Now, Infinix has added another interesting feature to the list – the Face Unlock. All Infinix Hot S3 users will get an OTA update very soon that will add Face Unlock functionality to their phones. Interestingly, the announcement comes on the same day as Redmi 5’s India launch. The Redmi 5 will directly compete with the Hot S3 in India and won’t include Face Unlock out of the box.

Once you have installed the update, you will find the option to activate Face Unlock under Settings> Security and Location. After you have successfully registered your Face Data, you can unlock your phone with your Face after waking the display (by using double tap or pressing the power button).

Apart from the Face Unlock, Hot S3 also includes an accessible fingerprint sensor on the rear. The handset is powered by Snapdragon 430 chipset and comes in two RAM and storage options – 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM. The Hot S3 is quite compact with a 5.65-inch HD+ display and flaunts a metal finish back cover.

Other features include Dual SIM support, a 13MP rear camera with F/2.0 aperture, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, and GPS.
