Infinix Hot 3 4G version with 2GB RAM

The Infinix Hot 3 4G variant comes just a few weeks after the Infinix Hot 3 3G version and is reminiscent of the Infinix Note 2 X600 which also came in 2 versions.

The Infinix Hot 3 launched some weeks back in Kenya to the delight of many people looking for cheap but well spec’d phones. And I know very many people who’ve bought the device. They won’t be very happy to hear of a new version with extra RAM and LTE support.

You will remember that very early in the year I stated that the Hot 3 will come in two variants. Those were rumours. Only now are they confirmed.

Infinix is promising a better version of the Infinix Hot 3 to launch on 30th May. It will feature

  • a new octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 processor (for the LTE support),
  • 2GB RAM,
  • 3000mAh battery and
  • will still run Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.

I have been using the Infinix Hot 3 for sometime now and the thing I hate most is how it can hang while using it. Sometimes everything is fine and then all of a sudden things become so slow that even receiving a call becomes an issue. Whether it is the 1GB RAM or the processor, I cannot tell. But this 2GB variant is a much needed upgrade.

The new variants price will be, expectedly, more expensive than the earlier model. Estimated to cost between 11k and 13k.

My only issue with the new expected variant is that it still runs Android 5.1. What I expect though is that Infinix will manage to update the device (and all their other phones especially the Zero series) with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Infinix, I thought, always updates their phones. What happened?

You can read my full review of the Infinix Hot 3 here.  I also wrote a post where I called it the best priced Android smartphone.

Will the Infinix Hot 3 with 2GB RAM be the new trend? Yes I think so. People will now, I think and hope, stop carrying the heavy Infinix Note 2 and opt for this one.

What do you think?
