This post covers Infinix Hot 5 Lite specifications, features, price in Nigeria, Kenya, where to buy as well as similar phones. Infinix Hot 5 Lite is the smaller version of Infinix Hot 5 hence the tag “lite”. which are currently the latest smartphones from Infinix Mobility as of the time of this publication.
Infinix Hot 5 Lite is an entry level and budget smartphone targeted at those on low budget as the price indicate. Because of this, it lacked some crucial and enticing features. Just as the main Infinix Hot 5, the Hot 5 Lite didn’t also come with 4G network option which is quite discouraging if you ask me.
INFINIX HOT 5 LITE FEATURES
The Hot 5 Lite sports a 5.5 inches screen with HD resolution. It’s display pixel counts at 720 by 1280 pixel leaving it with 264 PPI (Pixels Per-square Inch). There’s no protective glass on the device so a screen guard will come in handy.
It is powered by a quad-core cortex processor and a Mediatek MT6580 chipset, the processor clocks at 1.3 GHz. Support is provided by an on-board 1GB RAM. With such processor, the Hot 5 Lite will deliver seamless performance for ‘normal’ usage.
Android 7.0 Nougat is pre-installed out of the box on the Infinix Hot 5 Lite. The Interface is customized with XOS – the company’s custom OS. XOS is said to provide more interactive experience with innovative features such as custom themes, Multi Account, and Freezer while also decreasing power consumption.
NETWORK & MEMORY
Infinix Hot 5 Lite is a dual SIM phone (micro SIM) with dual standby and has an internal storage space of 16GB. You can expand the space with an SD card to up to 32GB. As mentioned earlier, the phone has no support for 4G network, there might hopefully be an LTE version of the Hot 5 (Just hopefully).
In the camera side, Infinix Hot 5 Lite boasts 8 megapixels camera at the back and a 5 megapixels camera in the front, what’s good about the camera is the presence of LED flash for both the front and back cameras.
Hot 5 Lite carries an impressive 4000 mAh battery in the powerhouse, the battery is touted to provide up to 24 to 35 hours of talk-time and up to a whooping 837 hours of standby time.
APPEARANCE AND OTHERS
Unfortunately, the Hot 5 Lite has no fingerprint scanner, its back cover has a crystal-like pattern that gives the smartphone more fanciful look while also improving phone handling. Available colors of the device includes; Fine Gold, San-stone Black, White, Lemon and Red colors.
