Asus has not officially announced this update yet, but they did say the Asus Zenfone 5Z, the Zenfone 5’s more powerful companion, would receive Android Pie in January. According to users who have installed the Android Pie update for the Zenfone 5, this is not a stable build and it’s available for the ZE620KL model.
