Android 7.0 Nougat update for Asus Zenfone 3 ZE520KL / ZE522KL

At the beginning of January, ASUS has begun rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for Asus Zenfone 3 smartphone for Philippines users. However, the company had to halt the roll out as “quite a few bugs appeared”. And now it looks like the issues has been resolved, as ASUS announced that the rollout has resumed for its ZenFone 3 (ZE520KL) and ZenFone 3 (ZE552KL) models, early March.

The update weighs in at around 1.79GB and brings all the features one would expect from Nougat to the devices, such as quick switch between apps, multi-view window and work mode. Double tapping on the overview/ recent apps button will allow users to switch between two most recently used apps, while multi-window view will allow two apps to run side by side. Work Mode, on the other hand, allows users to turn off the phone’s work apps when not at your work, making for a balanced work-life balance.

Additionally, the company said it removed apps like ASUS Share and PC Suite and separated the “Ringtone” and “Notifications” volume bar into “Ringtone” and “Notification” volume bars, which obviously makes a lot of sense.

This official Android Nougat update will be rolling out in phase manner. You can check for the update from settings > about device > software update. If there is no update, then you have to wait for the update to come to your region. It may take few weeks to reach all corners of the world. But if you can’t wait for the official OTA Update then you can manually Update to Android Nougat update for Zenfone 3 ZE520KL and Zenfone 3 ZE522KL.
