ASUS has released the Zenfone Max Pro M1 EIS Update. No prizes for guessing what it does, it adds support for Electronic Image Stabilization for the popular phone.
The Zenfone Max Pro M1 EIS Update is about 83MB to download (from the previous patch), and changes the firmware to 15.2016.1810.337. The company had already rolled out the October Security Patch in the previous update, 15.2016.1810.334.
In addition to this, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 EIS Update also brings support for Live Wallpaper. It is a bit surprising that it took the company this long to introduce an old feature such as this.

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 EIS Update is available for both the 3GB and 4GB RAM variants of the phone.
