Asus reveals which phones will get Android 9 Pie

It’s been six months since Google rolled out the final stable version of the Android 9.0 update. That said, at least Asus made it easier on phone owners and announced an Android 9 Pie upgrade plan for its phones at zentalk.

Here’s the list of Asus smartphones that will get the update:

  • Zenfone 4 Max (ZC554KL)
  • Zenfone 4 Selfie (ZD553KL)
  • Zenfone 4 Max (ZC520KL)
  • Zenfone Live (ZB553KL)
  • Zenfone 4 Max (ZB520KL)
  • Zenfone Max Plus (M1) Clear Soft Bumper (ZB570TL)
  • Zenfone 5Q (ZC600KL)
  • Zenfone Live (L1) Clear Soft Bumper (ZA550KZ / ZA551KL)
  • Zenfone Max Pro (ZB602KL)
  • Zenfone Max Pro (ZB601KL)
  • Zenfone Max (M1) Clear Soft Bumper (ZB555KL / ZB556KL)
  • Zenfone 5 (ZE620KL)
  • Zenfone 5Z (ZS620KL)
  • ROG Phone (ZS600KL)
  • Zenfone Max Pro (M2) Clear Soft Bumper (ZB631KL/ ZB630KL)
  • Zenfone Max (M2) Clear Soft Bumper (ZB633KL / ZB632KL)

Of note is the Zenfone 5Z, which already received its Android 9 Pie update at the end of January. The Zenfone Max Pro M2 also received the update, albeit in beta form and with the inability to downgrade to Android Oreo if something goes wrong.

Asus didn’t say exactly when the devices would get Android 9 Pie, only that they would get the update this year. Asus also didn’t state if it’s prioritizing some handsets over others. We’ll have to wait and see how Asus’ upgrade plan unfolds as we go further into 2019.

ASUS ZenFone 6 to Launch May 14th 2019 in Valencia

The ASUS ZenFone 6 is the successor of the ZenFone 5 ZE620KL launched last year. Not to be confused with first generation of ZenFone 6 back in 2014, the new ZenFone 6 launch leaked by journalist when picked up their MWC press in Barcelona El-Prat Airport.

The launch date was shown in an advertisement inside the Official Show Preview for Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 by Mobile World Live which is a publication owned by GSMA, the people behind MWC.

Scheduled to launch on May 14th, the ad also tell us the launch event will take place at Valencia, Spain. From this ad we could see the first appearances of ZenFone 6 2019 with tagline "Defy Ordinary"

Anyway, the teaser is pretty vague, but it's probably safe to say that the handset won't have a notch and particularly slim bezels. Perhaps we are looking at yet another slider phone or a periscope-like selfie camera? Either way, we still have a lot of time until the May 14 unveiling and even more leaks to come in the meantime.
