Back in 2018, Asus launched its first-ever gaming smartphone dubbed ROG Phone. Since then, the company has kept on bringing new ROG smartphones every year. When it comes to the software update, Asus surely is not the brand that comes to your mind. Well, the Taiwanese company is now rolling out the latest Android 11 update to its ROG Phone 3 smartphone.
For those who’re unaware, the ROG Phone 3 was launched last year with Android 10. The smartphone uses the company’s own ROG UI unlike the ZenUI on other non-gaming Asus smartphones.
Asus ROG Phone 3 receives Android 11 update!
Asus has now uploaded a new firmware update file on its official website for the ROG Phone 3 smartphone. The new software carries the build version as WW-18.0410.2105.133 and has a whopping 2.72GB download size. That makes sense considering it’s a major software update. Considering the size, you might want to download the software update using stable WiFi connectivity.
It is worth noting that the update is rolling out only in the company’s home country i.e. Taiwan. With that said, that should change in the coming weeks or months as Asus might bring the update to more markets. If the rollout in Taiwan goes well, that should happen sooner than we expect it to be.
What’s confusing is the fact that the changelog of the firmware update mentions a new and improved ZenUI. After updating your smartphone, you would be able to enjoy the all-new features that are the highlight of the Android 11 software. If you own the device and reside in Taiwan, then you might have already received the update notification. Alternatively, you can manually update your smartphone by finding the Software Update option in the Settings app.
