The first generation Asus ROG Phone is finally receiving the Android Pie update
Better late than never, or something like that. Buyers of the first-gen Asus ROG Phone are likely breathing out in relief right now, as their phones receive the Android Pie update...one whole year after the device went on sale.
The ROG Phone was unveiled in June and went on sale in October. It ran Android Oreo out of the box, since Pie hadn't been released by the time it was unveiled. Sadly, ever since then, it's been stuck on Oreo, and is now only just getting the Pie update.
The update brings a number of improvements and features, including Adaptive Brightness, Adaptive Battery, New notifications, Screen Recorder, local backup. Apps like Mobile Manager, File Manager, Clock, Calculator, Gallery, and Weather have all seen design revamps.
The rollout is staged, as the server sends out the OTA in batches. It will likely take a couple of days to get to all ROG Phone users.
