The device is pretty much what you’ll expect from the Infinix product tree, it looks and feels like a sleeker, more premium Infinix Hot S. Like the Hot S, the device is also covered in plastic with a metal chassis. On the inside, the devices share a lot of similar characteristics as well – a full HD display, (though the Note 3 features a 6-inch IPS display (1920 x 1080 resolution, 367ppi), unlike the Hot S’ 5.2-inch one. The processor is also pretty much the same 64-bit, 1.3GHz octa-core processor (though the Note 3 features liquid cooling tech that’s absent from the Hot S), same 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, expandable to 128GB via microSD.
Even the Finger Print Scanner that debuted on the Hot S, makes its way to the Infinix Note 3 as well, and is located underneath the 13-megapixel rear camera’s LED flash. Speaking of cameras, there’s also a 5-megapixel front camera as well. The hardware runs on the same XOS as well, which is Infinix’s own android skin based off android Marshmallow.
Besides the size and looks, the big difference between both devices is in the battery department, where the Note 3 features a whooping 4500mAH battery, which is over 30% larger than what’s on the Hot S. In addition to a larger battery, the Note 3 also features android marshmallow’s quick charge; which allows the device get a fair amount of use, even with a quick 5-minute charge.
We’re doing a full review which should get to you soon, but in the meantime, here’s the unboxing video and a few photos of the Infinix Note 3 to whet your appetite.
