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.

Asus is in the process of updating some of its more recent phones to Android 11 via closed beta programs. Now, this project has resulted in a stable build for the ZenFone 6.

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.
