According to user reports on Reddit, Twitter, and ZenTalk forum, the Asus Zenfone 6, which is also known as Asus 6Z in India, is receiving Android 10 operating system software update. Going by the user reports, the update is being rolled out in the US and India, which suggests that it is a global rollout.
The update is 809.89MB in size and comes with the build number 17.1810.1910.63. Considering that smartphone manufacturers nowadays are rolling out software updates in a staged manner, I believe the rollout of the new software for the Asus Zenfone 6/6Z is phased as well. Therefore, it might take some time to reach all users. All that said, Asus is yet to announce the update rollout officially.
A few users who have received the update have posted a screenshot of the changelog. And here are all the changes mentioned in it.
Asus Zenfone 6/6Z Android 10 Software Update Changelog
- Upgrade to Android 10
- Support Google Play System update
- Added fully gestural navigation in Display setting
To check for the update, go to Settings > System > System updates and click on ‘Check for updates.’ Usually, Asus posts the firmware update file on the support page for the product. Unfortunately, it isn’t the case with the latest update for the Asus Zenfone 6/6Z, at least so far. Therefore, there is no way to flash the latest software manually. Hopefully, Asus will update the support with the latest software version soon.
To recall, Asus announced it during the launch of the Zenfone 6/6Z, that the brand will not only update the device to Android 10 OS but also offer Android R (Or Android 11) OS upgrade to the device. While the brand has fulfilled the first promise, it is to be seen if the brand holds up to its commitment to update the Zenfone 6/6Z to Android R (Or Android 11) OS. In the meantime, do let us know in the comments below your experience with the Android 10 on your Zenfone 6/6Z.
