ASUS Announces Android 9.0 Pie Update for ZenFone 5 Series
Markham, Canada (November 20, 2018) -
ASUS today announced that the ZenFone 5 Series (ZenFone 5, ZenFone 5Z and ZenFone 5Q) is scheduled to receive the Android 9.0 Pie system update in the very near future.
The new software will be distributed automatically via a firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) update according to the schedule listed below.
|Model||Model No.||Android 9.0 Pie Release Schedule|
|ZenFone 5||ZE620KL||Early-Q1 2019|
|ZenFone 5Z||ZS620KL||End-January 2019|
|ZenFone 5Q||ZC600KL||End-January 2019|
Instructions - automatic FOTA procedure
Once the update is available, a notification will automatically appear on the phone's status bar. The user just needs to tap on the notification to download the update.
Once download is completed, a pop-up notification to install the update will appear: tapping 'Install' will then start the installation. The device will reboot twice during the installation of the update. Users should not turn off the device until the home screen appears.
Manual download/install procedure
It may take about one week for the system to complete the auto push. If the update notification/prompt is not received, it can be checked and initiated manually via the Settings System System Updates menu path.
