ASUS releases Marshmallow update for Zenfone 2 ZE550ML/ZE551ML

After a long wait, Zenfone 2 fans will be glad to know that the ASUS is rolling out its Android 6.0 Marshmallow software update to ZE550ML and ZE551ML models.



Posted on a thread, ASUS said that the Marshmallow rollout is scheduled for a June 13 release which is today. They also added that it will take more or less one week to fully auto push the update so if you’re an eager beaver then you can manually check your phone by heading to Settings>About>System Update.
