Infinix Hot 5 Launch: Specs and Everything we know

Less than two months after the launch of the Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 Pro, Infinix Mobility is set to release another smartphone into the Nigeria. The device will be launched in partnership with Jumia.

The phone is to be called the Infinix Hot 5  with model number X559 and according to infinix and it belongs to the product series that delivered one of the best-selling smartphones on Jumia across 15 markets in 2016. after the release of infinix hot 4 and hot 4 pro , users have been waiting for a new update. Infinix Mobility tagged it #MyHotPadi on a facebook post few hours ago, claiming that everyone has one special hot padi as friend and the Hot 5 will be the hottest padi for you.  Do you agree with that? Oh maybe after seeing the specs, you will make your decision.
Just as we now know we would soon have the Infinix Hot 5 and Hot 5 Lite in time to come, we might also have the Hot 5 pro which might differ in one or two specs. Although, I have confirmed that the new smartphone will be launched around the end of this August, specific date is yet to be out, though many fans on social media platforms INCLUDING ME are not happy how Infinix releases phones in quick succession, highlighting that it makes their phones look outdated when it’s still actually a new phone.

Infinix Hot 5 and Hot 5 Lite will have a better Double Flash with clearer image in the dark than the hot 4.

It will also come with Double Microphone, 3 D stereo best performance, and communication. They are both going to run Android 7 nougat out of the box. Well, let’s see the reviews, features and specs of Infinix Hot 5.
