Consider the launch of infinix smart 2 a response to the recently launched Tecno spark 2. Both lines are phones were launched last year targeting youths with low budget for smartphone.
Infinix mobile has really gone of their way this time to craft a such great design for an entry level device.
One of the major reasons the Transsion Holding trio (iTel, Infinix & Tecno) has the largest shares in Africa smartphone market remains their ability to figure out what their customer wants.
However, infinix mobile took a bold step to take the lead in this race when they started making security patches and OS update/upgrade available to their users via OTA (Over the Air).
The new smart 2 from infinix is obviously a low end device but onboard it are some specs and features that actually belong to the mid range devices.
