Asus rolls out ZenUI 4.0 for ZenFone 4 Max, but Android 8.0 Oreo is still MIA

According to Asus, it will take about one week for the update to propagate to all ZenFone 4 Max devices, so if you don't get it immediately, you should wait patiently or head to Settings / About / System update to force the download on your phone.
