Last month, Taiwanese PC hardware and smartphone maker ASUS began rolling out Android Pie beta for its popular ZenFone Max Pro (M1) and ZenFone Max Pro (M2) budget smartphones. The company has now confirmed that the duo will start receiving the stable Pie update next month.
The information was revealed in a video posted on Twitter by ASUS India. According to the official statement, ZenFone Max Pro M1 and Max Pro M2 will be updated to Android Pie by April 15. The ZenFone Max M2 is also expected to receive the stable Android Pie update by the same date in India.
In Malaysia and other major markets where the three smartphones are sold, the update may be rolled out before the end of April. It should be noted that both the ZenFone Max Pro M2 and ZenFone Max M2 were originally scheduled to be updated to Android Pie in January this year. ASUS had also promised to roll out the stable Pie update for the ZenFone Max Pro M1 by February.
ASUS recently expanded its budget-friendly ZenFone Max lineup with the launch of ZenFone Max Shot and ZenFone Max Plus M2 smartphones. They happen to be the world’s first smartphones to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SiP 1. The System in Package (SiP) includes all the major components such as the processor, audio codec, RF front end, and power management in a single package.
