ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom Receiving Android 7.1.1 Nougat Update
The new Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom smartphone was unveiled in January but was made available only in May 2017. Asus delayed the availability by months to update its specifications. Still, when it lastly was made available, the price tag was reduced rather of a specification upgrade. One of the greatest pain points on the specifications list is the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and many users were not happy with that, as Android O was already in developer preview mode. To rectify this, Asus has now rolled out Android Nougat update for all ZenFone 3 Zoom users, with tweaks to the ZenUI and remove all third-party apps.
The rollout has been approved on the ZenTalk forum, where Asus claims to have pushed out the ZenUI version 188.8.131.52. The changelog notes that this software update improves the smartphone to the OS Android Nougat. It also includes Portrait mode on the ZenFone 3 Zoom and brings advanced picture taking experience for users as well. Finally, the update also includes bug fixes and performance enhancements.
The Nougat update also carries RAW file capture support. Google Assistant and Google Now have also been built into ZenUI, and the update has disabled useless features like auto-start manager, mobile manager, and ‘Splendid’ notifications. One of the significant change is the removal of all third-party apps. The quick settings icon was not customizable and had pre-selected options, yet with this update, the top row is now customizable to your preference. The report claims that the update size is about 1.1GB.
This official Android Nougat update will be rolling out in phase manner. You can check for the update from settings > about device > software update.
