Note: As at when writing this article, this device was only available in India, and we could not get our hands on it here in Nigeria. Which simply means that every images used in this article were all gotten from YouTube.

The Infinix Hot S3 took the first position in almost every aspect, first of all, this is the first device from Infinix to officially feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa-core processor, though the now late Hot 3 once featured a Snapdragon processor in some parts of the world, but that wasn’t made official, and it wasn’t given the kind of attention it required.

Secondly, this is still the first Infinix device to launch with the now popular and most wanted Android 8.1 Oreo Version, and not to forget, it is also the first device from Infinix to come with a screen aspect ratio of 18:9.
