The camera ins the main focus of the S2 since it was built specifically for the selfie kings and queens ,lots of other brands have introduced dual cameras whether front or rear camera,they mostly work in tandem to produce one picture but that is not the case of the infinix S2,you have a 13-megapixel camera for taking great selfies with plus an 8-megapixel camera with a wide angle lens so you can take a group selfie or we-fies.
The Infinix S2 Pro comes with a 13MP Auto Focus camera with a dual-tone flash. The images produced by the camera are great.

The main modes for back camera are normal, professional, beauty, night, panorama, PIP and wide-selfie.The main settings option are HDR, guidelines, Level, Delay capture, smile shot, touch capture and many other settings. We can reduce the image size up to standard VGA size if we are lacking of memory space. Interface is very simple and easy to use because it has flash light option, modes option and camera switch option at the top side.
Infinix S2 is using dual camera lens for its front camera. These days dual-camera smart phones use the second lens for wide angle aperture, optical zoom and sometimes for bokeh effects. These both lensed together can give us very different and unique results and we know apple has also given dual back camera lens smart phone.
