Infinix Hot 5 (also known as Infinix X559) is another mid-range smartphone from the Hong-Kong phone maker – Infinix Mobility. The phone came with a smaller variant known as Infinix Hot 5 Lite. The two Hot 5 devices have very similar specs with just two differences; RAM capacity and availability of fingerprint scanner.
With the release of Infinix Hot 5 and Hot 5 Lite, Infinix is obviously turning more attention to the low-end market, the Hot 5 was meant to succeed the Infinix Hot 4 and have more improved specifications. But the only major improvement in the new Infinix Hot 5 is the upgraded Android version.
