Asus promises Android O updates for the entire Zenfone 3 and Zenfone 4 series

As you may already know, earlier today Asus held a special event during which it unleashed six additional Zenfone 4 models. These all run Android Nougat, but what about the future? We are, after all, most likely only a few short weeks away from the official launch of Android O (which annoyingly still doesn’t have a proper name).

Well, if you’re interested in purchasing one of Asus’ new handsets, rest assured that they will get to taste the next iteration of Android. The slide you can see screengrabbed below was shared during the Zenfone 4 launch event.

Android O is promised to come to the entire Zenfone 4 line of devices, which is definitely good news. What’s more, last year’s Zenfone 3 series will receive the same treatment too. The Android O update for the Zenfone 3 line will also include Asus’ newly revamped ZenUI 4.0, which the company says is simpler, more intuitive, as well as “modern and gorgeous”. While we can’t comment on that, it’s nice to see Asus bundling less of its own as well as third party apps in this version of its skin, compared to ZenUI 3.0.

The bad news is that, as usual, Asus will be taking its sweet time in rolling out the Android O update. It’s expected to hit all of the aforementioned devices “by the second half of 2018”. So it pays to be patient if you’re an Asus handset owner, that much is clear.
