The ZenFone 6 is Asus’ first-gen flip-up camera flagship phone. However, despite this, it is only just receiving the latest stable Android update. This version of ZenUI involves new features and the removal of some bloatware.
It upgrades the phone to the latest version of ZenUI, (obviously) which includes a streamlined app drawer and icon-management system. It also now supports the new gestures in third-party launchers.
Upgrading to Android 11 on the ZenFone 6 also requires a back-up of all user data, especially if the user wants to downgrade back to the previous version. It also gets rid of Avast scanning software that had been on the phone, as well as some features such as ZenUI Help.
Unfortunately, the update is only available in the Taiwanese market at present. In addition, Asus has announced that it will only hit so many users at a time, possibly to manage the risk of major bugs prior to a global roll-out.

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.
