Infinix S2 Full Specifications & Price in Nigeria, Kenya & Philippines

The Infinix S2 Pro has been launched in Lagos as promised some weeks ago, but not alone; a lower variant named the Infinix S2 was launched alongside the Wefie expert. The S2 and S2 Pro have many specs in common but do not agree in the memory aspect.

Infinix S2 Specifications, Review and Highlights

Unboxing photos of Infinix S2 Pro

Design & Display

The Infinix S2 sports a metal unibody design like its predecessor, the Hot S. The design language has, however, been altered a bit, like in the S2 Pro; the rear camera module now lies below the top antenna line and the edges of the phone are more rounded.

The S2 has a 5.2-inch display with HD (1280 * 720) pixel resolution and a 282 PPI pixel density. The display is protected with Dragontrail glass which makes it harder, if not impossible for the display screen to get broken or scratched.

Storage & Processor

A MediaTek 6573 processor with eight processing cores (octa-core) and a maximum processing speed of 1.3GHz powers the S2 under the hood in conjunction with a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU which makes sure that graphics operations are carried out seamlessly.

The Infinix S2 comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 128GB using an external microSD card.

Camera

There isn’t anything new at the rear of the smartphone; just the 13MP camera with f/2.2 aperture and a dual-tone LED flash. The front, however, bears something different; a dual selfie camera setup comprising of a 13MP lens and an 8MP lens, both with f/2.2 apertures and soft flash for making your selfies brighter. The dual camera setup helps you to capture a wider selfie, something Infinix calls the Wefie, i.e. a selfie with many people in it.

Battery & Connectivity

The Infinix S2 packs the same old 3000mAh battery with a new feature – fast charging. This is quite essential since I sometimes find myself having to charge my Hot S for upwards of 2 hours in order to get a full charge.

The smartphone has USB OTG functionality which allows you to easily transfer files between devices, charge other smartphones and use USB peripherals on the go.

Software & Hardware

Like in the Hot S, a fingerprint scanner is present below the dual-LED flash at the rear for an extra layer of security on your smartphone. The Infinix S2 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with version 2.1 of Infinix’s XOS Chameleon UI layered on top. We hope the smartphone gets a Nougat update soon.

  1. Comment:the battery is dropping without using it… the battery is drain what is d problem I take it to infinity Carl care still the problem is there…. and we’re they refused to change another one for me.
    I have reported to consumers protection council..

  2. The S2 is a great device, I like the fact that they have different device targeting different customers just like gionee is doing, if you need battery, go for the hot note, if you need camera then the S series is a perfect choice.

    I was hoping to see a full HD device, but I’m glad they provided another option which is the infinix S2 Pro.
    Dated mtk chipset, but user won’t even notice any thing like hanging, thanks to the 2GB RAM support and fast Marshmellow 6.0 operating system.

    Thumbs up to infinix, they did a great job on this.

  3. Infinix mobility really did a great job in manufacturing this device. The device is indeed an awesome one, all the features and specs starting from the body and display ranging to battery capacity suits my need in any Android smartphone. As a bigger fan of Gionee, am now comparing whether to get this s2 pro or not. Infinix company really did a wonderful production this time. Kudos to them because this particular mobile phone will make a huge sale in the mobile market as am seeing it. Well, that’s by the way, I won’t forget to thank the hand that updated this information and made it clearer for all to comprehend what the phone is all about. Thanks for the update techlector. Your site is really really interesting to visit always, and i will keep visiting.
