In the last week of April 2017, Infinix Mobility launched the Infinix S2 and Infinix S2 Pro. The Infinix S2 is the second from the HOT S series and is also the “world’s first wefie smartphone”. According to Infinix, Wefie(pronounced wefee) is an advanced front camera functionality that lets you capture more wide angled group selfies.
Before we get lost in explaining this new fancy camera term, there is a unit of the Infinix S2 Pro here, lets look into the box.
