The smart 2 and its variant (smart 2 pro) feature a HD display of (720 * 1,440) pixel resolution and 235 PPI pixel density on a 5.5 inch screen display.

To be very honest, the screen resolution comes short of expectation, considering dthe Infinix devices like; note 5, Hot 6 pro have seen massive increase in quality. Notwithstanding, the price is remedy to its shortcomings.
