If you own either of ASUS ZenFone 4, 5, 6 or PadFone S and are waiting to get an OTA update to Android 5.0 Lollipop update as promised by ASUS in the mid of May then there is some bad news for you. ASUS has just announced that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for these devices is now delayed due to some issues found during verification.
ASUS gave no details on what these verification issues are and how much time they need to fix them. This delay also leads to some uncertainty about when the release will happen finally as they didn’t gave any time frame or ETA. Here is what they had said:

Aprt from this, the Lollipop update for new Padfone Infinity (A86) is getting pushed back indefinitely. The reason cited by ASUS is “due to limitation of the processor”. They now promise only to provide upgrades based on Kitkat.
