Coming to its USP, Infinix HOT S3 sports a 20-megapixel front camera that is capable of taking good selfies even in low light conditions, the company claimed.

On the software front, the device runs on Android 8.0 Oreo. It is fueled by a 4,000mAh battery.

As Infinix heats up the smartphone market in India with its new offering, the handset maker is looking to grow its online business by six per cent by the end of the year, Kapoor said on Tuesday.

"We think the market would go at close to 40 million (estimated volume projection for smartphone industry) in the online space. We will be looking to capture 5-6% of the online market share in India," Kapoor told IANS here.

Infinix, an online smartphone brand from China-based Transsion Holdings, is also planning to come up with several launches through the year in the country at key price points to achieve its goal while keeping focus on users' requirements.

"We will cover the core of the online segment which is between 5,000-20,000 where bulk of the business happens... We would focus largely on that," Kapoor said.

"This year is going to be exciting so we are creating a good line-up and we are starting our journey with 'S' series which has been launched in India first before a global roll-out," Kapoor added.
