In case you’ve been living under a rock; a quick reminder for you. Just as Samsung has its One UI, Huawei’s EMUI, Xiaomi’s MIUI and so on, XOS is Infinix’s own customized skin that is proprietary to their smartphones alone.
Infinix XOS 4 Honeybee Features
1. Smart Screen Split
One of the amazing features the HoneyBee comes with and truly excites albeit due to its much fancy nature.
2. Switch between the notch and normal view
The notch is good and it makes the screen look awesomely beautiful.
XOS 4 is designed to fit around the Notch while letting the screen to offer as much more content for the larger display area. Inevitably, there is room for a switch between a normal display and one featuring a notch.
How to switch between the notch and normal view
You can enable this feature by going to Settings on your phone, and under display settings, check out the ‘Display mode of notch screen’ and select whether to use the cutout mode – where apps are displayed with a notch – or the full-screen mode – where the notch is avoided.
For the cutout mode, you can customize your various apps to either be in the cutout, or for the interface to be filled with black for a full screen.
3. Scan to Recharge
Okay now, what is this?
A new feature present in the Hot 7 smartphone that lets you recharge airtime vouchers directly to your phone without having to dial or type the digits yourself.
**We’ll wait for it
4. New System Navigation Gesture
This simply means that Android 9 (pie) will be coming to future versions of Infinix phones which means a change in the traditional navigation style button.
You can swipe from the lower end of the phone up to locate the app drawer, create more screen space for any content you are working on, etc.
5. Multiple Accounts Support
A feature that has been existing on older infinix phones for some time now but still included in the new XOS 4. This literally aims at helping you avoid the use of mod WhatsApp versions which might be harmful to your device.
If you have two app accounts, but you only have one phone; XOS 4 Honeybee allows you to log in to both accounts on one phone using the official Whatsapp app.
**Making me remember the old days of 2go Maxibrains 4-in-1 apps. The roles have been reversed anyway.
The Infinix XOS 4 HoneyBee skin might see to be that significant upgrade we’ve all been waiting for but more is still needed on the way if they hope to match up with better Android skins like Samsung One UI which offer their amazing custom OS to even their midrange smartphones too.
More features present in the XOS HoneyBee includes; the Intelligent fingerprint functions which include the fingerprint call recording and quick app launch support, brand new app icon designs, AI beautification support using the Ignite AI face beauty and a better App hiding option, a definitive upgrade to the Xhide app.
