Back in November Asus noted that the Zenfone 5Z would be their first phone to receive the Android 9.0 Pie update, however, seems to be that the Taiwanese firm was forced to difference its aims and an update for the flagship won’t arrive until January 2019. Today, in a twist of events, the usual ZenFone 5 is receiving the promised slice of Google’s Pie.
Last week, the official Android Pie improve for the regular ZenFone 5 model flowed out online, what is maybe the reason that forced Asus to put it on its website, presently everyone will be capable to download it from a trustable source. Value noting that this improve is referred only for the ZE620KL model, Therefore don’t try to flash it on an additional version.
Unfortunately, Asus won’t be releasing this update via OTA for now, Therefore the only way to have Pie on your ZenFone 5 is downloading it on the company’s web and manually flashing it. The update weighs in at 2GB and has a lot of improvements, UI changes, and Google’s newest security patch.
If you’re pleasant with Oreo, you can yet wait for Asus to start rolling out this improve above the air, but as stated noted, we have no idea whenever that will happen. For presently, users of the ZenFone 5Z will have to wait a bit far more for the most recent flavor of Android, we just hope that Asus fulfill its promise of promoting the update for the handsets released in 2018.
