While selected users have been taking part in the Beta test, Android 8.0 Oreo for ASUS Zenfone 3 has apparently leaked publicly. The firmware build number now updated to WW_15.0410.1711.6. It also brings the OEM’s latest custom skin ZEN UI 4.0 to the device. This comes with cool features like AI power gallery, slideshow wallpaper, animated themes Safeguard security etc to the phone. A week ago we reported the first look of Zenfone 3 running on Oreo.
Although Oreo upgrade is done, Zenfone 3 is still sticking to an older November 2017 security patch. We expect ASUS might drop a compensating update with a latest month’s patch. The Oreo ROM was initially intended for the beta users, but now with the OS leak, any Zenfone 3 user can install Android O. Below you can find the download link and flashing steps for the same.
The ZenFone 3 Max is also receiving the latest Android Oreo update with software version V14.0200.1712.347 which upgrades system user interface to ZenUI 4.0. This is great news as many other 3 series devices can benefit from the same such as the Zenfone 3 listed below.
Have a look at the new ZenUI 4.0 from Asus:
