With the stable build of Android 12 released by Google, phone makers have started announcing the Android 12 rollout schedule for their devices, with the latest announcement coming from Asus.
The Zenfone 8 is the first smartphone in line to get the Android 12 stable update, slated to roll out in December, which isn’t surprising since the company has already released a few Android 12 beta builds for the smartphone.

The Zenfone 8 Flip will also receive the stable Android 12 in December, followed by the ROG Phone 5 and ROG Phone 5s in Q1 2022, meaning anytime between January and March.
The ROG Phone 3 and Zenfone 7, on the other hand, will be upgraded with Android 12 in H1 2022, which means the update will arrive anytime between January and June.
In a press note sent to the media, Asus said that the stable update “inherits the major functional changes introduced in the official version of Android 12” while also including Asus’ battery and performance management features.
Additionally, the Android 12 stable build for the Zenfone series will come with ZenUI-specific features, providing “easier navigation, streamlined control panels, increased visibility for better control and more customization options.”
