A few weeks back, we announced that Infinix had pushed version updates from Marshmallow (Android 6) to Nougat (Android 7) to the Infinix Hot 4 (X557). The Infinix Note 3 & Note 3 Pro (both X601) had previously received a similar update and the Infinix Zero 3 (X552) got XOS v2.2 via OTA. As customary with fresh version updates, there’ll be bugs and that’s what subsequent OTA updates are for….to fix bugs.
Good news is that Infinix has rolled out OTA updates for the Hot 4 (X557), Note 3 (X601-H536A1) & Note 3 Pro (X601-H537A1) and these updates fix some bugs in the first Nougat build.
The OTA update Build Numbers are:
- Infinix Hot 4: X557-H807AD-N-170512V44 @ 168.39 MB
