Latest Infinix Note 5 update brings with it July Android security update

It’s just a month since Infinix unveiled the Infinix Note 5. However, no device is ever too young for a software update. More so anything to do with security.

Users of the Infinix Note 5 are receiving a new update that is just a little over 90MB that brings with it some polish and, of course, as you would expect of an Android One smartphone, the latest security patches from Google. Just like the Xiaomi Mi A1, another Android One smartphone that I highly recommend.

The update also fixes an issue I hadn’t realized that the review unit that I have even had: “no notification display when with incoming call”.

Throughout my stay with the Infinix Note 5, now clocking a month (which means a review is due, look out for it soon), this is the second update that the device is receiving.

The first one, which arrived just a fortnight ago, brought several new features with it. Top on the list was portrait mode for the main camera as well as other enhancements for the rear camera. That update also brought with it updates for several system apps like the Google app and the dialer app while also adding an app that was missing initially, Files Go, the Google file manager that is prominent on Android Go smartphones like the Tecno Spark 2, itel A32F, Nokia 1 and others.

The usual precautions like making sure the battery is charged to at least the halfway mark (which shouldn’t be a problem given the Note 5’s fast-charging) still apply.
