A couple of months after its debut on the ZenFone 3 Deluxe (ZS550KL) variant, Android 8.0 Oreo has now reached the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL). The new Android update brings tons of core Android Oreo features and removes some of the pre-installed apps. Users can download the latest Android experience via an FOTA (firmware-over-the-air) package that is rolling out globally.

As per the official changelog that has been posted on Asus' ZenTalk forums, the new software update (version 15.0210.1804.47) for the ZenFone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL) brings Android 8.0 Oreo. The Oreo version has features such as Autofill, Picture-in-Picture mode, and Smart text selection among others. There are also various redesigned emoji characters, adaptive icons, and an easier installation process for unknown apps. Further, the update adds a gesture to let you open the app drawer by swiping up your finger on the screen.

The Android Oreo update also removes pre-installed apps, including MiniMovie, Photo Collage, Do It Later: Tasks & To-Dos, TripAdvisor, Puffin Browser, and Kindle. Likewise, it turns off ZenMotion and updates Privacy Setting. The update also enables CHT VoWifi to enable the ability to let users make voice calls over a Wi-Fi network. However, this function works with only select carriers.

You can check the availability of the Android Oreo update on your ZenFone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL) by visiting Settings > About Phone. It is recommended to back up data before beginning the update process. Also, you need to use a high-speed Wi-Fi or data network to download the update package.
