We have already told you that Infinix is planning to launch its next smartphone on April 10. This phone will be replacing the Infinix Hot S that was launched last year. The Hot S had a good run and this is why the company is back again with the Infinix S2 that will be launched next month.
With the Infinix S2, the company will be focusing on the front facing camera more than anything else. The company will be including a dual selfie camera on this phone. This will be the first smartphone from the company to feature a dual selfie camera. This is an interesting move for the company as we just did not expect to see such a camera setup on a smartphone that is expected to retail for less than Ksh 20,000.
With the Infinix S2, the company will be using a 13MP + 8MP selfies camera combination. What this basically means is that you will be getting two camera sensors but these work differently from the dual cameras I have seen on devices such as the Huawei P9 and the Mate 9. This is what I realized after I spent a couple of minutes with the phone.
The two cameras work separately, one is a normal selfie camera while the other one provides a wide angle that allows you to fit more people in your selfies. Infinix will be using the term ‘Wefie’ to refer to these selfies. I got to see both these cameras in action and the 13MP one has a really wide angle lens. This will be an appealing feature to those who regularly take selfies with their friends in them and have to use selfie sticks just to ensure everyone is in the shot.
Besides the camera, the Infinix S2 will come with the following specs.
Display: 5.2 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels
Processor: 1.3GHz octa-core
Selfie Camera: 13MP + 8MP with autofocus and LED flash
Back Camera: 13MP with dual tone LED flash
Battery: 3000 mAh
Network Support: 2G, 3G and 4G
Extra: Fingerprint sensor
Price and Availability
Even though nothing has been confirmed officially, the Infinix is expected to retail at Ksh 16,000 ($155). This may change by the time the phone is launched but will not go beyond Ksh 20,000.
We will keep you updated on this device if and when we get more information.
