Asus recently began rolling out Android Nougat OS updates for its smartphones under its ZenFone 3 series. The latest to join the line is the ZenFone 3 Max ZC520TL. The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M) is also receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The update version for the ZenFone 3 Max (ZC520TL) is 14.01.1705 and for the ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M) its version 14.0210.1706.20.
The update for the ZenFone 3 Max (ZC520TL) was posted on Asus’ ZenTalk Forums, as reported by Android Police. In the release note, ‘update regulatory information’ is mentioned. The particular thread is however not accessible now and Asus must have taken it down. This could possibly be due to a mistake since the other variant of the ZenFone 3 Max with model number ZC553KL received Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Asus had bumped the Android OS version straight from 7.0 to 7.1 for the ZenFone 3 Max (ZC553KL) in May with update version 14.0200.1704.119.
