Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 has received a new software update that brings the August 2018 Android security patch. The update is rolling out in batches as a firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) package. Notably, the latest update comes weeks after Asus started selling the ZenFone Max Pro M1 6GB RAM variant in India.
With the arrival of the August Android security patch, the update majorly addresses a list of security issues and flaws that Google fixed earlier this month. A post on Asus ZenTalk forums states that alongside the August Android security patch, the update improves the NFC function for Google Pay and other compatible apps. It is worth noting here that the Indian version of the ZenFone Max Pro M1 doesn’t have NFC support. The forum post also highlights that the update fixes Myanmar Zawgyi language issues.
As we mentioned, the FOTA update is rolling out in batches and is designed for all the ZenFone Max Pro M1 variants, including the top-end 6GB RAM model as well as the affordable 3GB RAM version. You can check its availability by going to Settings > System > System update.
