Our favourite gaming smartphone, ASUS ROG Phone, came out last year around June and it has been getting quite the reputation it deserves. However, we've been waiting for its Android update as Android 10 is already out on several smartphones. Finally, we have gotten a source saying that the device will be getting its Android Pie update soon after a long while.
The ASUS ROG Phone came with Android 8.1 out of the box, while most of the other phones that were released at that time have already been running on Android 9. The new update for the device comes with the model number v16.0410.1910.91. It is also an OTA update so it’s supposed to be rolling out to more regions soon.
Here is an official changelog of the device:
