ASUS today announced that the latest Android 12 upgrade will be available for the ZenFone 8 series commencing in December, 2021. This will be followed by upgrades for the ROG Phone 5 and 5s series in the first quarter of 2022. The upgrades for the Zenfone 7 series and ROG Phone 3 series are expected during the first half of 2022.
This update inherits the major functional changes introduced in the official version of Android 12, as well as continuing the popular ASUS battery- and performance-management features. For Zenfone models, it also includes ZenUI-specific changes that allow easier navigation, streamlined control panels, increased visibility for better control and more customization options.
ASUS has already recruited Zenfone 8 users for the Android 12 beta testing program. The beta program will help identify and fix bugs based on real user experiences before the final software is rolled out in December.

sergesurDid you notice any battery life improvement?
Had 3 issues with Android 12 beta on my zenfone 8 so far:
1. Both SIM would never connect to data roaming. Tried the same sims on a different phone, had no problems. Tried playing with all configs, no luck 😞
Had no issues while zenfone 8 was on android 11.
2. When watching video content, have some artifact black lines on the screen.
3. When watching YouTube, the system UI freezes and the system asks to kill the process. After that works for some time w/o problems.
