The Infinix Hot S is already listed on Jumia

The first phone with a fingerprint scanner from Infinix is almost official

The Infinix Hot S whose launch we’ve been speculating and anticipating for quite some time now, is finally available on Jumia Nigeria. Meaning it will be available everywhere soon. So Kenyans will be getting it maybe next week.

The price listed on is 45500 naira, which by the current exchange rates, is approximately Ksh. 15000. I am not sure that’s the real price or a pre-order reserve. If the phone is Ksh. 15000 only, then this will be big. I thought it would cost somewhere between 18 and 20k.

It looks like Infinix will be pushing this phone as a camera phone with not only good physical lenses, but also a good software camera experience including video editing templates.

The Specs have been confirmed as:

  • 5.2 inches full HD Display
  • 2GB RAM with 16GB internal storage (there’s a 3GB/32GB version)
  • A 1.5Ghz Octa Core processor
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow with XOS
  • 3000mAh battery
  • 13MP back camera
  • 8MP front camera – the front camera looks serious
  • Fingerprint scanner

There’s nothing said on the VR Kit expected.

Let’s wait and see when the phone launches in Kenya, the price, and what it brings.

What do you think?

If you’re in Nigeria, go ahead and buy the phone now.



  1. Comment: According to the Jumia Nigeria Link the display is HD not full HD, I also feel the price is just right for 2GB/16GB. Maybe the 3GB/32Gb will be priced 18k
