Asus ZenFone Max M2 Android 10 stable update not ready as device bags another Pie-based security patch
Asus ZenFone Max M2 is among those devices that are still in line to get the Android 10 update.
While users of the ZenFone Max M2 have been waiting patiently, there is no word on when the OS update is going to arrive.
Now, the global, Indian, Russian, and Japanese variants of the device in question are getting another Android 9 Pie-based security update.
The security update brings along an updated APN list to all variants but the Japanese ZenFone Max M2 variant also gets Google Mobile Services update and Rakuten Mobile (MNO) VoLTE support.
Global, Indian, and Russian Asus ZenFone Max M2 variants
– Updated Android security patch
– Update APN
Japanese Asus ZenFone Max M2 variant
– Google Security Patch Update (October 5, 2020)
– Google mobile service updates
– Supports Rakuten Mobile (MNO) VoLTE
– Update APN list
The update version 16.2018.2010.76 is same for all variants but the security patch version is not provided for the global, Indian, and Russian ZenFone Max M2 variants.
However, looking at the release notes of the Japanese ZenFone Max M2 variant, it is safe to assume that the update offers the October security patch.
It is unclear when the Android 10 stable update will arrive for the said devices but we hope Asus releases the update before the year-end.
That said, we will keep tracking the development of Asus ZenFone Max M2 and will provide more details when new information becomes available.
