Asus ZenFone Max M2 Android 10 update allegedly not in plans yet, ROG Phone II stable version may delay

Asus is reportedly not in the mood to add the ZenFone Max M2 Android 10 update plans onto its software update schedule, at least not for the moment. This is according to an alleged Asus France employee, who has caught our attention with his tweets.

The company recently released the new OS to the ZenFone Max Pro M1 and Max Pro M2. Owners of the former thought they’ve received the stable version, only for Asus India to spoil the fun by revealing that its a beta version.


The ZenFone Max Pro M2 is also receiving a similar beta update, meaning not every owner of the device can install it for now. So, when does the stable update arrive?

According to Olivier VONGXAY, an alleged Asus France employee who goes by the Twitter handle @OlivierVongxay, the duo will receive their stable updates to Android 10 in February 2020.


Now, in more recent developments, the same person says Asus has no confirmed plans yet for the ZenFone Max M2 Android 10 update. Before you start throwing tantrums, note that this doesn’t mean the device won’t be upgraded to Android 10.

He further suggests that things could change in the future, urging his followers to stay tuned for more news if he gets it. Of course, we have no way to verify how true this is.


The fact that the ZenFone Max M2 got updated from Oreo to Pie suggests that the future looks bleak for the device. The device has already picked up its one and perhaps only major OS upgrade, so Android 10 update is unlikely.

ROG Phone II Android 10 stable update may delay

In his Asus Android 10 timeline tweet, VONGXAY also noted that ROG Phone II would receive the update in January 2020. With the OS having yet to begin rolling out, he now claims Asus encountered bugs that need to be fixed before the stable version rolls out.


Apparently, the time it takes to fix the bugs could mean the wait for the ROG Phone 2 Android 10 update could take a little longer, but there is no defined timeline. So far, the ROG Phone 2 has already received six beta updates of the new OS, so it shouldn’t be long before the stable version arrives.
