Last month, Chinese smartphone brand Infinix, which is owned by Transsion Holdings, launched the Infinix Hot 6 Pro in India with a price tag of ₹7999, an 18:9 display, and, a huge 4000 mAh battery under the hood. Now, further expanding its portfolio of smartphones in India, Infinix has launched the Infinix Smart 2.
The Infinix Smart 2 is a budget smartphone. It is powered by MediaTek’s MT6739 quad-core processor which is clocked at 1.5 GHz and is paired with 2 or 3 GB RAM. The 2 GB RAM variant comes with 16 GB of storage whereas the 3 GB RAM variant comes with 32 GB of storage.
The Infinix Smart 2 runs Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box and sports a 5.45-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1440 x 720 pixel resolution. This helps the smartphone achieve smaller bezels at the top and on the left and right, however, the bottom bezel is relatively large and the space feels utterly wasted.
For photography, the Infinix Smart 2 comes with a 13 MP camera at the back and an 8 MP camera on the front. Both the cameras are accompanied by LED flash, and, the rear camera also supports Bokeh Mode that lets you take photos with blurred background.
The smartphone also supports Dual VoLTE which means you can use VoLTE service on both your SIM cards. Furthermore, the smartphone also comes with a dedicated slot for microSD card which means you don’t have to choose between inserting an extra SIM or having more storage.
The Infinix Smart 2 doesn’t come with a fingerprint scanner, but, it does come with Face Unlock that lets you unlock the smartphone using your face. Lastly, the smartphone comes with a 3050 mAh battery that draws power from a micro USB port.
