Asus Start Seeding Android 7.0 Nougat Update for Zenfone 3 Deluxe


Good news for all those who have recently got a brand new Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe. The device was launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the beginning. But now the company has decided to roll out the latest version Android 7.0 Nougat for Zenfone 3 Deluxe.

The Taiwanese company could not do much business with other Zenfone 3 series in the United States. The reason is the devices arrived a bit later in the market. But now it seems the sales will see some rise with the company offering Android 7.0 Nougat for their Deluxe model.

ZS550KL is the model number to get this Android update. This model is available in the United States. And Asus already started pushing the 7.0 Nougat in the said model. Apart from rolling out the latest Android version, some other tweaks are also made in the Deluxe model.

Most importantly the Shark Link app is been removed now. Along with these, other app shortcuts such as Audio Wizard, System update, Splendid, Flashlight, etc. are also removed from all apps menu. However, those who have just upgraded Flashlight from Play store can open the app from all app menu. ShakeShake from ZenMotion and PC suites are also removed in the recent update.

The most recent version of Android will make the Zenfone 3 Deluxe even more enjoyable no doubt. So, get ready to have the best out of your brand new device.
