Asus ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro make the jump to Android 13

Vlad, 22 February 2023

Asus' latest high-end gaming phones, the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro, were launched back in July of last year, and now they're finally being blessed with the update to Android 13.

This comes after Asus' non-gaming Zenfone 9, Zenfone 8, and Zenfone 8 Flip all received the same update already, in line with what the company promised last November when it unveiled its update schedule. The Zenfone 9 was first to taste Android 13 in December, its predecessors followed in mid-January, and February is ROG month, it seems.

Asus ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro make the jump to Android 13

The new build, which brings with it Android 13, is labeled 33.0610.2810.72 for both the ROG Phone 6 and the ROG Phone 6 Pro. It may take a few days for it to reach all the devices out there in the wild. In the meantime, if you're impatient, you can manually check for the new software by going to Settings > System > System updates.

Note that if you ever want to go back to Android 12 you'll need to erase all your data, so it's best to back up before upgrading to Android 13, just in case.
