Infinix just released the S2 Pro, the successor to the Hot S. As you many have noticed, the ‘Hot’ name has been dropped this time round, just like we had stated earlier. This change is welcome as the Infinix Pro S2 is a big revolution from what we get in the affordable ‘Hot’ series of phone.
First off, the S2 Pro comes with a dual selfie camera. It didn’t stop at that, one camera sensor is 13MP for high resolution solo selfies and the second one is an 8MP camera for ultra wide shots that cover a whopping 135 degrees field of view. That will be more than enough to make sure all your buddies fit in that group shot. The rear shooter is also a 13MP sensor without the fancy dual camera tech. This trend of having more powerful selfie cameras than rear shooters was started by Oppo, we are glad to see Infinix make it affordable for the masses.
The phone comes with a 5.2 inch HD IPS display that’s runs on an octa core Mediatek 6753 which is more than capable to push such a resolution. Multitasking will be handled by a 3GB RAM and 32 GB expandable memory, but there seems to be a version with 2GB RAM.
All these components are housed in a beautiful metallic body that had a 2.5D glass on top and shiny antenna lines that are going to turn heads.
A fingerprint sensor is on board; it lets you do several operations with it other than unlocking. These feature include snapping photos, taking calls and more. All these functionality is baked into XOS running on Android 6.0. I was really hoping the phone would launch with Android 7.0 Nougat, it would have been quite a pleasure running split screen multitasking on such generous amounts of RAM.
A 3000 mAh battery keeps the lights on and the X Charge feature ensures that its filled up as fast as possible.
Lastly you can grab your Infinix S2 Pro at Jumia for the affordable price of 15, 699. Color choice include Gold, black, silver and Rose gold. The one is already available for sale.
