Asus has started pushing out the Android Oreo update for the Zenfone 3 sets. Both the ZE520KL and the more powerful ZE552KL variants are getting the latest Android version.
The update also installs the December Security patch alongside the Oreo. Weighing in at 1.5GB in size the update does bring all the neat Oreo features – notification dots, picture-in-picture and detailed notification settings.
The system update offers a friendlier UI design of the Settings menu and removes some unused apps like Minimove, Photocollage and Do It Later. Moreover, Asus is also bringing the Swipe up to All apps gesture, similar to the native Oreo app launcher.
The update is rolling-over-the air as we speak, so it might take a day to a week to reach your unit. Those who are impatient can head over to the Setting’s menu of their perspective handsets to manually check for the update.
Before downloading, the update makes sure your device is charged up to 80 percent and is connected to a decent internet connection.
