Infinix Hot 8 series was launched in Kenya in September of 2019. Infinix Hot 8 Lite is the device with the lowest specs in this new series. “Lowest specs” basically means that it has hardware and software that is not as good as what you get in the other two phones in the new Hot series phones. However, this should not discourage you from buying it especially if you are on a shoestring budget. It is a pretty solid choice if you are looking for a smartphone to serve the basic needs on a budget.
