The update has a file size of 1,067.74MB (1.067GB) and it features a more friendly setting UI design. It also has removed the Mini Movie, Photo Collage, and Do It Later app.  Meanwhile, here are the new features of the new update, as posted in ASUS’ Zentalk forum:


  • Background limits – Android Oreo helps minimize background activity in the apps you use least
  • Autofill – With your permission, Autofill remembers your logins to get you into your favorite apps at supersonic speed.
  • Smart text selection – Android Oreo recognizes text when you tap or select, then recommends a next logical step via a suggested app.
  • Picture-in-Picture
  • Notification Dots – Press the notification dots to quickly see what’s new, and easily clear them by swiping away.
  • Android Instant Apps – Use new apps right from your browser, no installation needed.
  • A fully redesigned emoji set
  • Adaptive icons for consistent icons
  • Install unknown apps
  • Hostile downloader apps can’t operate without permission; users now permit the installation of APKs per-source.
  • And many more.

Do note that the update comes in batches, but needn’t worry as it will also arrive in your ZenFone 3 devices. You can check out if it’s already available just by going to Update checking under your phone’s setting menu.
