Asus India has just announced the rollout of a new update for its Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2. The company revealed that a new FOTA update with version number IN-15.2016.1811.177 is currently rolling out. The company also added the official changelog of the update to make it easier for users to see the changes in the update.

This is the first update for the device after the company launched the device in India about two weeks back.

Last but not least, Asus has updated the Android security patch to November 2018. That said, the latest version of Android security patch is December 2018 with the January 2019 security patch days away from the launch.

Similar to almost all software updates, it is likely that Asus will roll out this update in a phased, incremental manner. This means that the update will only reach a very small number of users in the beginning and then later reach the rest of the devices. This is to ensure that no serious system bugs ship out with the update.

Most companies follow this rollout strategy so that they can keep an eye out for any undetected bugs. In case, the small user base reports any problems, the company can easily stop the rollout of the update and ensure that the faulty update is not rolled out to all devices in the market. So, if you don t find the update immediately then don t worry as the update is likely to reach your device in the coming days if not hours.

To recap, the device comes with a 6.26-inch FHD+ display with Snapdragon 660 SoC, up to 6GB RAM and up to 64GB internal storage and 5,000mAh battery. The device comes with a dedicated microSD card support and runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with near stock experience. Asus has added a dual camera setup with 12-megapixel primary and 5-megapixel secondary sensor for depth sensing and a 13-megapixel camera sensor on the front for selfies.
