The Infinix Hot S4 is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 chipset alongside four cores of Cortex A53 processors, clocked at 2.2GHz. The phone runs on the latest version of Infinix native XOS (v4.0 HoneyBee) based on Google’s latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system. As I stated from the start, the Hot S4 is the first smartphone from the OEM to come with Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box.
