Infinix Mobile is a top-notch brand in Asian and African countries when it comes to delivering quality smartphones money can buy. Fortunately, the company is set to launch the next-gen Android 13 on Infinix phones.
With many smartphone brands including Infinix still rolling out the Android 12 update, Google is already working on Android 13, with the developer preview already out since February 2022. Fortunately, the Android 13 beta version is already available for download on most flagship phones including the Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G.
However, Infinix has a poor Android update rollout policy which is a sad experience for fans who love staying up to date with the latest Android software. It’s quite disappointing that even now most Infinix high-end phones are yet to receive the Android 12-based XOS 7.6 update. This is something most popular brands like Samsung, OnePlus, Oppo, etc already completed.
With Android 13 being the upcoming major Android software release, many Infinix owners would love to know whether their phones will be eligible for the update, its release date, and its features. Fortunately, here’s everything you’ve to know about Android 13 on Infinix phones, its release date, features, and eligible devices.

Android 13 on Infinix: Expected Release Date
Infinix is yet to announce any official release date for Android 13. However, since Android 13 is already in its final beta stage, we expect an official release date soon.
The Android 13 is expected to be released in either October or November 2022, so we expect Infinix to start rolling out the Android 13 update to its eligible phones from January 2023. This will be after the company is done with the Android 12-based XOS 7.6 OS distribution.
Android 13 On Infinix Phones: Eligible Infinix Phones
As of now, there’s no official Android 13 update list from Infinix or time of when the distribution will start. Based on the poor Android update rollout policy of Infinix, most mid-range phones will not receive the Android 13 update as only premium ones stand a chance even though it’ll be late distribution.
This is because the Transsion Holding company is yet to fully roll out the recent Android 12 update. However, the good news is that, according to Infinix India CEO, the Infinix Zero 5G will receive Android 12 in August 2022. With this, we expect other flagship phones to follow suit.

Will your Infinix Phone Receive the Android 13 update?
This is not left for us to answer, but based on Infinix’s poor Android update support, most of their mid-range phones will end up not getting the update. If you’re a long-time Infinix user, you should know that the company doesn’t offer much major Android software support as most flagship phones end up getting just one single OS update.
