Nevertheless, the new update includes fixes for the Wi-Fi hotspot, status bar, scheduled charging, and Nintendo Switch Wi-Fi connectivity issues.
It is good to see that the OEM is fine-tuning the latest OS update for the ZenFone 6 this early after the stable rollout.
This is simply because Android OEMs usually take some time to release such incremental updates unless a major issue occurs.
That said, there are still a lot of devices in Asus’s portfolio that are yet to bag the latest OS update.
So, we will keep tracking the development of Android 11 and will provide more details once new information becomes available.
