Android 7.0 Nougat OS keeps growing since it was released in August 2016, and is now used on 45% of Android smartphones in the world. Although, the number is still less compared to Android 6.0 Marshmallow that is running on 31.2% Android devices.
Rumours flying around after the release of Android 7.0 Nougat OS upgrade on the two latest Infinix smartphones – Infinix S2 & S2 Pro in March have been that Infinix will soon be releasing updates for other phones in coming weeks. Phones listed to be receiving these updates include Infinix Zero 4 and its counterpart the Zero 4 Plus, 2015 Zero 3, Infinix Note 3 (already gotten beta version) as well as Infinix Hot 4, Hot 4 Pro, Hot S and Hot S Pro.
A few days ago, we received another report claiming that the update was being worked on, but only two phones were mentioned – the Infinix Zero 4 and Zero 4 Plus. This same report added that these two phones could receive the Android Nougat treat beginning mid-April, which is just a few days from now.
According to a new report posted on the official Infinix Mobility forum, it has now been confirmed that Android 7.0 Nougat OS will be available for quite a good number of Infinix smartphones. Top on the list are the company’s current flagships – the Zero 4 and Zero 4 Plus, followed by Infinix Hot 4, Hot 4 Pro as well as Infinix Hot S – but there’s no room for the 2015 Infinix Zero 3. Those using the Infinix Note 3 had already gotten the beta version update, though the Pro version of the latter model has not been included on the list, we still expect to see Android 7.0 Nougat hitting this phone.
