Asus has finally started releasing the Android 9.0 Pie update to the ZenFone Max Pro M1, Max Pro M2, and Max M2. Previously, the company had confirmed that it’ll bring the Pie update to these handsets by April 15th, and now here it is.

Currently, the update is reported to be rolling out in India. Other regions might join in the coming days. The Pie update on the ZenFone Max Pro (ZB601KL) comes with version 16.2017.1903.050 and brings the updated security patch.

A few weeks ago, Asus came up with the Android Pie roadmap for its devices, but no exact timeframe was revealed. So we can’t say anything about the devices left for the update. Maybe the update might start in the coming days.
