The Infinix S5 and S5 lite are to be launched in Kenya this week. According to Infinix Kenya, the phone are to hit the Kenyan Market on 29th November 2019.

|Infinix S5 Lite||4GB RAM/64GB Storage||13,899.00|
|Infinix S5 Lite||3GB RAM/63GB Storage||13,499.00|
As you can see from the specs and price, it seems that the 6GB RAM/128GB Storage variant could be a sweet deal. Personally, I like it when I have speed and large storage for my documents.
The main difference between the Infinix S5 and the S5 Lite to be launched in Kenya is the S5 has quad rear cameras while S5 Lite has triple rear cameras. For selfie loves, the S5 captures vivid images. The 6/128GB variant is available in select stores countrywide.
