Infinix Mobility has launched the Infinix S3 as its first smartphone for the year 2018. The S3 is a continuation of the HOT S series which had the Infinix S2 and Infinix S2 Pro as its last additions.
The Infinix S3 has a lot of features that are not necessarily new but surely exciting.
Let’s see pictures and experience what this smartphone feels like.
- Android 8.0 Oreo
- 5.7 ” Infinity Display Screen
- 430 Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB internal expandable memory
- Dual SIM capability; Nano SIM cards.
- 14 MP primary camera with flash
- 20 MP front-facing (selfie) low-light camera with flash
- 4,000mAh non-removable battery
- Fingerprint Scanner
- Face ID
- 4G LTE
The Infinix S3 is in a lime green rectangular cardboard box encased in a shrink wrap which doubles as its only tamper-proof seal.
The main engraved box is housing a smaller one that contains the device and its accessories.
There is no extra extra in accessories for this one; everything is regular.
- 1 Infinx S3
- 1 Charger head
- 1 USB cord
- 1 Earpiece
- 1 Ejector pin
- 1 Screen protector

Customer service card, screen protector and user manual
Power button is under the volume rocker on the right side of the S3
A new and improved SIM tray is on the left
It has three spaces; two nano SIM slots and one to comfortably accommodate a memory card by itself.
Earphone jack is at the top,
Microphone, USB port and speaker grilles are arranged underneath in that order
After the camera flash and call speaker, a 20 MP selfie camera is at the top front facing part of the phone
The back camera is in a corner above and adjacent to a fingerprint scanner behind the S3
Official price of the Infinix S3 is ₦62,200, but it is not yet available in the market. It goes on sale in 2 weeks but, in the meantime, can be pre-ordered on SLOT now.
At first sight, the Infinix S3 is a lightweight beauty to behold. It looks and feels like one of those smartphones that care was put into their design process.
Face ID, Android 8.0, great battery, sonic processors, and the new enhanced SIM tray. You can’t help loving everything about the S3.
This ‘golden boy’ has some seeming pitfalls that I will not want to rush into conclusions about until a thorough review. But for now, it looks like a good buy in itself.
