Asus has announced the schedule for Marshmallow update for the Zenfone models launched last year. Asus launched many phones last year. Moreover since most of them share design and name similarities, the India portfolio appears even more overwhelming than it needs to be. However, the good news is that all of them will be upgraded to Android Marshmallow in March 2016.
The Android Marshmallow share is still just over 1 percent, so if Asus mananges to deliver these updates within March, Asus Zenfone users won’t have much reason to complain.
Android Marshmallow brings several important features like Google Now on Tap, customizable quick settings tile, new direct share menu, several new APIs, App links, more control on App permissions and much more. Cosmetically, it is similar to Android Lollipop, but since it will be layered with heavy Zen UI skin on top, cosmetic changes won’t be visible anyways at user end.
The following ASUS smartphone models will receive the Android M (6.0) upgrade in March of 2016:
- ZenFone 2 (ZE550ML, ZE551ML)
- ZenFone 2 Deluxe (ZE551ML)
- ZenFone 2 Laser ( ZE500KL, ZE550KL, ZE601KL)
- ZenFone Selfie (ZD551KL)
- ZenFone Max (ZC550KL)
- ZenFone Zoom (ZX551ML)
