro may carry 13 MP camera at the back, we might also get to see a fine diamond textured back cover. The phone is expected to be priced at approximately $81 (that’s about N20,300).

Infinix claims they will be launching 6 new phones this year!! Same with last year. So we should look forward to see the Infinix Note 3 and the Infinix Zero 4 later in the year. What’s your take?


  1. disappointing that this will be launching with Lollipop, guess it’s safe to say it’s not an Android One device. also besides the 4G/LTE connectivity on the pro variant there’s no real upgrade in terms of display (size or resolution), processor speed or battery capacity if you have the after market battery. and if you’ve updated to Marshmallow it’s a downgrade in OS versions

  2. I knew it was going to come with Lollipop,are they saying we must wait for Marshmallow to be outdated bfore we can njoy it?

  3. They should have kept the screen at 5inch,with this they officially won’t be releasing anything but phablets here on..
