A couple of months ago, a rumored post suggested the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the all latest devices in the Zenfone series. At that time, it is also mentioned that 2014 launched ZenFone 4, ZenFone 5, and ZenFone 6 will be receiving the Marshmallow update in the second phase, but the latest post on the forum hasn’t mentioned about these devices.
Recently, the leaked document confirmed the Marshmallow update for the high-end Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series devices. Talking about the official Marshmallow update, we may not find major changes in UI since Asus has its own UI called ZenUI. But the major additions will be Doze mode, app permissions, extended MicroSd card support and native API’s for fingerprint sensors.
