The Infinix S2 Pro is a 4G smartphone with a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display. It comes with a 2.5D display, a feature also found on the Zero 4, which makes the display pop out and gives the smartphone an executive look and feel. It is compacted in an all-aluminum 48.9 x 72.1 x 8.07 mm frame, a size that definitely fits in the palm of your hand, putting the device all together and making it resistant to falls and scratches.

It is an Android phone, running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, with the Infinix customized interface – XOS Chameleon. This is a disappointment though, as many expected it to run on Android 7.0 Nougat, but hopefully updates will be incorporated.

It accommodates data of up to 32GB as internal storage and has a Micro SD slot that can handle up to 128GB of memory.

The Infinix S2 Pro device has a 13 MP rear camera with dual LED flash, while it has dual camera on its front – 13 MP and 8 MP respectively. The front 13MP is a huge lens, with an ultra-wide 135° angle, for welfies while the 8MP smaller lens is for normal selfies.

It comes with a 3000mAH battery to power up with a quick charging, and a fingerprint scanner for secure access to the device.
