ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 receives its second Android 10 beta update

Back in January, ASUS delivered the first Android 10 beta build for the ZenFone Max Pro M2. The owners of this phone are patiently waiting for the next beta update, based on the fact that its predecessor, the ZenFone Max Pro M1, recently picked up its second beta build with tons of fixes and optimizations. The wait is finally over, as ASUS has now released ZenFone Max Pro M2’s second Android 10 beta update.

The most notable change in the new build is the inclusion of April 2020 Android security patches. The software version number is bumped to 17.2018.2004.424 from 17.2018.1912.409, and the Widevine DRM level is restored to L1. Apart from these changes, the quality of video recording as well as the headphone audio output should be improved. ASUS has also fixed minor bugs introduced in the initial Android 10 build, such as the missing screen unlock sound and broken ringtone issue while receiving calls.

You can find the full changelog of the second Android 10 beta for the ZenFone Max Pro M2 below:

  1. Updated Android security patch to April
  2. Fixed video EIS anti-shake function not working issue
  3. Fixed screen unlock sound not working issue
  4. Improved sound quality of headphones
  5. Fixed wallpaper image automatically stretched issue
  6. Fixed widevine security level changed from L1 to L3 issue
  7. Fixed receiving call ringtone broken issue when the ringtone volume is set to maximum
  8. Fixed front camera TAE (touch exposure) not working issue
  9. Improved video recording quality
  10. Improved the outdoor temperature of selfie color

Whether you are running stable Android Pie or you are an existing beta user, you have to download the full firmware ZIP because ASUS doesn’t provide incremental update packages during this beta testing phase. The current firmware can be flashed on both ZB630KL and ZB631KL models across different regions.
