Asus announces a list of devices that will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in April-June

Asus is sluggish when it comes to rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, and it seems like the status won’t improve for another few months. The company announced a list of devices that will get the Marshmallow update, the post mentions the timeline to be Q2 (April-June). The list comprises of expected Zenfone 2015 smartphones along with PadFone S transformer.

Well, this is not the first time that Asus published such a list on its forum. Back in November, the company outed a similar list and the only addition to that list when compared to the new one, are the ZenFone Max and ZenFone Selfie smartphones.

Here’s the full complete list of devices with their respective model numbers:

As expected, Asus has not revealed any other information such as the changelog. However, we know what changes the update will bring along. These changes would be the addition of Google’s Gmail, Calendar, and Messenger instead of Asus’ own ZenUI apps mail, Messenger app, and Calendar. For those who like Asus’ apps better, then they can download them from the Play Store.

Asus is not the only company that’s killing its pre-loaded OEM apps in favor of Google’s apps. In a similar move, Samsung also killed a variety of homegrown pre-loaded apps at the time of Galaxy S6. LG also went through software overhaul with its latest G5. We hope that Asus speeds up its update roll-out timeline, or else, it might have to suffer a dent in its user base.
