The Infinix Hot S (X521) Has Been Launched in Nigeria; No News of When We Will Get It in Kenya

Infinix Hot S

The Infinix Hot S has finally been launched in Nigeria, this is the latest series from the company that features a solid metallic build. The Hot S comes with some decent specifications and stands out as being the first smartphone from the Infinix to come with the company’s new customized OS, XOS.

The Infinix Hot S is currently available on Jumia Nigeria for 45,500 Naira, this translates to about Ksh 15,000 with the current exchange rates. This is the price for the 2GB variant and is a reasonable one when you consider the specs the phone comes with. At the moment, the Hot S is available in Nigeria, it is not clear when we will be getting it in Kenya. Production issues are to blame for the delayed launch in other countries. In Kenya, Infinix is getting ready to launch the Note 3 which we will be seeing in the country in mid-August.
