ASUS ROG Phone 3 launched last year with super specs to quench the momentum of smartphone gamers. So far the phone has been surprising even after the introduction of the new ROG Phone 5 with one caveat: the phone still runs Android 10. If you are a ROG Phone 3, ASUS is rolling out the Android 11 update for your device. The gaming phone is late to join the party, but it’s better late than never.
Considering that ROG Phone 3 is one of the best gaming phones to own, most devices released in the same time period have already been updated to Android 11, so a long-awaited update for this ROG model. Fortunately, ASUS has finally started rolling out the Android 11 firmware update for the device.
ASUS has not made any official announcement regarding the availability of the operating system update. However, according to the Change Log Shared by XDA developers, the firmware update makes noticeable changes to the ZenUI interface with revamped built-in apps.
Also, the update brings everything to be expected with Android 11. We won’t go into the full changelog, but to mention that the few notable changes include improved security and one-time permission control, the introduction of chat bubbles, and Bluetooth. Support when airplane mode is on.
The firmware update comes with software version WW-18.0410.2105.133 and weighs around 2.72GB. You can access the update by going to Settings> System> System updates on your phone. If you are in the region where the update for Android 11 was rolled out, your ROG Phone 3 will display the notification.
