Nougat update brings much-needed features to the ZenFone 3 Zoom and ZenFone 3 Laser.
ASUS is finally rolling out Android 7.1.1 Nougat to two models in the ZenFone 3 lineup — the ZenFone 3 Zoom and the ZenFone 3 Laser. The update comes in at roughly 1GB, and increments the version number of the ZenFone 3 Zoom to V126.96.36.199 and that of the ZenFone 3 Laser to V188.8.131.52.
Along with Nougat-specific changes — split-screen multitasking, improved Doze mode, and notification replies — the update brings a Portrait Mode, ability to shoot in RAW, tweaks to the ZenUI launcher (Google Assistant is now baked in), and a Google Now feed to the left of the home screen.
The update is being rolled out in stages, so it may take up to a week for all variants of the ZenFone 3 Zoom and ZenFone 3 Laser to receive it. If you’re rocking either device, head into your phone’s settings to see if the update is available.
