The Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 is the successor of the popular ZenFone Max Pro M1 that brought Asus into the limelight. However, it doesn’t ship with Android Pie despite the fact that it is pure vanilla Android. But that’s changing today as the Taiwanese phone maker has kickstarted the official beta program for the handset.
If you own a unit of the ZenFone Max Pro M2, you’ll have to share your IMEI, Serial Number and current firmware number to Asus to enable the beta test and sign up for the program via this link. It seems Asus will be selecting users so this isn’t an open beta for now. You’ll have to be active in giving feedback to their teams after being in the program. Since this is a beta, you should also be aware that there could be bugs that hinder the ideal experience that is under a stable ROM.
Other competitors such as Realme are still yet to roll out Android Pie OTAs for any of their budget devices and Xiaomi is in the process of testing the update for a number of their recently released devices like the Redmi Note 6 Pro, Redim 6 Pro, Redmi Note 5 Pro, and a few others.
