[Updated] Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 Android 10 update incoming, alleged 'Asus-side' May patch changelog indicates

This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on June 3) follows:

Asus should begin rolling out the stable ZenFone Max Pro M1 Android 10 update in India and across the rest of the globe in the coming days or weeks for that matter.

The company started beta-testing the firmware in late January. By now, ZenFone Max Pro M1 owners expected that Android 10 would be available for their handsets.

Instead, the Taiwanese company pushed a Pie-based May security update towards the end of last month to the dismay of many device owners.

Apparently, the changelog (screenshot above) doesn’t say everything the May security update does to the ZenFone Max Pro M1 handset. But someone has reportedly decrypted the server-side changelog to reveal even more interesting details about the firmware.

Fished from a Telegram channel known as Amack Port Project (@amackPp), the alleged ‘Asus-side’ changelog claims the May update is also meant to prepare the way for the ZenFone Max Pro M1 Android 10 update.

● Updated Android security patch May 2020
● Update Apn list
● Prepare for Android 10 Stable India
● Fixed user can’t hear low frequency sounds issue

There is no way to ascertain this claim, but given how long the device has been testing Android 10, it’s about time the stable version rolled out.

If anything, this could happen in the next few days or weeks for that matter, especially if the above ‘Asus-side’ changelog materializes. We will have our eyes on the story and bring you updates as and when we have them.
