Taiwanese brand ASUS had announced the ZenFone 4 series in August 2017. The flagship ZenFone 4 Pro was launched with Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system out of the box. It received the Android Oreo 8.0 update in March last year. The smartphone has now been spotted on the Geekbench benchmark database running Android 9.0 Pie, suggesting ASUS may roll out another major OS upgrade for the smartphone soon. It should be noted that the standard ZenFone 4 was also caught on Geekbench running Android 9.0 Pie last month.
ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro to Receive Android Pie Update Soon?
While ASUS has not released any official confirmation yet, the Geekbench listing does suggest the company may be testing the Pie update for the ZenFone 4 Pro internally. However, it does not confirm that an update to Android 9.0 Pie will be arriving soon. Since the ZenFone 4 Pro is a flagship-grade smartphone, it is certainly possible that it will be updated to Android Pie in the first half of the year. The ZenFone 4 Pro running Android Pie scored 1,916 points in the single-core test and 6,621 points in the multi-core test. Both the scores are on par with what the smartphone usually scores on Android Oreo, so the update appears to have been well optimized already.
The ZenFone 4 Pro features a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is powered by an octa-core 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.45 GHz with an Adreno 540 GPU. In the memory department, ZenFone 4 Pro packs 6GB of RAM and comes in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. At the rear, it sports a 12MP + 16MP dual-camera setup with 4-axis optical image stabilization and 2x optical zoom. On the front is an 8MP selfie snapper with an f/1.9 aperture. Other key features of the smartphone include a front-mounted fingerprint sensor, an IR blaster, USB Type-C port, stereo speakers, and a 3600mAh battery with fast charging support.
