This is a follow up post from this good News we published on 21st June about Android Lollipop coming to Infinix, your wait is over, they said they will make it available in August so the Infinix team had kept their word.
Some Infinix smartphones are already having this new Lollipop update.

The first One is this Beta version that is available now.
Then a final version of the Lollipop update will be rolled out later.

Which Infinix Smartphones will get the Lollipop Beta 5.1 (Public Beta) Update?
We are sure of these models getting the Lollipop update :
3 of these above for now will get the update. Other models may have to wait.
I am quite relieved with Infinix Hot X507 getting the update, if you read this previous post, I stated the phone deserves the upgrade too, a powerful reason is that Infinix Hot is one of the Highest Selling Android smartphone in Nigeria this 2015.
Getting the Lollipop upgrade on your Infinix device:
There are 2 ways to do it, but the Via Splash tool is the only method for now. Rumors say OTA Update will be rolled out end of August or in September

Which ever Infinix model you use, we advice you always check your SYSTEM UPDATES icon found in your Menu to see what update or (Over The Air) upgrade is there and perform them.
If your System is up to date, you should see the Android Lollipop on your own as well.
Lest I forget, in one of our posts someone complained He/She lost few Apps after performing an Update on Infinix Hot, hence from that experience We advice that you Backup your App data before performing updates. Data Back up can be found in your Settings.
We’ll be showing us a few ways to avoid and overcome brick issues and backing up our Android data in future posts.
Meanwhile, do Enjoy the Taste of your new Lollipop
