Infinix HOT 3 Unboxing and First impressions

Just last week Infinix added a new phone to its family of Infinix HOT devices by unveiling the Infinix HOT 3. The HOT 3 is an addition to the Infinix HOT 2 that was released last year and which was regarded as a re-mastered version of the old Infinix HOT.

Before this launch we had shared with you some leaks about what to expect and it turns out we were right about our guesses, not about the launch date but about some specifications the phone comes with. That I will be telling you later on during my review.

The phone was available for orders from 29th March and the first 100 people who ordered it between the launch date and 31st March via e-commerce platform Killimall got some treat from Infinix. They got their names specially engraved on the back cover of the HOT 3.

But that aside, I have the Infinix HOT 3 thanks to our good friends at Infinix Mobile and in this article I am just going to give you a small pictorial peek of what you should expect when you get yourself the Infinix HOT 3.

A quick look at the Infinix HOT 3 Specs



Let me first start by giving you a quick overview of the Infinix HOT 3 specs:

  • 5.5 ” HD Capacitative Touchscreen
  • 64-bit 1.3 GHz quad-core processor
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop
  • 4G LTE
  • 1/2GB RAM
  • 16GB internal expandable memory
  • Dual SIM
  • 8MP auto-focus rear camera with LED flash
  • 2MP front-facing camera with Soft Flash
  • 3,000mAh battery with Fast charge



If you are familiar with the other members of the Infinix community then you should not expect the Infinix HOT 3 to come in a catchy or fancy box.  The Smartphone comes packed in a simple box without much designs as one would expect with proper seals as a protective measure.

What’s in the box?

Upon unboxing you are greeted by the sight of the Infinix HOT 3 carefully places at the top on a greed carton cradle. Seeing the phone made me remember the Infinix HOT 2, the design is actually not that different.


To satisfy my curiosity I go further to check what other accessories are in the box. Here I am also greeted by the site of 2 little yellow boxes.



This boxes don’t actually give me much but they they contain a USB cable, charger head, earpiece, the 3,000 mAh battery I mentioned in the specs highlights and of course a paper manual, nothing else, that’s all you have.




So if you choose to get the Infinix HOT 3 that is what you will get. Check more photos below of what you should expect
