    Android Pie 9 Beta will not receive security updates and should be downgraded to Oreo (only path available).

    Let me know too if anyone has more updated information about android pie on Zenfone Max M1

  • Bro,that Android 10 update is a Developer Image Version that would contain more bugs even than a beta version,So better not going with that

  • Can we get stable update of android 10 on asus zenfone max m1 in next month?

  • We are not getting stable Android 9 or 10 update for Zenfone Max M1 which is ok but Asus should at least provide some software update which would have system wide dark mode option.
