INFINIX HOT 5 is the fifth generation in the INFINIX Hot series of affordable smartphones. The device packs a powerful battery, fingerprint scanner and Android 7.0 (Nougat). Infinix Hot 5 is the succors to the previous INFINIX Hot 4. It follows the league of coming in two versions unlike the Hot 4 that came in three versions, Hot 4, Hot 4 Lite and Hot 4 Pro.

The INFINIX HOT 5 has a LITE version, the Hot 5 and Hot 5 LITE is an affordable middle range smartphones with good performance and enhanced features. With the aid of the Dirac Stereo WideningTM technology, the Hot 5 and Hot 5 LITE creates realistic entertainment with high-impact audio & video using 3D Stereo surrounding.
