Asus Reveals List of Phones Getting Android 9 Pie Updates in 2019, Including ROG Phone

Asus ZenFone 5Z has already received an update for Android 9 Pie

Highlights
  • Asus has released an update roadmap on its official forum
  • The ZenFone 5Z has already received the update to Android 9 Pie
  • The Asus ROG Phone is likely to be next in line for the update

Asus has revealed the names of its ZenFone smartphones that will be getting the Android 9 Pie update over the coming months. As the smartphone makers on the Android platform usually struggle to offer timely updates to the latest versions of the OS, and in many cases users are stuck with the OS version that the phone came with, this is a welcome news from Asus.  According to the Taiwanese company, it will be updating the phones like Asus ROG phone, ZenFone 4 Max (ZC554KL), ZenFone 4 Selfie (ZD553KL), ZenFone 5, and ZenFone 4 Max (ZC520KL).

The full list has been published on Zen Talk - the company's official forum - by the forum moderators, thus lending credibility to the source. The list is long, but the post mentions that these are just the phones that are part of the software update plans from Asus. Since it's effectively only a promise, there is a chance that not all of these phones will receive the software update to Android 9 Pie.
