The latest in line to receive the Marshmallow updates are the ASUS Zenfone Zoom and ASUS Zenfone Selfie. These two devices join the various variants of the Zenfone 2 Laser and the Zenfone Max to enjoy the latest flavor of Android.

Certain ASUS apps are also replaced by their generic Google version, for example, Asus Email, Asus Calendar, Asus Messaging won’t be preloaded in the latest firmware, and users will have to use Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Messenger for the relevant services.
