Infinix Note 4 receives Android Oreo (X572-H5312AD-O-180203V85) OTA update

A little over a week ago, Infinix announced that the Infinix Note 4, Note 4 Pro & Zero 5 will receive Android Oreo OTA updates . The Infinix Note 4 (X572) seems to be off on an early start as it has received an Android 8.1.0-XOSv2.3 ; X572-H5312AD-O-180203V85 ; XOS Hummingbird v3.2.0 OTA update. This seems to be a Beta release as several members at the Infinix forum have complained of bugs after updating to Oreo. I’m certain Infinix will soon roll out updates to address these bugs. So far, the build numbers of the Android Oreo updates (for each region) we’re expecting are:

  • Southeast Asia: X572-H5312CE-O-180203V55
  • Africa: X572-H5312AD-O-180203V85
  • Indonesia SKD:X572-H5312E-O-ID-SKD-180228V66

  • Take note of your phone’s present Build Number (Settings > About > Build Number), you might need it to rollback to a stable firmware
