Asus has announced that their ZenFone 5 series of phones will be getting Android 9 Pie in the coming months.
The update will be available for the ZenFone 5 (ZE620KL) in early Q1 2019 and end of January 2019 for the ZenFone 5Z (ZS620KL) and ZenFone 5Q (ZC600KL).
Android 9 Pie brings a number of new features including Adaptive Battery which uses deep learning to better understand your phone usage patterns.
Adaptive Brightness in Android 9 Pie will automatically set the brightness slider based on your current surroundings. App Actions are shortcuts that will basically predict what you’re about to do next so you can do more quickly.
You can also use Smart Text Selection in the Overview menu (aka multitasking screen). The quick settings in Android 9 Pie have also been redesigned as well as small changes to better screenshots, simplified volume controls and more.
The Android 9 Update will come in the form of an OTA once it’s been pushed out by Asus.
