While Zenfone 5 users, eagerly wait for the Android KitKat update, ASUS has just released some exciting news.
The company has confirmed that the KitKat update is in the final testing phase. And that’s not all, ASUS says the phone will receive Android L too.
The news came from a rather different source, in a reply to a review to the ASUS Pixelmaster Camera App. Here is the link to the review and ASUS’ reply to it, and let me quote what it says:
