The Infinix Smart 3 went on sale in Kenya last week and is currently available in retail stores for Ksh 7,999. You can get the Infinix Smart 3 in Kenya through Infinixmall and through Infinix retail outlets across the country. The Infinix Smart is the company’s series of affordable device available for Ksh 10,000 or less.
The Infinix Smart 3 is the successor to the Smart 2 from last year. The company is trying to use it to capture this market segment that is not dominated by a single smartphone brand. This is a very important market segment as it is one of the biggest in Kenya and consists mostly of first time smartphone buyers who can get hooked to a specific brand if they like it.
The Smart 3 is an Android Go device, what this means is it comes with a version of Android that is tweaked to work well with entry level hardware. With this, users can expect decent performance, something that cannot be said about other entry level smartphones within the same price. There are other Android Go smartphones within this price and it is always a good thing to see competition as that means the customers are the ones who end up winning.
Below are some of the key specifications of the Infinix Smart 3.
