Asus-ZenFone-5-12If you happen to own a spanking new Asus ZenFone, or already have been rocking to one for quite some time already, this particular bit of news ought to put a spring in your step. Basically, a new firmware update has been introduced to this particular device, where it would see your smartphone get bumped up to Android 4.4 KitKat, now how about that? As at press time, we do know that this particular firmware update would target only the ZenFone 4 and the ZenFone 5, whereas the largest sized model of the three, which is the ZenFone 6, would receive a tiny update, helping address system stability improvements.

Nevertheless, it would not be too far out of place to suggest that the ZenFone 6, too, will eventually be on the receiving end of some Android 4.4 KitKat love, since there is no plausible reason for Asus to give it a miss.

With the new firmware update, you can expect improvements in the likes of Miracast’s compatibility alongside a slew of new functions, ranging from a Do Not Disturb Mode to Call Guard (Chinese and Taiwanese models only); full dual SIM standby (for dual SIM models); filter effects for videos; and “Reply via Call-in SIM card “. For those who have already updated your firmware, how has your experience been so far?
