The Infinix Hot S is one of the most beautiful smartphones from the company that I have seen. The Phone was launched in Nigeria a few weeks ago and it has finally landed in Kenya. You can get the Infinix Hot S as from today in a Safaricom shops and a few Infinix branded shops in the country. You can also find the list of shops where you can get the Infinix Hot S here.
As mentioned above, the phone is available in offline shops at the moment and this means that you will not be able to find it on Jumia. Given that the phone is available in offline shops, price may vary but Infinix says that even with that the price will range between Ksh 16,000-18,000. This is a very competitive price if you consider the specs it comes with.
The Hot S was the first smartphone from Infinix to be launched with the company’s new OS, XOS, and a fingerprint scanner. This was seen as an aggressive move by the company to capture new customers who want some of the best features on their smartphones but are not willing to break the bank to do that. The phone comes into the country a few weeks after the company announced its latest phablet, the Note 3 which we have already reviewed. It seems like Infinix has been unveiling a new smartphone every other month and this is just the latest one.

Back to the Hot S, Infinix will be using it to target the young people with its sleek design. Having seen the phone, I can tell you that it looks really good and that is why the company is using the tagline ‘All eyes on me’ when marketing it. The Hot S is one of those smartphones that you will want to get the very first time you see, it has a small and beautiful size that puts other devices within this price range at shame.
Besides the looks, Infinix will also be banking on the 8MP front facing camera to market this phone to selfies fanatics. This 8MP front camera is accompanied by a 13MP camera at the back with dual LED flash. We are yet to test out these cameras but be sure we will do that in the full review that will be up very soon.
