Asus Zenfone Devices to get Android Marshmallow
According to the post made by one of Asus employees on their Zentalk forums, the following Asus devices are going to be updated to Android Marshmallow:
- PadFone S (PF500KL)
- ZenFone 2 (ZE550ML/ZE551ML)
- ZenFone 2 Deluxe / Special Edition (ZE551ML)
- ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE500KG/ZE500KL/ZE550KL/ZE600KL/ZE601KL)
- ZenFone Selfie (ZD551KL)
- ZenFone Max (ZC550KL)
- ZenFone Zoom (ZX551ML)
So, all the new devices which came with Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box are in line to receive the planned update. The last generation devices are unfortunately out of it, but some of them might get supported by developers of custom ROMs.
When will the Update be Released?
Asus has announced that the devices mentioned above will get the Marshmallow update in Q2 of 2016. So the expected release date of Asus Zenfone Marshmallow Update is around April – May of 2016. The update will probably be released in phases and not all devices will get it at the same time.
Current owners are encountering a number of bugs and issues in the Android Lollipop build that their devices are running. Hopefully Asus will take care of them with the upcoming Android 6.0 update.
