Not only was the ZenFone 4 series unveiled during We Love Photo in Taiwan on August 17th, but the future roadmap for OS updates for ZenFone 3 and 4 were also announced.


Onstage, Marcel Campos, Head of Global Content Marketing at ASUS, announced that not only will ZenFone 4 series be running ZenUI 4.0 and be upgraded to Android Oreo, but last year's ZenFone 3 series will be updated as well.


ZenUI 4.0 features the lightest Android UI skin to date yet, according to ASUS. Featuring up to % increase in overall performance when using popular apps. ZenUI 4.0 also gets rid of unnecessary bloatware, shaving down the 35 pre-installed apps on ZenUI 3.5 to just 13 apps. It will also improve the UI for more intuitive operation, and will have new features such as Twin Apps (two social media accounts on one device), Page Marker (a bookmarks app), and more.


Android Oreo on the other hand will feature much awaited improvements from Nougat, such picture-in-picture mode, unread notification app badges, better Bluetooth audio support and adaptive icons, to name a few.

ZenUI 4.0 might roll out to ZenFone 3 devices soon after the release of the ZenFone 4 series (let's still wait for further announcements), meanwhile ASUS announced that Android Oreo will be gradually released to all supported devices by the second half of 2018.

Why is ASUS always behind. Other phones already have bug fixes for Nougat from 7.0 to 7.1.1. Even my child's cheap Nexbit Robin upgraded to 7.1.1 but ASUS fixes nothing

Asus is perhaps not the fastest when delivering updates, but I think it is time to say Thanks you Asus.

Remember that we already got the security patch for this month.
