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.

First Impressions

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.
