It’s no longer news that the infinix hot 2 is the first android one smartphone in Nigeria, Ghana and perhaps, some other few African countries.
For some couple of weeks now, we have constantly been fed with news relating to the latest android operating system which is the 6.0 marshmallow. While LG has said the LG L4 will be getting the new update by next week thereby making the device the first device to get the marshmallow update outside the nexus family, Infinix in a press release we sorta shared yesterday, said the infinix hot 2 x510 phone will be getting the marshmallow upgrade before the end of the month.
An excerpt from the press release reads thus:
Software speaking, HOT 2 is coming with the latest operating system in the market, Android Lollipop 5.1. As technology is moving fast, Infinix is following. The smartphone also manages your power and data usage. The device will receive an automatic and free update of Android Marshmallow 6.0 this month
While it’s not totally impossible for an android One phone in Africa to get the new marshmallow upgrade so soon owing to the fact that some android one phones in Bangladash and India has been reported to have received the new 6.0 marshmallow upgrade via OTA, you may want to take this news with a pinch of salt.
The reason for this is because although infinix promised some phones will be getting the android 5.1 lollipop in August, public betas were released sometime in July and beta updates in August with final versions for some specified models released in September.
Since the infinix hot 2 is an android one smartphone and Google promised 2 years of free upgrade on the device, update should be rolled out via Over The Air (OTA) and not having to flash like in the case android 5.1 lollipop on other few infinix devices.
So, If you own the infinix hot 2 smartphone, brace up as you could experience the android 6.0 marshmallow update on your device pretty soon.
