Sagar, 22 October 2021

With the stable build of Android 12 released by Google, phone makers have started announcing the Android 12 rollout schedule for their devices, and the latest announcement comes from Asus.

The Taiwanese technology company has confirmed the Android 12 update for the Zenfone 7, Zenfone 8, Zenfone 8 Flip, ROG Phone 3, and ROG Phone 5 and 5s.

The Zenfone 8 is the first smartphone in line to get the Android 12 stable update, slated to roll out in December, which isn't surprising since the company has already released a few Android 12 beta builds for the smartphone.
