Asus Zenfone 3 has reportedly started receiving the Android Nougat 7.0 update. The update has arrived on Asus Zenfone 3 variants carrying serial numbers ZE520KL and ZE552KL in the Philippines. The smartphone was launched back in May 2016 and becomes the first Asus smartphones to receive the Android Nougat update.
The Android Nougat 7.0 update brings a wide array of features such as multi-window support, which allows users to work on two apps at the same time thus offering better multi-tasking. Also, it adds the ability to quickly respond to messages directly from the Notifications panel. Besides, the update also brings a number of key features such as the new and improved Doze mode, which makes the phone go in sleep mode when not in use thereby improving battery life.
For users who haven’t got the update yet, it may take sometime before it arrives on your device as the global rollout seems to have just begun. In the meantime, users can manually check for the update by heading over to head to Settings > System updates > Check for system update.
Android Nougat 7.0 update has now started rolling out on a lot of devices. Just yesterday, we reported that Moto Z users in China have started receiving the update. Even the OnePlus 3 along with the upgraded OnePlus 3T have also started receiving the Android Nougat 7.0 update with the new OxygenOS 4.0.
