Design & Display :
The Infinix S2 Pro has a 5.2 inch IPS 1280 x 720 pixel display which is exactly the same as its predecessor , Infinix Hot S. The display is covered by a 2.5D glass which provides a slight curvature at the edge of the glass display, also known as a contoured edge (Read more here).
In terms of design , the S2 pro looks like a premium , high-end device thanks to its well polished metallic body and contoured edges. The unibody design means that the back cover cannot be removed and the 3000mAh battery cannot be replaced if damaged.
The fingerprint scanner is located at the back of the device , below the LED flash and above the Infinix imprint.
Hardware & Operating System :
In terms of Software , the Infinix S2 pro runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system which is disappointing as we all expected Android 7.0 Nougat. Nevertheless , there is high possiblity Android 7.0 update will be made available later on. Time will tell.
In terms of hardware the S2 pro sports an Octa-core MediaTek MT6753 Processor which has a speed of 1.3Ghz. The graphics processing is handled by a Mali-T720MP GPU , while the 3GB RAM takes care of mulittasking. The S2 has 32GB internal storage and an external storage slot that allows SD card up to 128GB.
Camera : What is Wefie ?
This is where things get interesting.
The Infinix S2 Pro has dual front facing cameras ( two cameras ) with 13 MP & 8 MP resolution. However , the Infinix S2 Pro has a different setup unlike other dual camera smartphones. The two cameras perform totally different functions and don’t work hand in hand.
The 13MP camera is responsible for taking “normal selfies” , while the 8MP camera has a wider lens which helps you take wefies (Wide selfies) at an ultra-wide selfie angle of 135 degrees. The picture below gives better understanding (Thanks to Dickson Otieno of Tech-ish).
Both cameras will likely produce photos with different quality (due to difference in mega pixels) , however , the 8MP camera is best used when taking selfies with people at different positions.
