The Zenfone 5Z has been an incredible flagship phone, with its amazing specs and price. And now we have some great news, ASUS has officially announced the Zenfone 5Z Android Pie Update release date.
To recap, the Zenfone 5Z was launched with ZenUI 5.0 based on Android Oreo, in July.
ASUS Zenfone 5Z Android Pie Update Release Date
According to a press note sent from ASUS to AndroidPure, the Zenfone 5Z Android Pie Update release date is set for the end of January 2019.
One odd thing we noticed in the email, was that it mentions the model number of the device as ZS620KL. That's odd because all variants of the Zenfone 5Z sold in India, have the model number ZS621KL.
The ZS620KL model number is that of the global variant, but since we have received the news from ASUS India, we think it will be released for the ZS621KL at the same time.
The company has been on an impressive pattern with updates, having recently added support for EIS for the Zenfone Max Pro M1.
If you are interested in buying the Zenfone 5Z, you should know that it is currently discounted, as part of Flipkart's Mobile Bonanza sale. You can get the device for Rs. 5,000 off of the regular price, on any of the three variants.
