Infinix mobility has recently launched a new budget smartphone in its “S” series device, the Infinix S5. Infinix S5 succeeds the Infinix S4 launched in April 2019 and it packs interesting new upgrades.
Infinix S5 features a 6.6-inch display and the first Infinix smartphone to incoporate the Infinity-O display (hole punch display). S5 like most of the recently launched Infinix device features a gradient design, however, this time the company has decided to add a touch of glass.
The devices uses a glass body (a 3D Crystal Feather Glass Design) with other extras. I was expecting an in-display fingerprint feature in this devices, too bad it still uses the traditional fingerprint reader on the rear.

Infinix S5 gives you an immersive view, thanks to the 6.6-inch HD display, 0.3-inch increase from it predecessor, (1600×720 pixels) 20:9 aspect ratio HD+ display with 480 nits brightness. The hole punch camera adds beauty to the device, it comes with less bezels and beautiful color options.

Infinix Hot S5 uses the same processor as its predecessor, Infinix S4, a 12nm Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P22 (MT6762) clocked at 2GHz assisted by a 650MHz IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU for graphics.
The device also comes in two storage options like its predecessor, Infinix S4, while the S4 comes in 3GB/32GB and a 6GB/64GB, infinix S5 is equipped with 4GB,6GB LPDDR4 RAM, and 64GB internal storage, expandable memory up to 256GB with microSD.
If you’re looking for a budget device with a lot of storage and handle multi-tasking job smoothly, the Infinix S5 will deliver just fine.
As you would expect, Infinix S5 runs the most recent Android OS out of the box, Android 9.0 Pie alongside the company’s XOS 5.5 custom skin. This device may not be the best option for fans who takes portability a priority, it weighs 179g.
Infinix S5 comes with 4000mAh built-in battery with fast charge, the same as it predecessor. Sincce there’s no details of the Infinix Hot S5 Pro yet, I’m guessing it’ll get a 500mAh increment in its battery. Also Infinix hasn’t launched many device with Snapdragon Soc this year, it wouldn’t be so bad if we see a Snapdragon S5 Pro

The standard S5 is priced at INR8,999 ($125/€115/N54,000), the Pro however will most likely start selling at 65k. Currently the device is only available in Indian and will arrive in Nigeria in coming months.
