Asus flagship phone the 6Z, also known as the Zenfone 6 has begun getting the Android 10 update. If you happen to use the phone, expect to get an update notification soon.
Here is everything new on the update:
Dark Theme: Android 10 now offers an ‘Android official’ full system-wide dark theme across the User Interface.
Smart App support on messages – This new feature suggests set of actions, like opening Maps if an address is sent, or Calendar if it recognizes a date, and eliminates basically the need to copy text links and paste it in the appropriate app manually.
Fully gesture-based UI navigation – You can now completely do away with the onscreen navigation keys for a more dynamic gesture-based UI navigation. It also helps apps occupy the full size of the display.
Better Privacy and Security – Android 10 brings in the latest measures to uphold your privacy and security, and will offer faster security updates to your device in the future.
Updated Google Play services –
The ASUS 6z Android 10 update also upgrades the Google Play services for better app experiences.
In case you want to downgrade the software back to Android 9 for some reason, you could download the downgrade firmware files from ASUS’s support webpage.
Do remember that a downward update will reset the phone completely and erase all your files, so if you decide to switch from Android 10 back to Android 9, ensure to back-up your data before proceeding.
