Can the Mods please tell that the 2 year update policy will be applicable to the Zenfone 5z till future or is there any chance that it will recieve Android 11(R) this year. Pls don't give the answers in for ex. Its still under evaluation or etc. Bored listening to same answers!!😑


  • 5z will not get A11 for sure. 5z will only receive security updates with some bug fixes for some more time.

  • Hi, we have already shared the current information with you, any news and announcement about updates will be shared once it is ready. Request you to stay tuned.

  • Please atleast give us ZenUI 7

  • Ifnot A11 Atleast ZENUI 7 is welcomed for Zenfone 5z. 😊

  • If a11 not coming to 5z . I'll never buy zenfone mobiles again 😾 . Ufffffff. See google , one plus service for their mobiles . U guys doing shitttt things . This is flagship Mobile of zenfone mobile line up. Snapdragon 845 . Idk how it's not capable for a11

  • It's not about the processor it's all about Asus update policy. 5z has received its 2 promised major updates (A9 & A10). May be in future they might support 3 major updates. But for now there is 2 major updates for Zenfone series.

  • That's pretty much the same for all phones except the pixel that get 3 OS updates isn't it ?

    Only Pixel, OnePlus, Samsung and I believe Sony too offer 3 android versions apart from that it's 2 by everyone

    And people have to keep in mind that the above brands leaving Sony (whose flagships are insanely costly) sell a lot more than Asus and are established names in smartphone market samsung's least selling model probably sells more units than Zenfone+Rog sales combined in an year

    But ui wise Asus fares better with stock+ skin (no bloat) and an good set of features compared to those OEMs

    And the hardware and software combination Asus offers is unique (Zenfone's flip camera and Rog phone's various features) coupled with their skin it's still an very good buy

    Right now Asus policy is 2 os upgrades and 2.5-3yrs of security patches and they deliver that fairly fast comapared to others but I hope one day they'll join the list of OEMs to support 3 os versions and 4yrs of security patches 🤞 but when that depends on Asus

  • What kind of update policy is that ? They should justify the Buyers request.

    I think that policy motto is Pushing customers to buy a new phone . For New features .

    Definitely i m not gonna buy asus anymore .

    Asus don't have any big line-up on their Mobile sales list. Making OS for 3 line up isn't that hard . If they want to compete with major competitors . They should reconsider their Update policy immediately .

    I guess zenfone 5z has the highest sales percentage than any zenfone phones .

    They should take care zenfone 5z than any phone .

  • That isn't how that works for example samsung now vouchs for 3 android versions but they left out their S9 series out of that list and consider this 5z sales overall was nowhere near what samsung sold of their S9 series

    Asus's own Rog lineup doesn't even have 2 android updates confirmed to be honest (Rog 1 just one android version) Rog 2's isn't confirmed to get A11 yet and Rog 3 is in beta stage right now, Zenfone costs like half of rog series so less phones does not mean less work for them

    Let Asus figure out their policies and hopefully their future policies vouch for 3 android versions but that'll happen if they sell more I guess
