Infinix Hot 5 Lite….. Infinix Hot 5 Lite is a stripped down version of the affordable Infinix Hot 5. Infinix Hot 5 Lite shares most of the features of its brother, but lacks the fingerprint scanner and comes with lower RAM.
Infinix Hot 5 Lite Key Specs & Features
- 5.5-inch Touch Display, 720 x 1280 pixels (267ppi)
- 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6580 CPU with 1GB RAM
- Android 7.0 (Nougat), XOS 2.2
- 16GB Storage with support for memory card up to 32GB
- 8MP Rear Camera and 5MP Front Camera
- 3G and Wi-Fi
- 4000 mAh Battery with Fast Charging
Design and Display
One may not be wrong stating there is nothing extraordinary about the looks of the Infinix Hot 5 Lite. It’s just there, sort of. But a textured rear looks good and should make the device less slippery.
There is still the 5.5-inch display on the front. This is increasingly becoming the norm these days. It offers a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. You may expect decent wide angle viewing here since the Infinix Hot 5 Lite uses an IPS panel.
Camera and Storage
Nothing changes from the Infinix Hot 5 in the camera department. There is an 8 megapixel shooter on the rear and a 5 megapixel snapper on the front. Both promise to serve decent quality, especially with their support for LED flash.
As with its sibling, the Infinix Hot 5 Lite comes with 16GB onboard storage. You can also extend storage with a microSD card.
Performance and OS
Under the hood, the Infinix Hot 5 Lite carries a MediaTek quad-core processor as the Hot 5. The difference in terms of performance will have to do with RAM. The Hot 5 Lite offers just 1 GB, compared to the other’s 2 GB. It runs off Infinix’s own XOS 2.2, a customised version of Android 7.0 Nougat.
Other Specs and Features
You get a high capacity 4,000mAh battery that promises to get things running for many hours on a single charge. This beast is said to offer up to 35 hours of talk time! Plus, there is fast charge technology that gives you hours of talk time in just 5 minutes of charging.
But the fingerprint scanner on the rear of the Hot 5 is missing here. And like the other device, the Infinix Hot 5 Lite does not support 4G LTE. It offers 3G support and other regular wireless connectivity options, such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
