If you are among the thousands of people who happen to own the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M2 and the Max M2, here’s some good news for you. ASUS has started issuing software updates to both these smartphones that fixes a few bugs, adds a few features and improves the overall security of these devices. As you might be already aware, both these handsets were launched by ASUS late last year. The Zenfone Max Pro M2, in particular, was highly appreciated for its superb value and overall performance compared to what the competition had to offer at the time. A few months down the line, however, the competition has managed to catch up with ASUS, and it is quite plausible that the company will need to come up with a successor to the Max Pro M2 soon. In the meantime, ASUS is battling it out by issuing regular software updates to these devices. The company also recently announced a series of price cuts for these devices making them even more attractive propositions. Anyway, let us now take a quick look at what the new software update

Users who frequently use the front-facing camera on the device should expect an improvement in the overall image quality. The update also improves the display in the status bar.
