Android 8.0 (Oreo) has finally been rolled out to all Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 Pro just as promised. The update was announced a week ago. According to the information, the Infinix Note 4, Note 4 Pro and the Zero 5 will get an Android 8.0 (Oreo) update. However, Infinix Note 4 could not wait for the date to come before the rollout.
Many users have gone on to install the new update on their Infinix Note 4. Most of the reviews and feedback have been positive except a bug which occurs at first installation. It is most likely, however, that Infinix will soon roll out a new update to fix this issue.
