Asus Android 12 update tracker: List of eligible or supported devices, release date, and more
Asus is one of the only few OEMs that release only a handful of smartphones into the market every year.
This strategy of streamlining its portfolio should have resulted in the company being able to release software updates quicker to eligible devices.
The ROG Phone 3 is yet to get the stable update and Asus is still evaluating the possibility of bringing Android 11 to the ZenFone 5z.
Further, Google is expected to share more details regarding the upcoming Android version in its Google I/O event scheduled for May 18 – 20.
Asus Android 12 release date
So if history repeats itself, we can expect to see Asus begin beta testing Android 12 around two months after Google rolls out the beta update.
Speaking of which, according to Google’s official Android 12 schedule, it will begin seeding the beta update sometime in May and is expected to release the stable update towards the end of August or in September.
The stable Android 12 update for Asus smartphones should go live by the end of the year and the ROG Phone 5 series or the ZenFone 8 series (expected later in the year) should be among the first to get it.
List of eligible devices
Asus usually promises at least 2 major OS updates for its mid-range and flagship smartphones. And since it has been out of the budget segment for a while now, there aren’t any budget-friendly models listed to get the new OS.
That said, those Asus devices that come with Android 10 or Android 11 pre-installed should get the update to Android 12.
So we’ve put together a list of such phones. Check it out below:
– Asus ROG Phone 5
– Asus ROG Phone 5 Pro
– Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate
– Asus ROG Phone 3
– Asus ROG Phone 3 Strix
– Asus ZenFone 7
– Asus ZenFone 7 Pro
Of course, this shouldn’t be misconstrued for an official list from Asus because it isn’t. So there’s a chance that the company may decide against releasing Android 12 for either of these phones.
As for the skin, Asus may release Zen UI 8 in the coming months which may also be the skin that it uses when it rolls out Android 12.
However, since there isn’t much clarity on the matter, we’d suggest taking this information with a pinch of salt.
Whatever the case, we’ll update the tracker if and when there are any developments regarding Android 12 for Asus smartphones.
Note: We’ll add the tracker table to this article once Asus starts seeding the Android 12 beta or stable update to any device.
