Asus Zenfone 3 gets an Oreo serving

Yordan, 29 January 2018

Asus is not a large manufacturer by sales volume but its update track record is decent if not quite the best. The company has just started delivering the latest Android Oreo to its Zenfone 3.

Both the ZE520KL with a 5.2” screen and the more powerful ZE552KL with a 5.5” display and bigger battery are getting the latest Android version.

Asus is bringing Swipe up to All apps gesture, similar to the native Oreo app launcher. The system update offers a friendlier UI design of the Settings menu and removes some unused apps like Minimove, Photocollage and Do It Later. Once updated, the phone will have the latest Asus security patch, dated December 1, 2017.

The package is “at least 1.5 GB” in size, and brings all the neat features Oreo has to offer - notification dots, picture in picture and detailed notification settings.

Shoutout to Lucas and SaRoJ KuMaR JeNa for the tips!
