Infinix S2, the wefie master, was launched today at a colourful event held in Lagos (Our very own Runtown was in attendance). If you recall we made a post on Infinix’s upcoming device dubbed the “wefie master” for its supposedly great front camera. Well, our predictions and expectations on the devices specs did not fall short. But before anything, you will be pleased to know that the Infinix S2 comes in two variants, the Infinix S2 and Infinix S2 Pro. Obviously, the Pro is the big brother or superior variant of the two. Even so, both devices sport similar specs save for some key areas in which the Pro comes out tops.
Expectedly, when you want to read about the specifications of a phone that is branded as the “wefie master” you would want to see the camera specs first. Well, that is where we will start.

On the back, both devices sport a 13MP camera with a 135-degree wide angle capturing capability. The camera also has a LED flash. On the software side, the S2 and S2 Pro comes with a group beautification feature. Androidnigeria will put the S2’s camera to a gruelling test and give you our verdict.
