Asus Zenfone 5Z Starts Receiving Android 9.0 Update via OTA in India.


The Asus Zenfone 5Z was launched back in February last year at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) and a month or two later it was officially announced here in India and since the initial days, the device has created a lot of hype mostly because of the notched design and the price bracket it appears in.

Recently, the Zenfone 5Z started receiving Android 9 Pie via an over-the-air update. The update is said to be pushed out in batches and it’ll be reached to everyone by the end of February. If you are rocking the Zenfone 5Z and want to know whether you received the update or no, go over to your Settings> About > System Update.

As of now, the 5Z runs on Android 8.0 Oreo and this update will take the phone over to Android 9.0 which is the latest OS running. The update weighs around 1,080MB and we prefer to download it over a stable connection, it’ll be a lot better if you can download it over a WiFi network.

The update will bring with itself a ton of new features such as the contextual pop-up volume bar, the new magnifier feature for efficient copy and paste and tons of other features which the community has been asking for. The update also brings with itself bug fix patches and it boosted the overall performance. A slight change in the overall UI can be spotted. The update is being rolled out slowly and if you’ve not received it yet, just wait and try to follow the above-mentioned steps a few times in order to force a manual update.
