Infinix Mobility keeps up the competitive mantle in the smartphone scene with the launch of Infinix Hot S4. Infinix Hot S4 is the successor to the Infinix Hot S3 released in 2018. This new smartphone is the most revamped and restructured Hot S smartphone ever released by the OEM. It is the first Infinix smartphone to sport the dewdrop notch and triple rear cameras. More so, the phone features 32MP selfie camera, the highest ever seen on an Infinix device.

Design and Display
Add together the gradient design, waterdrop notch cutout, and an almost edge-to-edge screen, and you have an interesting Infinix Hot S4 on your hands. From the fore, the major elements interrupting the edge-to-edge outlook are the cutout and the chin. Nevertheless, the triple rear back cameras are enticing to any onlooker. Lurking around the camera setup is the fingerprint sensor.
Well, you’ll have to make the most out of the HD+ resolution relayed by the 6.26-inch display. The IPS LCD panel gets the covering of a 2.5D Curved glass for sleeker aesthetics. Gradient editions of Blue and Red are the available colours of the smartphone.
Battery and Camera
It doesn’t matter whether you’re in a power-starved area, the Infinix Hot S4 can keep you company for more than a day. Even when the need to recharge arises, the Fast Charge technology speeds things up.
The photographic department is one of the most interesting aspects of this smartphone. Infinix Mobility introduces an 8MP ultra-wide sensor to its normal choice of wide and depth sensors. The wide (standard) is of 13MP quality while the depth sensor for portraits is a 2MP type.
For poorly lit environs, the Quad-LED flash provides enough illumination for finer photographs. Utilising the efficiency of AI technology, the 32MP front camera emits fabulous images and videos. Additionally, it’s quick to recognize your face during Face Unlock.
Hardware and Software
Running the show from the middle of the park is the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC. Expectations were that this smartphone could follow the Infinix Hot S3X in sporting a Snapdragon SoC.
That takes no points off the preferred chipset because it delivers crisp performance. The 3GB RAM attached to the chip dictates fluid multitasking. Moreover, its huge 32GB storage can be increased to 128GB.
The latest Android 9.0 Pie OS sits in the software department together with the XOS skin. Hence, you have a Smart Bar feature where you can easily access a maximum of three tools and nine apps.
