Asus 6Z Starts Receiving New Software Updates in India
Asus 6Z, the company’s flagship phone that was launched in India last year with an innovative motorised camera, has already received its Android 10 update in November. Now, the Asus 6Z, or the Asus Zenfone 6 as it is known in other markets, is also receiving its latest software update with firmware version 17.1810.2003.144 that brings the March security patch for Android as well as Jio Wi-Fi calling (VoWiFi) support in India. The update is rolling out over-the-air (OTA) and can also be downloaded manually from Asus’s Zentalk forum.
In addition to the above, the new update for Asus 6Z also adds a pop-up confirmation dialog whenever a third party application running in the background requests access to the front camera. Apart from these, the Asus 6Z update also optimises system stability, according to the changelog, which also mentions VoWiFi for a carrier in Sweden.
The Asus 6Z update announcement was made on Asus ZenTalk, the official forum for Asus users.
Here’s the Asus 6Z firmware version 17.1810.2003.144 official change log

There is a dual camera setup on the rear that uses motors in order to rotate to act as the selfie camera. The Asus 6Z is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of inbuilt storage.
