The first thing that makes Infinix S4 stands out among others, in the segment, is its unique design. This is followed by the triple-lens back camera and its AI-enabled higher megapixels Selfie camera.

Apart from the ones mentioned above, Infinix also equipped the new S4 with higher RAM, faster processor and spacious internal storage.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Infinix S4 specifications comprises of the usual components; that mostly found in the mid-range phones from the Infinix Mobility itself and other phone companies like the Tecno Mobile.

For instance Infinix S4 features the regular 6.2" HD+ display (with 19:9 aspect ratio), standard 4000mAh battery capacity, Face Unlock, Rear-mounted fingerprint reader and so on.

Infinix S4 premium Design;
Although, Infinix S4 features the same screen type and size like those of other few recent phones such as Infinix Hot 7 and Tecno Spark 3, however, instead of having regular or wide screen-notch that comes with the mentioned phones, Infinix S4 comes with another distinct type of notch called waterdrop (name derived from its shape).
The phones that feature waterdrop notch always offer more screen real estate than those ones with wide notch.

However, unlike the wide notch that often houses front camera, speaker and notification LED together. Due to its size, or its shape, waterdrop-notch can only accommodate speaker along with the front camera.

Secondly, from the time of the Huawei P20 Pro to the recent Samsung Galaxy S10, the numbers of flagship and mid-range phones that feature triple lens rear camera are gradually increasing.

Therefore, Infinix also embrace this trend by introducing triple lens back camera to the new S4. In other words, Infinix Mobility added an extra rear camera lens to the usual dual back camera; that often come with the phones in such category, thereby making the total number of cameras, found on the back of the Infinix S4, to be three.

And thirdly, the back of the new phone is made up of a glossy, glass-like material otherwise known as Polycarbonate which gives the impression that the back of the phone, like its front, is also made up of 2.5D glass.

In short, the overall design of the Infinix S4 is about all-glass appearance and premium looks.

Price and Design Colour;
Meanwhile, Infinix S4 comes in three gradient colours of Nebula Blue, Twilight Purple and Space Grey.
Because the phone comes in 2 variants, i.e. X626 and X626B, the price of the first variant of the Infinix S4, i.e. X626 is 62,000 Naira, while the price of the second variant (X626B) is 72,500 Naira. It should be noted that the RAM and storage space of the X626B are twice of those of the X626.

Both variants are available in smartphones' showrooms, retail outlets and online stores in the major cities of the country.

Bright 6.2-inch HD+ Display with Waterdrop notch;
Like most of the recent mid-range phones from Infinix Mobility and Tecno Mobile, Infinix S4 also features 6.2-inch IPS-LCD Display with an aspect ratio of 19:9 and HD+ (720p) resolution.

Although the resolution has changed from the usual 1500x720 to 1520x720, in other words, the Infinix S4's 6.2-inch display has a pixel density of 269ppi instead of 268ppi that comes with the screens of the Tecno Spark 3 and Infinix Hot 7.

Apart from the slight changes in the screen resolution, what distinguishes the S4 display from others is the adoption of the waterdrop notch, which enables the phone to have more screen real estate than those ones with the regular screen notch.

Furthermore, better than those of other phones, you should expect a brighter or more vivid image from the screen of the S4, this is because the new phone offers a better screen brightness of about 500nit.

Infinix S4 comes with more than enough processing power and internal storage space;
powered by the M6762 Helio P22 MediaTek chipset, the new S4 features 2.0GHz Cortex-A53 Octa-Core processor. On the other hand, the new phones' games, videos and other graphics-related tasks are taken care of by the PowerVR GE8320 GPU.
RAM, Storage And O.S.;
Like i said earlier, Infinix S4 comes in two variants, and the first variant i.e. X626, is fitted with a 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage space, while the second variant (X626B) is equipped with a whooping 6GB RAM and 64GB Internal storage capacity.

And for their internal storage expansion, both variants also support dedicated Micro SD card, up to 128GB.
On its Operating System (O.S.), Infinix S4 is preinstalled with the Android 9 Pie along with the Infinix XOS 5.0 Cheetah UI (User Interface); for the optimum performance of the new phone.

Triple-lens Rear Camera;
Like the mentioned phones (above) from the Infinix Mobility and Tecno Mobile, infinix S4 also comes with a 13MP Main camera and 2MP Telephoto camera, however, in addition to this dual-camera, Infinix put another 8MP lens, called Ultra-Wide-angle camera, on the back of the S4.

In other words, Infinix S4 comes with three back cameras, and these back cameras are made up of 13MP Main lens, 2MP telephoto lens, 8MP Ultra-Wide-angle camera. Also, the three cameras are vertically arranged on back of the S4 .

The third, 8MP Ultra-Wide-Angle lens, is capable of 120 degree field-of-view, which also means it allows you to capture more of what is in front of you without the need to move back.

32MP Al-Powered Selfie Camera;
Meanwhile, unlike many phones in its category, the new Infinix S4 comes with a higher 32MP front camera.
In addition to its higher megapixels, the new phone's selfie camera is also powered by a more advanced image processing feature called AI (artificial intelligence), which aid the lens in rendering more detailed and lifelike picture images than those of its competitors.

Despite its better processing power, higher RAM and spacious internal storage, again!, Infinix S4 is fitted with the same non-removable 4000mAh battery that is found in the Infinix Hot 7. Although, Infinix claimed that on a single charge and under normal usage, the S4 battery will last more than a couple of days, this is due to the phone's Smart Power management.

Not sure about the 6GB RAM though, but the 3GB RAM version of the S4 doesn't support fast charging.
