Asus manages to get Android 11 on the ROG Phone 2 just one year after publication

Tech Highlights:

  • Software version 18.0210.2111.160 started rolling as an OTA yesterday and should get to all ROG Phone 2 owners in a week. In addition to many of Android 11’s native features, Asus has also brought about more unique changes such as being able to keep Bluetooth on while in Airplane Mode, revamping the system update fetch logic, and giving a new coat of paint to proprietary apps such as the Armoury Crate gaming hub.

  • Triage appears to be the word of the game when it comes to Android OS updates. The speed with which you receive that version increase is largely determined by whether or not your phone’s manufacturer is called “Google.” It’s no wonder, then, that Asus is only now releasing Android 11 for the ROG Phone 2. The business initiated a limited beta for the new software in late September, according to XDA-Developers, and has only officially notified users in its Chinese-language forums.

The ROG Phone 2, clocking in at just over 2 years old and booting with Android 9 Pie, is receiving Android 11 at the same time Android 12 is spreading to many devices. It’s also worthy to mention that the company has not mentioned anything about this update to its English ZenTalk forums. That said, you can install what has been dubbed the “Taiwan-only” firmware as hosted through XDA. Jules joined the Android Police team in 2019. Before that, he was at Pocketnow.
