Asus has pushed a new software update to the ZenFone 6. It contains an updated security patch level - albeit only up to November 2019 - as well as some new UI tweaks and bug fixes. It is intended for the global and Indian (or 6z) versions of this phone.

Asus recently upgraded the ZenFone 6 (or 6z) to Android 10. Now, this phone has another new software update on top of that. Known as firmware version 17.1810.1911.110, it confers the November 2019 security patch, despite having been released on December 20, 2019. However, it may also offer some solutions for issues users may have had with this device.

For example, the new update now allows ZenFone 6/6z users to conduct phone calls while also using a wired headset that lacks a microphone. Its owners can also now reduce a ringtone's volume on an incoming call.  The ZenFone 6's full panel of cameras, found in an innovative flip-action module, are also now controllable from its app's zoom-slider.

Asus has also added support for 6 additional Indian languages (Kannada, Tamil, Bengali, Telugu, Gujarati, and Malayalam) to the 6z. The phone also now has updated APN settings and a boot animation. The OEM has noted that it is doing its usual rollout-by-batch-number thing; therefore, some users may need to be patient before their OTA notification to download the new update shows up on their 2019 ZenFone.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
