In early April, ASUS announced an official statement, calling the Oreo update for ZenFone 3 Zoom delayed due to a number of issues that need to be fixed. ASUS also mentioned that the company plans to release an update at the end of June.
ASUS managed to fix the problem that prevented it from releasing updates as quickly as promised. ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom owners have the chance to receive Android 8.0 Oreo in the end.
ASUS confirmed via the forum that ZenFone 3 Zoom is now compatible with Android 8.0 Oreo. The official change list states that after the upgrade, the phone's internal storage space will decline slightly.
In addition, ASUS also eliminates a number of apps that are the default application of ZenFone 3 Zoom before, including Minimove, PhotoChange, and Do It Later. Meanwhile, the gestures displaying the All Apps Menu have been converted into gestures sweep up.
However, because it is updated regularly, this update will take several days to be accepted by all ZenFone 3 Zoom users via Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) notification. Users are advised to check the System Update menu to find out the availability of this new firmware.
