The Infinix Hot 5 Lite is the toned down version of the Infinix Hot 5 smartphone. The device was launched alongside its big brother (the Hot 5) on the 28th of August. The PRO version of the Infinix Note 4 Pro was also launched the same day in Kenya.
The Infinix Hot 5 Lite is quite similar to the Infinix Hot 5 smartphone but there surely exists some differences. Let’s go through the main features of the Hot 5 Lite before segueing to the full specifications.
DESIGN & DISPLAY
Design-wise, the Infinix Hot 5 Lite shares the same appearance, size, dimensions and even weighs the same as the Infinix Hot 5. However, there’s a design distinction; as there is always is between any two device.
The design distinction is the absence of the fingerprint scanner on the Infinix Hot 5 rear. The logo and camera position however remains the same as the Hot 5’s.
The Hot 5 Lite also had the same 5.5 inch IPS HD screen as the Hot 5.
PROCESSOR AND STORAGE
The same MediaTek MT6580 chipset found on the Hot 5 also governs the activities of this device. The processor has four cores (Quad-core) and runs on the same 1.3 GHz as its older sibling – the Infinix Hot 5.
To differentiate the Infinix Hot 5 Lite from the Hot 5 and as a smaller version that it is, the device comes with a reduced RAM size – 1 GB. The 16 GB internal storage (ROM) however remains the same.
The cameras? Same old, same old. 8 megapixels on the rear and 5 megapixels on selfie duties up front. Both are supported by LED flash lights.
The Infinix Hot 5 Lite maintains the same 4,000 mAh non-removable battery pack as used on the Hot 5. The Infinix Hot 5 Lite also comes with the Quick charge feature and on full charge, the battery lasts up to 48 hours (2 days).
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
