It has been a while since Android 9 Pie was released by Google and many OEMs are in the process of finalizing the update for their devices. ASUS has now revealed when one of the handsets in its ZenFone series will get the update. The ZenFone 5Z will receive its Android 9 Pie update in January next year.
Asus has reached out today to confirm that it’s now taking pre-orders for the ZenFone 5Z. The smartphone will be available from retailers later this week. The company’s latest flagship smartphone was supposed to be launched in June initially, Asus has decided to take longer to bring this device to the United States.
You could be forgiven for thinking that the Asus Zenfone 5 is an iPhone X clone from some unknown manufacturer in China. The new handset from Asus looks quite similar to the iPhone X, it even has a notch in the display. Asus has actually launched two variants of this device, the regular Zenfone 5 and the Zenfone 5Z, it’s the latter that features the Snapdragon 845 processor.
