Hong Kong-based smartphone maker Infinix Mobility today announced the launch of its latest budget device, the Infinix SMART 2 in India. The company is touting the device to be future ready at a time when devices in the budget segment often feature outdated hardware. In that context, the SMART 2 is Infinix's answer to the problem.
Some of the main highlights of the Infinix SMART 2 are the 5.45-inch HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, an 8MP selfie camera with dual LED flash and it comes with 4G VoLTE support on both the SIM cards. Infinix SMART 2 takes the Xiaomi Redmi 5A head on as Infinix has tried to one-up the Redmi 5A in as many areas as possible. This is evident from the 18:9 display, dual 4G VoLTE support and the pricing of the SMART 2.
The Infinix SMART 2 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and features a 5.45-inch HD+ Full View display with an 83% screen-to-body ratio, a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The company has compared its device directly with the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, Moto C Plus and Samsung Galaxy On5, all of which feature a classic 16:9 display.
In terms of performance, the Infinix SMART 2 is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MTK6739 SoC coupled with IMG GE8100 GPU. In terms of memory, the device has been launched in two variants - 2GB RAM + 16GB internal storage and 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage. The smartphone also comes with a dedicated microSD card slot, giving you an option to expand the internal storage by another 128GB.
Coming to the camera department, the Infinix SMART 2 features a 13MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, 5P lens and dual LED flash. On the front, the device sports an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and dual LED flash for improved low light selfies. It also comes with a wide-angle selfie mode which, as the name suggests, enables users to fit in more heads in the frame.
The Infinix SMART 2 is powered by a 3,050mAh battery, which is claimed to provide 21 days standby time, 21 hours of 4G talk time and 81 hours of music playback. Connectivity options on the device include Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth
The Infinix SMART 2 has been priced starting at Rs. 5,999 for the 2GB version and Rs. 6,999 for the 3GB version. The SMART 2 comes in four color options and will be available exclusively on Flipkart, starting from August 10th.
