Infinix HOT 4 (X557) Official Discussion Thread by phonedaddy: 3:24pm On Aug 09, 2016
Infinix may not yet be done with the Hot series this year. At least that is the kind of message one gets after specifications of an unnamed Infinix smartphone, rumoured to be the Hot 4, showed up on popular device benchmark site http://www.completespecz.com
From what I gathered from the site the specifications are:
5.5 inch IPS LCD display, the device runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0 Operating system. The device features are 32GB Internal Memory, 2GB RAM, 13mp Rear Camera, 5mp Front camera and Bluetooth 4.0

The Infinix smartphone in question bears the model number X556 which is very much in line with model numbers of previous members of the Infinix Hot series. The Infinix Hot 4 is expected to be launched sometimes this month.

What do you think about Infinix launching a new device when they just released Hot S recently? Do you think this Hot 4 will beat the Hot S?
I will keep you guys updated when I get more information about it.

Infinix are just getting dumber with every release. Before you start hurling stones at me, lemme give you a logical reason.
Up till now the most succesful infinix product till date is the first of the hot series i mean infinix hot (no its not hot note) and the attribute behind the huge sucess wasnt the design cause God knows the design was a total crap (a heavy and bulky phone it almost weighed twice the size of a tecno f5). The attribute behind the success wasnt the UI (it posseses the same UI every other chinese products were releasing at that time with little differences).
It wasnt the ram- tecno had many products in market with 1 gig ram prior to the release of infinix hot.
It wasnt the display, infinix hot display is similar to nokia asa. But
the main reason was because it was cheap! Infinix dropped a 5.0 inch phone, 1 gig ram phone just for 15,000 at initial, tecno's equivalent product was sold for 21,000. I know right now all these specs are trash but back then it was the sh*t! The phone was economy friendly and it offered more than its worth so tell me why people wont flood sales outlet with a goal in mind- to get an infinix hot phone. I'm talking about a period when people in nigeria had a preconceived notion that the bigger the screen size the more the cost.
The next succesful phone was no other than the hot note a phone that bridged the gap between a normal smartphone and a tablet- infinix presented note for 23,000! ofcourse its going to be another smash hit!
Tecno were hardly making any impact during these periods. Even on nairaland infinix hot and hot note thread never leaves the the first page of the phone section on nairaland.
Now infinix have been releasing phones in these economically harsh days with prices starting from 31,000 and trust me none of them are going to or will be a smash hit sucess.
In my department i know 11 of my colleagues who are using tecno w4, while the people using hot 3 and note 2 are around 3 and 2 respectively. Now im not saying infinix should not release expensive high end phones im just saying that they should also release a phone that is economy friendly for nigerians in these harsh days at least tecno released boom j8, c9 and its other flagship phones but they also dropped something for the average middle class W4. So i think infinix should follow suit and drop something.

Remember it is only on nairaland that you see nerds and geeks clamouring for 3gig ram phones in reality what a average girl wants is phone that has a splendid design and longer battery. All they want to do with a phone is snap, operate their social media account and probably watch movies thats all, they dont need 2gig ram for flawless gameplay of modern combat 5 or nba2k15 or even open 10 apps at once. They only play sucar crush and last time i checked 1gig covers that so i propose these spec
5.0 or 5.5 inch
1.5 gig ram
16rom
8mp and 5mp
4000mah
and more importantly give it a sleek and beautiful design.
Price 26,000.

But the design is wack and the price would be purely outrageous

Hot3 is still there waiting for Machmallow update, no update. If infinix continues this way producing different models every months, they will loose faith in their customers.

The phone leaked is the Hot S and it's already out.
I don't think there will be any more from the "Hot" series this year. The Zero 4 is up next.

Hmm, you made some valid points in your comment and i must commend you for that, but it seems you must have a bias opinion about Infinix people them. As for me i think Infinix is doing pretty well with the devices they have been releasing recently, they are the first to produce a midrange device with front flash etc. But on affordability, you will agree with me that their is NO COMPANY that sells phone currently at less than 30k, if you know of anyone let me know, be it Gionee,Tecno or anyone. The current dollar rate is also a big factor. Now your price of 26k for that spec? bros easy nah.

Very stupid indeed.. Still waiting for Hot3 2gb version, they released Hot S very recently because of the battle between innjoo.. Now they want to release hot 4 instead of going for upgrades on Hot3.. Very useless.. Dumping infinix, they're mocking customers..
Re: Infinix HOT 4 (X557) Official Discussion Thread by Onerandomgirl(f): 12:35pm On Aug 10, 2016
Am just indifferent about the rumoured Hot 4, but if the phone will be better than Hot 3 expecially RAM wise, then am game. And i hope they will not release another phone two weeks after this their Hot 4, becasue i was even considering buying Hot S before, anyway if their is anybody that can gift me one, i will be glad

Gradually getting infuriated with Infinix mobile.

Firstly their phones get stuck at 1.3GHz

Secondly, their specs seem basic but the prices? Just too exhorbitant. Nothing new. No wow factor.

They really need to step up. And like twas said, they've got to bring something economical to the market.

You have a point though, but their last phone that Hot S has a finger print scanner, which is something new from them, about price, i think you should not blame them, dollar is rising like eba Ibo, even tecno and others dont do cheap phones anymore, everything is from 40k upward

The finger print scanner is old something na.
Maybe their first but even innjoo delivered it last year.

Tecno came up with the eye scanner thing. At least that's catchy. If their phones would be that expensive then they should try being innovative

Lol grin

Thing is, a whole lotta peeps got that phone 'cause of that feature. Sure, there could be issues. But that's tech. Twould be resolved.

I'm saying if infinix phones would be this expensive, then it should have this thing 'bout it. Finger print scanner is sorta basic already.
Sure they are trying.
They should know that more Chinese are coming.

And I'm not getting an iphone grin
