Taiwanese smartphone maker Asus has upgraded the software version on its Asus ZenFone 4 ZE554KL model to the Android Pie.
It comes a little late in the day since the company had already upgraded the other models with the same ZenFone 4 moniker but with different suffixes like Pro, Selfie, Max, etc to Android Pie.
The company’s official website gives the update version as 16.0620.1905.10 and release date as June 17. Asus had first posted a link yesterday to an update that would have given the users a stable version of the Android Pie OS, but subsequently removed that post and has uploaded a fresh link which is available now.

Asus has advised the users to stay pout with the Android Oreo version of they are not comfortable upgrading to the Pie version.
