Asus rolls out Android 9 Pie to the Zenfone 5 (ZE620KL)

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

It's been a few months since Google rolled out Android 9 Pie, which means that many OEMs with skinned UIs are gearing up to start updating their devices too. Samsung began its process with the S9 and S9+ on Christmas, and now Asus is following its footsteps with its Zenfone 5.

If you have a Zenfone 5 (ZE620KL), you should keep an eye out for an update notification. The OTA is being sent out now, though the rollout will happen in batches, so you'll have to be patient — or jam the check for updates button regularly and hope for the best.

Now, an updated roadmap has been spotted by SamMobile, pointing to quicker release dates for the Note9 and Note8.

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Day after day, more devices join the Pie slice of the Android version distribution pie, and today's addition is the Android One-toting Xiaomi Mi A1. Well, to be frank, we're not really sure if the update is rolling out correctly, has been pulled, or what, because reports are quite contradictory.
