Now, however, the Infinix Hot S3 is getting a Successor, Infinix Hot S3X which features a 6.2-inch Notch display.
Infinix Hot S3X falls under the mid-range category smartphone while housing remarkable specs. We all know the Hot S3 sports a Snapdragon chipset, so you sure should be expecting the new line of Infinix Hot S series maintain that processor chip.
