Back in August this year, Infinix had launched the Smart 2 running Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. Nearly five months later, the smartphone is receiving the latest Android Pie update. The company took to its Facebook account to announce the roll out of the latest OS update.
The announcement, first spotted by XDA-Developers, doesn’t really reveal what new features Infinix Smart 2 device users will be getting. Instead, it only teases the new OS update. Having said that, Android Pie does come with a bunch of new features including Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness, App Actions, Slices, and more. It will be interesting to see if all these features make it to the Smart 2. It also remains to be seen what new features are added to Infinix’s own XOS Hummingbird with the new update.
