Asus‘s Zenfone 5Z receives the much awaited Android 9.0 Pie update. The Taiwan tech company deployed the update in phases so it will take some time for the update to reach all the 5Z users around the world.
In this newest android version Google has added many new features and have improved old ones, some of the features include night mode, improvements to extend the battery life of the smartphones through adaptive screen brightness, malware protection, digital well-being and a secure digital platform.
The users will receive an update notification on their Asus Zenfone 5Z. Once clicked on the notification they will be asked to ‘download and install’ the update package for their phones. Once the package is downloaded they will be asked to ‘restart’ their devices. It will take some time for the device to install the update package and restart. Once the device boots up it will have the Pie update installed. But, users should keep their battery above the 50 percent mark to have a stable and trouble free update, and also they shouldn’t turn off their devices when the update is being installed.
For the users who have not received the update notification on their phones they need to go to the ‘settings’ menu, then to ‘system’ and from there they need to click on the ‘system update’. Then they need to click on the ‘download and install’ for the update to download to the phone. Once the download is complete the device will restart with the latest android update.
The Zenfone 5Z was released back in July of 2018 and it has Android 8 Oreo running out of the box. It was equipped with top of the line Snapdragon 845 SoC chipset with Adreno 630 GPU and has a 6.2 inches notched display with 8GB of RAM. Now that it has received the Pie update, the users will be able to use the new features this version of android offers. Also there will be a new contextual volume pop-up bar along with magnifier feature, which will make the copy and paste feature much easier to use.
