XOS 4 Honeybee is here, and it packs quite a handful of some very exciting new features, but of which probably a lot of people are gonna think they’re just over-hyped and are something that we’re already used to seeing before.. wanna find out? then i bet you should read this article to the very last word to do so… Say hello to Infinix XOS 4, say hello to the Honeybee 🐝.. enjoy
What Is Infinix XOS 4 Honeybee?
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 customized UI, and XOS is Infinix’s own take on it.
So having known that, now XOS 4, code-named 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 over-hyped..
- Brand new icon designs.
- Expanded View
- Smart Text Classifier
- System Gesture Navigation
- Smart Screen Split
- Ignite AI Face Beauty
- My Smart XBoard
- Apps Hiding
- Multiple Accounts Support
- Fingerprint Call Recording
- Fingerprint Quick App Launch
- Scan To Recharge
Okay so for Brand New Icons, well i guess you already know what it means, XOS 4 Honeybee 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.
Expanded View let’s XOS adapts to fit around the Notch allowing the screen to present more contents and a larger operating area. Allows for a switch between a normal display and one featuring a notch.
Forget all the grammar, what this simply means is that XOS 4 Honeybee will give users the feature and freedom to hide the notch on their smart phones if they choose to.
Smart Text Classifier Takes advantage of text recogniton results to generate links and gives users more click-through options to move faster to the next step.
Another big grammar. Now what this simply means is that when highlighting text on your device’s screen, XOS can automatically identify characters such as phone numbers, date, time, address and so on.
System Gesture Navigation, simply replaces the traditional old button navigation style to the now new gesture navigation that came with Android 9.0 Pie.
Now for Smart Screen Split, during a video or gaming session, incoming messages will automatically float out in a pop-up window, when clicked to reply the screen will be split to two showing the video/game on one and messages on another, allowing for a smooth coherent experience.
Ignite AI Face Beauty is an advanced AI beautification algorithm that realizes a one-click beauty package and a one-click brightening, making each photo clear and beautiful.
My Smart XBoard is a new XBoard that supports dynamic updates to match the user’s high frequency application service in a timely manner, which is more convenient and fast to use.
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.
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 on 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 wasn’t included as native feature on the older versions of Infinix XOS UI. So what is it? Scan To Recharge.
Well 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…
Alright guys, so i guess that should be it for today. I’m sorry we can’t say for now what other Infinix android smart phones will be getting this said XOS 4 Honeybee version when it finally rolls out because we don’t have that information yet, but we’ll surely include the list here when we finally do so, but all we know for now is that it is coming right out of the box with the upcoming Infinix Zero 6 and 6 Pro smart phones.
You can read about everything you need to know about them here, including their specs, features, price and Launch date. But for the meantime, let’s just keep our fingers crossed and probably hope the best.. #Cheers
