Once the Android Oreo update rolls out to the ZenFone 4, users will get to take advantage of picture-in-picture mode, notification channels, notification dots, smart text selection, and much more. To learn all there is to know about Android 8, be sure to check out our Oreo review right here.
Less than a week ago, screenshots of Oreo running on the Asus ZenFone 3 leaked on the internet, suggesting that the older device might also receive its update sometime soon. We will of course keep you updated when either of these devices begin receiving their Oreo updates.
