ASUS ROG Phone 3 Android 11 update removed one-handed mode but it will be added via subsequent update, says mod

The ASUS ROG Phone 3 is hands down one of the best gaming smartphones to date. Released in July of 2020, the phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.

It was launched with Android 10 out of the box. In March this year, the company had rolled out the Android 11 beta update for ROG Phone 3 users.

Since then, ASUS ROG Phone 3 users have been waiting patiently for the stable version of Android 11.


Recently, ASUS released the stable version of Android 11 for the ASUS ROG Phone 3. However, the update is being rolled out in a phased manner.

It is currently available in Taiwan and will be released in other regions in the coming days.

The Android 11 update brings several new features and improvements such as improved performance, Chat Bubbles, updated UI design, and much more.


While the update seems to be safe, some users were quick to point out that the Android 11 update for the ROG Phone 3 removed the one-handed mode.

ASUS quickly acknowledged the issue and said they are planning to add one-handed mode to the ROG Phone 3 in a future update.

However, the company did not share an ETA about when the feature will come back.


@mars9012145000 Hello, we will add this feature back in a later software release, the exact version number will be notified again, or please pay attention to the contents of the update announcement, thank you
