Just when you think the Lollipop updates have gone sour already, apparently there are still a lot of OEMs and carriers awaiting the day when the rollout (if it ever will) will finally reach them. This week, it’s good news for the owners of ASUS Zenfone 4, 5, 6 lines as the OEM has confirmed that they have started rolling out the latest Android major update to the respective devices, proving that rumors of a 3-4 month delay were exaggerated.
If you own any smartphone that belongs to these 3 lines, then you should be glad that those rumors were just that. Previously, it was only the A500KL in the Zenfone 5 line that was upgraded to Lollipop, but now, the A500CG and the A501CG will also be able to enjoy the benefits of being upgraded to Lollipop, which includes having the Material Design as your smartphone’s default visual guide and other features like locked screen notifications, better battery life, and more security settings and options.
The updates are already rolling out as per ASUS, but if you can’t wait for them to reach you, then you can already get the files from their website already. Zenfone 5 has software version 18.104.22.168 while Zenfone 4 A400CG will have version 7.3.3. Zenfone 6 A600CG and A601CG already have download links as well, but the OTA seems to not be available yet.
With Android M on the horizon (although far, far away for now), let’s hope Lollipop will finally arrive on all the devices expecting it before we already start speculating and gathering rumors about M (M&M’s? Mac and cheese? Mint?).
