Ro, 18 December 2018

Asus just uploaded the Android 9.0 Pie update for its Zenfone 5 and the package can be found on the company's official website. The FOTA update is just around 1.1GB and the process of installation is pretty straightforward if you are too eager to get the Pie.

All you have to do is download the package from the source link below then move the downloaded file to the microSD card. Enter into recovery mode, choose "apply updates from microSD, select the downloaded package, confirm and you are all set.

If you are not in a hurry, the OTA update should be coming shortly too - so keep an eye for the notification.

And as for the rest of the Zenfone lineup, in an official statement, Asus said that the Zenfone 5z will be getting the Pie by the end of January but there's still no word for the Zenfone 5 Lite.
