Infinix Android 11 Update

There is an article of Infinix Android 12 update highlighting the devices eligible to receive the Android 12 update but they still haven’t received the Infinix Android 11 Update.
The question that arises is, “When will Infinix release Android 11 Update to all the eligible devices?”.
Infinix Devices Eligible for Android 11
