Everyone there having Infinix Hot Note X551, get ready to have Android 5.1 Lollipop on your hot devices as it’s available now to download and flash on your devices. It’s in the beta stage yet so do not expect everything from this build. Final build is promised at the end of August.

Recently launched in Pakistan, Infinix Hot Note X551 attracted many in the market locally. We also got a chance to review this device. With its low price tag and features, where we liked the device for some factors, there were also some we had reservations with and one of them was the the doubt as if there will be any OS update to this device.

But It looks Infinix Mobility is working hard to give their consumers after sales support. They are listening to their customers and trying to bring what they need via a forum which is pretty busy with their consumer base.
