Asus has finally announced the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update schedule for over half a dozen of its devices. The new operating system will be rolled out to several ZenFone models and the PadFone S in the first half of this year.
A few mobile phone-makers like LG, Motorola, HTC and Samsung have already rolled out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to some of their devices, but Asus is yet to take the plunge despite hinting that some its devices would receive the firmware.
Now, Asus ZenTalk has confirmed that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will be rolled out to several of its devices in the second quarter of this year, which means it should happen between April and June. However, it didn't reveal the exact date of the OS release.
Here is list of Asus devices that will get the firmware update according to ZenTalk:
PadFone S (PF500KL)
ZenFone 2 (ZE550ML, ZE551ML)
ZenFone 2 Deluxe (ZE551ML)
ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition (ZE551ML)
ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE500KG, ZE500KL, ZE550KL, ZE551KL, ZE600KL, ZE601KL)
ZenFone Selfie (ZD551KL)
ZenFone Max (ZC550KL)
ZenFone Zoom (ZX551ML)
The same source went on to say the ZenUI apps â€” ASUS Messenger, ASUS Mail and ASUS Calendar â€” will be replaced by Google Messenger, Calendar, and Gmail when Android 6.0 Marshmallow is installed on an Asus device.
