Earlier this month, Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe started receiving Android 7.0 Nougat and now the other models of Asus ZenFone 3, namely ZenFone 3 ZE520KL and ZenFone 3 ZE552KL, have started receiving the Nougat treatment from the company. The company says that it will take around a week for the system to complete the autopush but they can always choose to check manually for the update.
As per Asus, the update to Android 7.0 Nougat brings several new changes to the platform including improved touch performance, removal of "redundant" app shortcuts such as Audio Wizard, Splendid, System update, and Flashlight from apps menu, and Quick Settings now supports
multiple pages. Further, apps like Asus Share and PC Suite have been removed with the update.
Apart from this, the company has added bundled notifications switch with the update for the Asus ZenFone 3 ZE520KL and ZE552KL. This option bundles multiple notifications received from a single app and then allows users to expand this group to see individual messages. Additionally, the Ringtones & Notifications volume bar has now been split into Ringtone and Notifications volume bars in Volume Panel and Sound & Vibration Settings to provide users with more control over sound settings.
The company has asked users in its ZenTalk forum announcement post to set aside 1.5GB of storage space before going ahead to install the update.
