Asus starts pushing out Android 8.0 Oreo for ZenFone 4

Asus has just announced that it has started the roll-out of Android 8.0 Oreo update for its newest flagship, the ZenFone 4. The update is pushed out FOTA (firmware over the air), but if you do no get it, you can manually look for it by heading to Settings / About / System Update.

The update was released on December 29, so it may take up to a week to arrive on all ZenFone 4 devices. Be patient if it doesn't show up right away, but you can try to manually pull the update in a few days.

There are many changes included in the update, such as a more friendly setting UI design, a fully redesigned emoji set, as well as adaptive icons for consistent icons. Also, after the update, you'll notice some important changes to the launcher.

Obviously, picture-in-picture mode, autofill, smart text selection, and notification dots are all there as well. It's also worth mentioning Asus ZenFone 4 users will now be able to install apps from unknown sources: “hostile downloader apps can't operate without permission; users now permit the installation of APKs per-source.”
