ASUS drops ZenFone 4 Android Pie update plans

The company soon, however, had change of plans, with them releasing a statement that they will no longer push through with the official update.

The 2017-launched ASUS smartphone was a decent handset during its time featuring SD630 SoC, 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM, dual real camera setup, and an 8MP selfie camera. It shipped with Android Nougat as its operating system out of the box and quickly received an Android Oreo update.

While users received a beta Android Pie update, it was still for testing. And after a short while, ASUS had decided to not go forward with the official update. In a statement on ZenTalk forums, the company shared in able to maintain the system performance and stability of the ZenFone 4, they are discontinuing their plans to update it to Android Pie.

ZenFone fans expressed their disappointment following this post. ASUS did say that ZenFone 4 users could still upgrade their phones to the Android Pie beta OS, but reiterated that there won't be supporting updates for it. This means, ZenFone 4 users could still enjoy the benefit of Android Pie but won't be getting added security or fixes when operations begin to get glitchy.

As for the other ZenFone 4 devices, ASUS has not yet released information whether they'll be getting an Android Pie update or not.
