Asus ZenFone 4 Oreo update: New update brings latest security patches to ZE554KL model

Asus ZenFone 4 update

Asus’ range of smartphones, like many other Android OEMs, isn’t that easy to keep track of. Besides the sheer number of devices the company has out there, it’s naming strategy is pretty much messed up like the Samsungs and Huaweis of this world.

In August 2017, for instance, the company unveiled the ZenFone 4 series. Here, you’ll come across multiple ZenFone 4 devices, with some of them sharing the same name but with different specs (and model numbers). In this post, we give you a detailed coverage of the ZenFone 4 updates for the entire series, whose members include Asus ZenFone 4 Max (ZC554KL), ZenFone 4 Max (ZC520KL), ZenFone 4 Max Pro (ZC554KL), ZenFone 4 Max Plus (ZC554KL), ZenFone 4 (ZE554KL), ZenFone 4 Pro (ZS551KL), ZenFone 4 Selfie (ZD553KL), ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro (ZD552KL), ZenFone 4 Selfie (ZB553KL), and ZenFone 4 Selfie Lite (ZB553KL).

Asus ZenFone 4 Oreo update

Released for ZenFone 4 Pro and ZenFone 4 (ZE554KL)

On December 29, 2017, Asus released the Oreo update for the standard ZenFone 4, model no. ZE554KL and on March 12, 2018, the company started seeding the Oreo update for the ZenFone 4 Pro, model no. ZS551KL. The Android 8.0 build adds a gesture feature to the launcher where you now swipe up from the bottom to open the all apps screen. Besides that, the ZenFone 4 Pro also gets ‘long screenshot’ function, while the cast option is being replaced by ‘Play To’ function. Lastly, Asus says the power consumption has been improved too.
