Hi ZenFans!
Android 7.0 Nougat is scheduled to roll out via FOTA update for ZenFone 3 Laser (ZC551KL). Here are the details:

(It will take about one week for the system to complete the autopush, if you do not receive the update prompt, then please go to【Setting】>【About】>【System Update】to update manually)

Release Notes
  • Update version: V20.40.8.58
  • Release date: April 17, 2017

  • Enable FET VoLTE and VoWiFi.
  • Remove "Share Link" as it does not work properly on Android N.
    If you want to share files across LAN, you can use ASUS file manager's Network place and wireless transfer function.
    If you want to use WiFi hotspot to share files to Windows 10 PCor Android devices, you can also use the new "ZenLink" app, which is compatible with Share Link:

  • Remove redundant app shortcuts “Audio Wizard”, “Splendid”, “System update” and “Flashlight” from all apps menu.
    How to turn on Audio Wizard? (System settings > Sound& Vibration > Audio Wizard or Quick settings > Add Audio wizard tile)

    How to check system update? (System settings > System Update)
    How to turn on flashlight? (Quick settings > Flashlight)

  • Remove “Tap and hold to show menu” from, and add “Tap and hold to activate Multi-window” to Settings > ASUS customized settings > Recent apps key.
  • Quick Settings now supports multiple pages, you can swipe left to right to see more quick settings if using more than 12. User can enter or edit screen by tap the edit button on top right corner to determine which settings enabling or disabling.
  • Split “Ringtone & Notifications” volume bar into “Ringtone” and “Notification” volume bars on “Volume Panel” and “Sound & Vibration” Settings. So users can adjust  “Ringtone” and “Notification” volume respectively.
  • Remove Shake Shake from ZenMotion.

Just a BIG question. Its ok to keep the OTA or is better download the firmware from asus site and place it on the phone and flash them from there? On my others brand phone the manufactor say thats better full firmware then the OTA update, Its that true? I allways do a factory wipe before and after.
