The Infinix Smart 2 is yet another smartphone with an 18:9 aspect ratio in the family of Infinix devices. It was launched alongside its higher variant, the Infinix Smart 2 Pro, and comes with solid high-end offerings like 4G LTE, 8MP selfie camera and the latest Android version.

The Infinix Smart 2 Pro shares the same design and many internal features with the Smart 2, and it is very easy to conclude that they are not in any way different if examined from the outside. The Smart 2 Pro, however, has a fingerprint sensor together with a second 2MP camera in addition to the 13MP main camera on the rear.

Both smartphones run the latest version of the Android software, Android 8.1 Oreo, but the Smart 2 runs a more basic version, called Android Go. This has been optimized for use on low-end smartphones, and allows cheaper devices to run latest Android versions smoothly.

Design & Display

The Infinix Smart 2 and Smart 2 Pro come with a 5.5-inch display which has an HD+ (720 * 1,440) pixel resolution and 235 PPI pixel density, offering clear picture and text reproduction. The 5.5-inch display feels like a smaller 5-inch device, thanks to its 18:9 aspect ratio which puts more of the screen real-estate in your hands, and allows you to operate the phone comfortably with a single hand.

In terms of design, the Infinix Smart 2 follows the design pattern seen in recently-launched Infinix smartphones, sporting slim bezels on all sides. The fingerprint sensor on the Smart 2 Pro is located on the rear below the dual camera setup.

Memory & Performance

The Infinix Smart 2 is powered under the hood by a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor which is capable of performing operations at a top speed of 1.5GHz. It is further assisted in terms of graphics processing by a PowerVR GE8100 GPU which runs at a top speed of 550MHz.

The phones come in two memory and storage variants; the first with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (Smart 2), and the higher, more expensive variant with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (Smart 2 Pro) . You can use an external microSD card with a size of up to 128GB on both smartphones if you wish to add more storage space.

Camera

An 8MP camera present on the front handles the task of taking selfies on the Infinix Smart 2 & Smart 2 Pro, and it’s accompanied with a LED flash which brightens your selfies in low-light scenarios. The phones also come with the latest Infinix Face Unlock technology which allows you to unlock your device using just your face. Infinix Smart 2 users can take this as a reprieve for not having a fingerprint unlock method.

The Infinix Smart 2 features a 13MP camera on its rear for handling main photography concerns, and the Smart 2 Pro takes things a notch further, sporting a dual camera setup consisting of a 13MP primary camera and 2MP secondary camera on the rear. These allow you to capture images with professional Bokeh effects and Portrait mode, and there’s a dual-LED flash setup for brightening things up.

Battery & Connectivity

The Infinix Smart series is not focused on battery power, but the new devices still do not disappoint in that area, as their 3,050mAh batteries can last for up to a whole day when used carefully.

Both smartphones come with a dual Nano-SIM slot and support dual-SIM 4G LTE network connectivity, meaning you can be connected to 4G networks on both SIM cards at the same time.

Software

Both Infinix Smart devices run on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, but the Infinix Smart 2 runs on the Android Go Edition while the Smart 2 Pro runs the standard edition. With these, you get access to the latest software features available in the Android OS and Infinix’s custom XOS Hummingbird UI, while ensuring things always run smoothly on your device.
