After rolling out the update to Android 11 for the Zenfone 6 back in December (in Taiwan) and January (globally), Asus is now finally ready to do the same for its newer Zenfone 7 series.
The new software version is now appearing over-the-air on both Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro units in Taiwan, Asus’ home market. For both smartphones, the new build number is 126.96.36.199. It arrives carrying the March 2021 security patch level, as it should.
Aside from all the usual bells and whistles that Google packed into Android 11, this release also has updated built-in apps.
Asus says the update is rolling out in batches, so it may take a few days (at least) for all Zenfone 7 and 7 Pro units in Taiwan to receive it. After that, hopefully this will go global sooner rather than later.
