Asus' ZenFone 3 line has been progressively receiving an update to Android Nougat, so if you have a ZenFone 3 get ready to update that software.
UI tweaks, better security
The bad news is if you have an Asus phone older than the ZenFone 3 line, you likely won't get the update. The list of phones that will get the update are listed below:
ZenFone 3 (ZE552KL & ZE520KL)ZenFone 3 MaxZenFone 3 DeluxeZenFone 3 LaserZenFone 3 Ultra
Asus has removed quite a few redundant shortcuts as well as live wallpapers incompatible with Android N. The phones also now support VoLTE as well as VoWiFi. There's also slight cosmetic changes to the interface.
What is most important though is that with Nougat, security holes with Android that was fixed in an October patch will now be applied to the ZenFone's installation of Android.
In the meantime, we got to spend time with the rather exciting Asus ZenFone AR recently. Here's our take on Asus' AR device.
