The Asus Zenfone 3, which saw its release in the USA in October 2016, started to get the update to Android 7.0 Nougat in January this year. However, Asus had to put it on hold as there appeared to be bugs with the update. But now, the Nougat roll out has resumed to the Asus Zenfone 3. Originally released with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the Zenfone 3 update will bring many software improvements owners can look forward to.
|Device||Android 6.0.1||Android 7.0|
|Asus Zenfone 3 (ZE520KL)||Yes||Yes|
|Asus Zenfone 3 (ZE552KL)||Yes||Yes|
The mid-range Zenfone 3 is quite the eye-catcher with its glass and metal frame. It boasts a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and a 5.2 or a 5.5-inch Full HD display which left a lasting impression on us in our hands-on review. New features from Android Nougat will make it even better.
The Android update to the two model sizes, ZE520KL (5.2-inch) and ZE552KL (5.5-inch), will spruce up the interface and features found in the Asus smartphone. It will bring multi-window support as well as improved Doze power management. Other elements of Nougat that will come too are the new notifications panel, quick switch between apps, data saver and file-based encryption, to name a few.
