So, Android OEM, Infinix sent out this tweet yesterday.

The device being touted is the Hot 3. We expect it to be released sometime later this year. They’ve given the device the tagline “selfie with soft flash makes life colorful”. What this tells me, is that the major selling points of the device are a soft flash, and a high resolution front camera (more than 5MP, I hope). 

The Hot 3 isn’t an Android One device, unlike its predecessor, the Hot 2 X510, which was the first Android One device to be released in Africa. It was part of the second generation of Android One mobile phones. The first generation was rolled out in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Indonesia, and other South Asian countries in 2014.
