ZenFone Max M2 Android 9 Pie update

  • Android 9 Pie update expected by April 15th

Asus launched the ZenFone Max M2 with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. At a time when Android 9 Pie was already available, it wasn’t such a great choice from Asus. However, during the launch event, the company assured fans that an update to Pie will be released in January 2019, but this did not happen, although a new date has since been brought forward.
