A report released recently by Counterpoint Research already ranked Transsion holdings with its three brands- itel, Tecno, and Infinix as the fifth largest player in the Indian mobile phone industry with a 4 percent market share in the first quarter of 2018.
However, Transsions Infinix sub-brand alone now aims to be among the top 5 players in the country, and to further penetrate the Indian market, the brand has announced the Infinix Smart 2 – a Flipkart exclusive smartphone that is set to go on sale on August 10 at at Rs 5,999/ $88 and Rs 6,999 $102 for the 2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB variants respectively.

Available in Sandstone Black, Serene Gold, Bordeaux Red and City Blue color options, the device lacks the basic fingerprint scanner but does feature the face unlock which the company claims can unlock the phone in 0.3 seconds.
