Just two months after ASUS ZenFone Max Plus (M1) got an upgrade from Android 7.0 to Android 8.1 Asus reported on their support forum that the upgrade to Android Pie 9.0 is also coming “in the future”.
Here’s the quote from Selena_ASUS, one of the moderators of Zenfone forum:
“ZB570TL, ASUS will provide the “Android Pie” update in the future.
In order to brings best performance and exciting new features to ASUS phone. Please be patient for the “Android Pie” image update notification release on ASUS website.
Thank you for your great support and love ASUS products.”
Note that ZB570TL is the internal model name for Zenfone Max Plus (M1) at Asus. However, if you check the Model number in your phones’ settings, it will probably say ASUS_X018D.
Android P was released on August 6, 2018. This news comes to the forum almost exactly 5 months after the Android 9 release date.
What do you think about this piece of info? Are you looking forward to having Android Pie 9.0 on your Zenfone? How long are you willing to wait to receive the update? Let me and the community know in the comments.
