The EIS function was previously spotted hidden inside the Snapdragon camera app that the smartphone ships with globally. It was possible to enable the feature by opening the camera application and heading to camera settings, tapping on the hamburger icon on the left side. Inside settings, the option for redeye reductions allowed for unlocking EIS by tapping on it multiple times. While that was a temporary way to enable the feature, the FOTA update enables EIS on Zenfone Max Pro M1 permanently.

Apart from enabling EIS function on the 6GB RAM variant, the FOTA update for Zenfone Max Pro M1 also brings system stability and upgrades the security patch to September 2018. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 is the only device to run near stock Android version and the company has promised to release Android 9 Pie update by the end of this year.
