An Infinix Hot 5 (16+2) beta Oreo update might be around the corner

A few hours ago, an official staff at the Infinix forum hinted that the Infinix Hot 5 (X559) 16 GB ROM +2 GB RAM version will soon get an Android 8 Oreo update. Here’s the post:


Hot Series Fans Are You Ready? If yes! Then Lets Play Hot ..

There is a say which goes like this the hotter you get the stronger you become ….

How would you feel if Andoid O comes to Infinix Hot 5 16+2 version ?

Terms and Condition

Upgrade to Oreo expected result Battery Drains + OS Slow..

If you would like to get this Oreo update say YES OR NO

From what I comprehend, this update (obviously Beta) already has two known bugs; quick battery drain and laggy phone.

You would recall that Infinix Note 4 (X572) Beta Android Oreo update was such a disaster that there was a mass downgrade back to Nougat. This forced Infinix to push an Infinix Note 4 bug fix Oreo update .

Speaking of the Note 4 bug fix update, Gregpr was kind enough to share the experience as at update time:

This May update still has bugs like the previous, it has serious issue with flash tools in case you want to downgrade, it still has bug related to double tap to wake, it has bug related to task killer,apps added to white list are still been terminated during cleanup, I don’t think the PIP works, and so many, I was forced to downgrade again to Nougat rom

What’s happening to Infinix? I’m not exactly sure if we’re supposed to be excited about this news but fingers crossed all the same.

Do you want this update? Would you install it?
