Infinix S2 Pro is a successor of the Infinix Hot S. Popularly known for its strong Camera, Infinix seems to be dropping the hot branding from the S range more like they did with the NOTE range a couple of years ago.
The most outstanding feature of the Infinix S2 Pro is a dual-front camera, which should make it a toast of selfie and wefie lovers.

Infinix S2 Pro features a sleek design. It offers the same screen size with a downgraded resolution. Infinix S2 Pro has a 5.2-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. This may not be as good as the 1080 x 1920 pixels of its predecessor, but at 282 ppi is still near Retina Display range.
The downgrade may have been a trade-off for a cheaper pricing. Hopefully, the screen will be bright enough to compensate for the lower pixel density. The screen is covered in 2.5D Dragontrail glass.
Camera is where the Infinix S2 Pro is bringing its A-game. The dual-camera in front is the most talked about feature. Infinix S2 Pro has a 13 megapixels camera combined with a wide angle 8 megapixels camera in the front. The wide-angle camera offers a 135° wide-angle lens that makes it possible to pack more people into a selfie shot.
On the back, the Infinix S2 Pro sports a 13 megapixels camera with dual-LED flash.
