After long months of waiting, the Google Android 12 is officially released, and one question a lot of fans are asking now is; which Infinix phone would get the new update?
There’s no doubt Android 12 is the most exciting and anticipated software version after Android 5 (Lollipop). The addition of refreshed interface, privacy manager, revamped notification centre, etc takes the customisation to a whole new level.
Now, every Infinix phone user would be asking whether their phone will be eligible for the Android 12 update or not. So to begin with, we’ll start by listing the key features of the latest Android 12 before jumping to the Infinix phones that are most likely to get the Android 12 based XOS 7.6 version.

Android 12 on Infinix Phone: Features of the new Operating System
Android 12 just like everyone anticipated debuts with lots of upgraded features and customisable options that’ll appease every phone lover. Some of these features include:
When it comes to design, Android 12 introduces a new design style that brings extra customisable options. Fortunately, you can match it together with the colour of your theme and wallpaper and other components of the phone. Also, the widgets have been redesigned much to our surprise.
This is a feature we first saw on Android 10 but felt it’s worth bringing it here again. Scrolling screenshots does not only allow you to capture what’s on the screen presently but also beneath it such as capturing the entire webpage or document.
Android 12 brings in a native one-handed mode. You can locate it in the Settings by going to System, and then Gestures. The one-handed mode will break everything into half, more like a multi-window mode. This will make it easier to operate the phone especially tall ones.
Fortunately, the recent apps section has received some love from Google. This year Android 12, Google has added new overview suggestions which will show you things to do according to your recent activity.
Revamped Game Mode
With the latest Google Android 12 update, the gaming performance of your Infinix phone will be improved. Also, you can decide to turn off notifications while playing games in case you won’t like to be disturbed.
Android 12 Update: Will My Infinix Phone be Eligible?
Long term Infinix and Tecno users are probably aware how the two Transsion Holding companies are very reluctant in rolling out Android updates to their smartphones. Most times, some of these Infinix phones end up not getting any new updates, especially the new ones.
Infinix is known for equipping her new smartphones with the latest software instead of rolling out the update, and even when they do, maybe just a few out of hundreds are available. This is probably done to make you dump your old phone and jump to the new one especially when you’re so excited about the new operating system experience.
So back to the question, will my Infinix phone be eligible to receive the Android 12 update?
Well, there are two answers to this question; “Yes”, it might, and “No”, it might not, but depending on the model of your Infinix phone.
So with this, and coupled with the fact that the sister company, Tecno has already started rolling out update to her latest Camon and Phantom phones ascertained our curiosity. Who knows, Infinix might join the host of other brands in rolling out the Android 12 alongside her XOS 7.6 update. You should know by now that the Android 12 would debut alongside Infinix’s latest skin XOS 7.6.
However, some of the new phones from the company like the Infinix Hot 12i come with last year’s Android 11 but with the latest XOS 7.6. Nevertheless, this might mean the Android 12 update will be rolled out to the device later, but considering the fact it’s Infinix we’re talking about here, we cannot be 100% sure. However, devices that came with Android 11 out of the box are most likely to get the Android 12 upgrade. Based on this, below is our list of Infinix devices that are most likely to get the Android 12.
- Infinix Hot 12
- Infinix Hot 12i
- Infinix Hot 12 Pro
- Infinix Note 11
- Infinix Note 11Lite /11i
- Infinix Note 11 Pro
- Infinix Zero 8
- Infinix Zero 8i
- Infinix Zero X

Meanwhile, here are the devices that we feel are supposed to be getting the Android 12 based XOS 7.6 update, but have a thin chance of doing so.
