Infinix  Mobility continues to make progress by releasing just the right smartphones for fans globally.

In fact, they are up and active to very soon launch their latest Infinix smartphone and add one to the “Hot” series of Infinix smartphones.

The Infinix Hot 5 and Hot 5 Pro will be the brand new addition to the Hot series and both devices feature overwhelming attributes and mouth watering specs.

The Hot 5 succeeds the ‘Hot 4’  which was warmly received by the market as a cheap yet effective smart phone; the same concept born in mind is now being applied into the Infinix Hot5.

The Aim of the Hot series is to provide good quality smartphone standards yet retaining a great level of affordability.

Interestingly, what else does the Hot 5 have to offer? Well let’s take a look.

Release Date:

When it comes to designated release dates; Infinix always comes through.

That being said, Infinix has made sure to keep a low profile and not blurt out any information about the ‘Hot 5’ hence leaving fans a burning curiosity.

Rumor has it that the newest baby to the Hot series will be set out for release possibly at the end of August 2017.

Hopefully, September will see us through with the release of the Hot 5.


Compared to the ‘Hot 4’, similar traits will be visible on the Infinix Hot 5.

For starters, the fingerprint scanner at the back is a feature that will be inherited by the Hot 5.

Although the camera lens will be different as the ‘Hot 5’ is rumored to feature a 13MP back camera with AF and flash.

It is expected for obvious reasons that the camera region would cover more area on the back paneling and we might get to see a decrease in camera protrusion from the surface.

The phone dimension is estimated to be 152*76.4*8.7mm, weighing 175g.

So the Infinix Hot 5 may follow in the same footprint as its predecessor. The Hot 5 pro might be bigger in size.

In terms of build, fans are anticipating a slim and more premium feel than the disappointing plastic build we got to experience on the Hot 4.

We’re expecting a tinge of metal preferably aluminum grooves and paneling surrounding the top & bottom edges of the phone running down through the volume rocker and power button region to encase the phone in metal; as seen on the ‘Hot S’.


Given that the Hot 4 packed a 720p (1280*720) HD resolution, one would expect the Hot 5 display specs to be bumped up a notch higher.

Ideally 1080p (1920*1080) full HD resolution is what one would quite expect in the Hot 5.

Boasting a 5.5” SUPER AMOLED display it can be said that Infinix is set out to improve the Hot 4’s predecessor by incorporating such features seen on high-end flagship devices such as Samsung.


Infinix Hot 5 will be packing the latest android OS; Android 7.0 Nougat accompanied by Infinix’s “XOS”.

Battery Life

The Hot 5 is coming with a non-removable 4000mAh battery capable of lasting two days until recharge during normal usage and up to five days in Power Save mode.

The battery incorporates Infinix Fast-Charge Technology; therefore charging the phone will be quicker than ever.


Outstandingly, Infinix decided to turn the tables by installing a 13MP rear-camera with AF & Flash yet tending to the selfie lovers with the 5MP front-camera with flash.

Users are given a variety of user-friendly camera settings with the introduction of a newer more refined camera app – Possibly due to Android 7.0 Nougat.


Running an Octa-core Helio processor, the ‘Hot 5’ delivers on performance with clock speeds of 2.0 making multitasking and running high-end apps seem like nothing.

Infinix might continue their relationship with Mediatek Processors.

The Infinix Hot 5 and Hot 5 Pro are expected to run on Helios processor alongside Mali GPU, which will be an octa-core 1.4 GHz processor.

We expect a storage of 32GB for both the Hot 5 & Pro version. The RAM will have two variants, the 2GB on the Hot 5 and the 3GB variant for the Pro.

There is a dedicated expandable SD card slot which will be expandable up to 128 GB.

Special Features

The ‘Hot 5’ comes with a spectacular finger print detector & 4G connectivity aimed at improving the general use of the phone for its user in our technological era.

Both phones are coming packed with all basic sensors like Accelerometer, Proximity and Light Sensors.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the ‘Hot 5’ will indeed succeed the ‘Hot 4’ by a long shot.

Infinix is vigorously competing in the East African market against the likes of Tecno, Wiko & Huawei.

Because of this, Infinix will constantly improve their phones with each release just to say on top.

With the majority of people searching for cheaper alternative devices with premium qualities, Infinix cannot afford to leave that gap open and will deliver quality.
