Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Asus Zenfone 4 released

Today, Asus has announced the long due Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Zenfone 4 through its official Twitter account. No further details or a change-log was provided by Asus. The Asus Zenfone 4, Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 6 were launched in July with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean onboard while the Asus Zenfone 4 A450CG was launched last month to compete with the popular Xiaomi Redmi 1S. Since then, Asus has been able to cross the 2 lakh sales mark for the Zenfone devices launched in India.

It’s sad to see that the higher priced devices like the Zenfone 5 and the Zenfone 6 are still running dated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean while Google is in the works to launch Android L pretty soon. Motorola has already promised that almost all its devices will be updated to Android L. Even Google’s Android One devices which were launched this month will get Android L soon after its public release.

Computer science engineer turned technology blogger. Following consumer electronics industry closely from 2006, he can now predict pretty much where the market is heading. He has a dream to own Android, Windows Phone and iOS smartphones all at the same time.
