Last year’s Asus ROG Phone was the brand’s first entry in the gaming smartphone category. Even though Android 9 Pie was already available on several devices at the time of its release, the ROG Phone launched with Android 8.1 Oreo.
Now, the ROG Phone is finally getting a taste of Pie, just as other manufacturers are pushing their Android 10 updates. The new firmware comes with the lengthy v16.0410.1910.91 model number. It’s an official OTA update and is being rolled out in stages so it should be arriving in more regions soon.
