ASUS rolls out an Android Pie beta for the ZenFone 4
ASUS has worked on updating the ZenFone 4 series of devices to Android Pie. We’ve seen updates for the ZenFone 4 Max and ZenFone 4 Selfie. The latest member of the family to get in on Android Pie is the regular ZenFone 4. ASUS is rolling out a beta update for the ZenFone 4 now.
The ZenFone 4 was released all the way back in 2017 with Android Nougat. It was updated to Android Oreo in early 2018. Now, the device is beginning to get its second major Android update. ASUS hasn’t provided a detailed changelog for the update, but you can expect the usual array of Android Pie goodies.
As a refresher, the ZenFone 4 is the mid-range option in the family. It features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 5.5-inch Full HD display. There are two cameras on the back (12MP + 8MP wide-angle), and an 8MP front camera. Lastly, the battery is 3,300 mAh.
One important thing to note is ASUS says the Android Pie beta will not be supported with routine updates. So if you want to continue getting OTA updates, it’s best to stick with Android Oreo now. If you’re interested in joining the beta, you can download the firmware from the link below. We will let you know when ASUS kicks off the stable update to Android Pie.
