The Innjoo i1s (specifications | review)made a great impression when it arrived over a month ago. It turned out to be a wonder phone of sorts, offering some serious specifications at a rock bottom price. But barely was the i1s out on the street and Innjoo was out with its more powerful sibling, the i2.

So what improvements has the i2 brought to the table?

  • while the screen size is the same, the i2 has better resolution at 720 x 1280 pixels against the i1s’854 x 480 pixels. It is also a 5-point capacitive touchscreen against the i1s 2-point screen
  • the i2 packs a 1.4 GHz octa-core processor (that’s 8 cores) versus its predecessor’s 1.3 quad-core (4 cores) processor
  • for graphics intensive tasks, such as gaming, the i2 has a Mali 450-MP4 GPU (graphics processing unit compared to the i1s’ older Mali 400-MP2
  • the i2 camera has dual LED flash, while the i1s has a single LED flash
  • and lastly, the i2’s front-facing camera is a 2 megapixel piece, bumped up from the 0.3 megapixel unit on the i1s.

Specifications wise, those are the differences between the Innjoo i2 and its older sibling, i1s. The differences are significant enough, in my opinion. Will there be software differences? I sure hope so, because despite the differences, both are powered by a 1900 mAh battery. Perhaps some software optimisation will enable the i2 squeeze more time out of the same battery? We will find out when the Innjoo i2 arrives MOBILITY Towers later today.

In the meantime, you can check out the Innjoo i2’s specifications. There is an ongoing discussion about this on MobiNaija Forums: Side by Side: InnJoo i1s vs Innjoo i2. Feel free to join!


  1. Bought and used the i2 for about a week before selling it off at 500 less cost price. While it is a great device (runs smoothly and I actually love browsing on it, perfect size too and picture isn’t that bad) for the price, a major sour point for me was when it started complaining about the memory when trying to install or update apps and I’m not even close to being an app junkie.

    Shouldn’t complain too much though… the device costs 20k!

  2. Lumia 520 is also 20k with 8GB internal storage for apps and media no Partition, and u can even install apps on SD card with WP8.1

  3. Hey guys, apparently there is a fix for the ‘low memory’ issues. It appears they (Innjoo) have been listening. Head over to: for more info. They claim storage space for apps will be increased to a whooping 3.0GB! I’m DL now and hope to update…
