As you would recall, Hot S was a selfie focused smartphone, and now the S2 Pro comes with a more advanced front camera.
Infinix S2 Pro comes with a 135° dual front camera.
The new smartphone feature a 13 MP + 8 MP front camera which makes it the world’s first “wefie” smartphone.
In case you don’t know already, a wefie in a simple term, is the plural of selfie. That is, a selfie with 2 or more people. Group selfie if you may.
S2 Pro comes with 5.2-inch display like its predecessor, but this time with a 2.5D glass technology.
2.5D refers to a slight curvature at the edge of the glass display, also known as a contoured edge. This slight curvature in the glass gives a better user experience in touch screen devices.
The Infinix S2 Pro comes with Android 6.0 out of the box, but it is upgradable to Android 7.0 Nougat. The device is powered by an Octa-core Cortex MT6753W processor, clocking at the speed of 1.3 GHz.
Infinix S2 Pro has most of the other features of the Infinix Hot S such as fingerprint scanner which can be found at the center of the back of the device, 13 MP back camera, full metal body, 3000mAh battery capacity and a host of others.
