Asus ROG Phone II June update brings VoLTE support, fixes launcher crash, video recording, NFC, & more bugs

Asus has a new software update for the ROG Phone II rolling out over the air. The new firmware tags along a flurry of bug fixes, performance enhancements, and new features for folks in Japan.

The ROG Phone 3 is expected to grace the smartphone market in the coming weeks, probably in July 2020. Following the highly impressive ROG Phone 2, lots of expectations are on the new kid on the block, but not much is out there regarding what’s cooking.

Despite the looming arrival of its successor, the ROG Phone 2 is still being kept in the best shape possible through regular software updates. The latest OTA bumps the firmware version to 17.0240.2004.9.


There aren’t many new features in the latest ROG Phone II June update. Matter of fact, only those in Japan get a new “Neplayer” app for high-resolution music playback while Sweden and France get VoLTE and VoWiFi functions. Below is the full changelog.

Fixed issue where Video Recording failed when connected to BT

The rolling-out ROG Phone 2 June update is airborne and typically, such updates take days before hitting all units. You’ll have to remain patient as you wait for the OTA download notification to arrive.

Since the ROG Phone 2 already received the stable Android 10 update, this firmware is based on the new OS. And being the first major OS upgrade, expect the official Asus Android 11 update to come to this handset later on, probably in 2021.
