Tecno Camon X receives CA7-H633BCDK-O-180614V192 OTA update

A few days ago, the Tecno Camon X CA7 received an OTA update with Build Number CA7-H633BCDK-O-180614V192. This is coming around the same time that the Camon X Pro (CA8-H633EFG-O-180521V168-180614V184_20180615090239) and Camon CX Pro got updates. The feedback I’ve read from people who have installed these updates has been very negative thus far.

Infinix on the other hand seems to have stabilized the Note 4 X572 Oreo OTA with an update to X572-H5312AD-O-180531V142 (from X572-H5312AD-O-180503V139). According to a commenter, this new build is more stable…which begs the question; why is Tecno still struggling to release bug fix updates when Infinix can pull off version updates?
