ASUS announces Marshmallow rollout plans


ASUS has announced its plans for the Android 6.0 update we know a lot of people are waiting for. Though Marshmallow¬†launched almost five months ago, many companies have still not released the update for their devices. We should be used to this by now, though, as it’s been a trend with Android devices since the OS came out.

ASUS will be updating a bunch of phones to Marshmallow in Q2 of 2016, so June at the latest. Here’s the list of devices to be updated:

  • PadFone S (PF500KL)
  • ZenFone 2 (ZE550ML, ZE551ML)
  • ZenFone 2 Deluxe (ZE551ML)
  • ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition (ZE551ML)
  • ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE500KG, ZE500KL, ZE550KL, ZE551KL, ZE600KL, ZE601KL)
  • ZenFone Selfie (ZD551KL)
  • ZenFone Max (ZC550KL)
  • ZenFone Zoom (ZX551ML)

When these devices do receive the update, the messenger, mail, and calendar ZenUI apps will be replaced with the Google versions. If you’d like to keep the ASUS versions, they’ll be available on the Play Store. The updates are still a few months out, but at least the company isn’t abandoning these devices.
