Infinix launches HOT S3X smartphone in India, company’s first AI-selfie smartphone with a notch on the top

Infinix has just launched its latest budget smartphone, the Infinix HOT S3X. The successor to the Infinix HOT S3, the S3X comes in a beautiful design and decent hardware.

The highlight of the HOT S3X is its AI-powered 13MP+2MP dual camera setup on the back alongside a 16MP AI selfie camera up front. The device is also the company’s first smartphone to feature the in-trend notch at the top on a 6.2-inch HD+ display.

Speaking about the selfie camera, the HOT S3X makes use of a 4-in-1 pixel technology. It basically merges 4 pixels into one pixel, which helps in capturing more light for better quality selfies. This means better selfies regardless of the lighting conditions. It also makes use of AI beauty algorithm that scans up to 255 facial points to create a more detailed and beautiful selfie.

As for the hardware under the hood, the HOT S3X packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC. It also packs in 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Couple that with a huge 4,000mAh battery and you have with yourself a great performer that should also last the day. On the software front, the HOT S3X runs Android 8.1 Oreo with the company’s XOS v3.3 custom skin on top.

“With an aim to improve on customer experience and take the notch game higher, we are introducing today a bigger, better and smarter version of the series. HOT S3X carries on the legacy of Best Selfie Camera with 16 MP AI-powered selfie camera with large 4-in-1-pixel technology. Other key improvements include 13+2 Dual Rear camera with enhanced Glass back design & 6.2” HD+ screen Super Full View notch display, which makes it one of the best selfie centric all-rounder phone in sub 10k category,” said Mr. Anish Kapoor, CEO, Infinix India.
