Infinix XOS 4 Honeybee latest update
What Is Infinix XOS 4?
Okay, now if you’ve been a longtime user of Infinix smart phones, then first of all you should know that XOS is Infinix’s own customized skin that is proprietary to their phones alone, just the same way Samsung has Touchwiz which has now been changed to Samsung Experience or Samsung’s One UI, Huawei also has EMUI and so on.. So almost every brand of smart phone out there has their own take and different flavors of customised UI, and XOS is Infinix’s own take on it.
So having known that, now XOS 4, codenamed Honeybee is the latest and fourth addition of Infinix to its XOS customized UI family. It packs a ton of new features which will be listed out shortly and it will probably be coming out first on the upcoming Infinix Zero 6 flagship phone by early January next year, and after that, it will slowly begin rolling out to other supported Infinix smart phones.
What Are The New Features Of XOS 4 Honeybee?
Okay like i said up there before, some features which are labeled as new here, are things that we are used to seeing already on older versions of XOS, and as for me personally, i think this whole thing is just overhyped..

Okay so for Brand New Icons, well i guess you already know what it means, XOS 4 is gonna come with a younger, gorgeous and more elegant visual presentation, exploring the infinite possibilities of design and aesthetics to allow every detail to be more attractive. Now in case you don’t understand all those big big grammar up there, well, i don’t understand too, that was what Infinix said, not me, so i bet we’re just gonna have to wait till we see the visual presentation with our eyes.

App Hiding offers better security and privacy protection, efficient management of hidden apps. Similar to what you’d get on Infinix Xhide. You can read about it here.
Better app hiding
Multiple Accounts Support is another thing that we are already used to seeing on older Infinix phones too. It simply lets you run two accounts of the same social network on one phone. For example, lets say you have two WhatsApp accounts, which you and i already know that you can’t log in more than one Whatsapp account om a single phone. But with the Multiple Accounts Support, you can log in both accounts on the same phone. Same thing with other social media accounts that you own too.

Fingerprint Call Recording, well you know what that means, it has been around already for a while now, but i don’t still for a life of me know why these guys at Infinix are labeling it as a new feature. While you are on a phone call, just place your registered finger on the Fingerprint reader, and the call starts recording immediately.
Fingerprint Quick App Launch let’s you assign a single app to your fingerprint reader, so once you tap on it, boom, the app comes to life.
And as for the last but not the least, now first of all, this is not that much of a very new feature, but it is actually gonna appear as a new feature to many, probably because they’ve not heard of it, and formally it was included as native feature on the older versions of Infinix XOS UI.
So what is it? Scan To Recharge.
Yes it simply lets you recharge airtime vouchers directly to your phone without having to dial or type the digits yourself.. All you just have to do is open the app, point your phone’s camera to the recharge card or airtime voucher, once your phone can see the numbers clearly, boom, your phone gets topped up immediately…
Thank you all…
