If you are Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe owner, we have a good news for you. The company finally starts rolling Android Oreo update for the ZenFone 3 Deluxe. Last week, the company officially confirmed Android Oreo will be rolled out for Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom, Deluxe and Laser by the end of the March.
At that time, the company didn't confirm the exact release date but the good thing is the company starts the update process with the ZenFone 3 Deluxe.
