Infinix Hot S X521 has been officially launched by its producer, infinix mobility. One very important and notable feature that comes with it is the most wanted fingerprint sensor which could seem to make it a threat to Tecno’s Phantom 5.

The new Infinix Hot S phone features a fingerprint scanner, sleek design, 13MP rear auto-focus camera and has a full metal body as well as jaw-dropping performance, superb sound quality, and has a 5.2-inch screen display among other thrilling features. The compact 5.2 inch size, all it takes is one hand to manoeuver around your world.

Even in the low light conditions, the 8MP front camera with 1.4 µm ultra pixel technology will also capture hi-res selfies. And for quicker action, the rear camera’s 13MP works to transform every photo into clear and focused shot.


The device comes either with 16 GB or 32 GB storage, expandable up to a whopping 128GB with an SD card. It is the first Infinix phone to boot Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with easy user interface. It comes with 3GB of RAM to make multitasking very easy.

Hot S has an octa-core MediaTek processor which should rock along at impressive speeds of up to 2.2GHz which should give it more muscle for gaming and multi-tasking performance. The phone graphics is handled by a Mali-T860 GPU. It offers a long lasting battery.


Connectivity features of the phone are 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, micro USB 2.0 and A-GPS. Get ready for the ultimate control with Infinix first Fingerprint Identification technology. Just one convenient touch, unlock, answer the calling and shoot a picture all with your own unique fingerprint. Or set your fingers to command special actions waiting for your decision.

The product shares a very great resemblance with the Techno Phantom 5 as it has a full metal body, centralized camera setup with dual LED flash and fingerprint scanner at the bottom.

With this new product by infinix, I personally feel their fans would be extremely impressed but I am very eager to see if Techno fans would be willing to “port” to the other side.

Please note that the infinix Hot S X522 currently sells at N45,500.
