Yesterday, Infinix officially unveiled the successor to the S3. Of course, the device had a couple of upgrades that could get you feeling this way, especially when you consider the price tag:

Now this is a hands-on, so it wouldn’t be as in-depth as an unboxing or a review article (stay tuned for that):
But as far as the build goes, this comes with a dual 2.5D glass that is enclosed in a glossy body.
Surprisingly, it doesn’t feel heavy at all, as a matter of fact, I can say that this is a very light device.
Now, you get a 6.2HD+ tear drop display, the first from Infinix, and a quick look at the settings shows that you can hide it
One thing I noticed with the display is the obvious bezels beneath which has been quite famous with Infinix devices in the past year.
Away from that, you have the on-screen buttons and I like the fact that Infinix allows you to customize it in the settings.
As far as placements go, you have all your buttons to your right. A dual SIM card slot to your left, no placement on top because they’ve been moved beneath and from there you can see the micro USB port, mono speaker grills, and the headphone jack.
Now at the back of the device, you have the triple cameras, which is also a first from Infinix, beneath that is the quad led flash and of course a fingerprint sensor.
In front, there is also a massive 32MP front-facing camera, and as far as hands-on picture quality goes, it was quite okay, especially considering its price. Although I will put it to more tests in my unboxing and full review.
I also noticed that Infinix added a new camera mode called AR shot which might be considered gimmicky, but more on this in my full review.
Now, a quick look at the UI reveals the new XOS 5.0 along with Android Pie which brings the famous dark mode to the navigation panel.
Now, while I wait to get my unit of the S4 (Already gotten it), what do you think about the S4, especially at the price tag of N49,900 for the 3GB RAM variant and N64,500 for the 6GB variant?
