ASUS rolls out India 6z (aka ZenFone 6) software update

ASUS is on the cusp of starting sales (June 26) of the “6z” which is the ZenFone 6 under a different name in India. We’ve posted a story about the “zen” trademark dispute that has ASUS renaming products temporarily while they wait for their next court date in India. Until that time, ASUS shall remain zenless. The news here is that the ASUS 6z will hit the ground running with a latest and greatest update available when you unbox your phone for the first time in India.

So as for this update, it bring significant fixes and tweaks to the 6z which have been previously discussed in this same update for the WW model of ZenFone 6.  The most notable update is the “Super Night Mode” on the ultra-wide camera. This was highly desired by ZenFone 6 users and with thanks to ASUS they brought it to the phone quite quickly. This update also brings with it 4K video recording at 60FPS with the option of using EIS. You won’t find that in the release notes but up until this software update, when you chose 4K video recording at 60FPS you would not see the EIS on/off slider. An astute YouTuber noticed that the option was missing and then he recognized when ASUS had added the feature in this update. If ASUS won’t disclose full release notes, leave it to the ZenFone 6 community to fill in the blanks.
