ASUS confirmed that a few of its devices will be receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, back in November last year. Unfortunately, no timeline was mentioned at that point for the updates. But now we have a timeline to speak of, which is Q2 of 2016 (April to June). The company also added three smartphones in the list, which are going to be updated to Android 6.0 in this timeline.

"Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition"

The following ASUS ZenFone models will receive the Android M (6.0) upgrade in Q2 of 2016:

PadFone S (PF500KL)
ZenFone 2 (ZE550ML, ZE551ML)
ZenFone 2 Deluxe (ZE551ML)
ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition (ZE551ML)
ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE500KG, ZE500KL, ZE550KL, ZE551KL, ZE600KL, ZE601KL)
ZenFone Selfie (ZD551KL)
ZenFone Max (ZC550KL)
ZenFone Zoom (ZX551ML)

The company also said what to expect when the Android M update is installed on an ASUS smartphone: “Google Messenger, Calendar, and Gmail apps will automatically be included with the Android M update. These apps will replace three ZenUI apps—ASUS Messenger, ASUS Mail and ASUS Calendar—as the default apps in the Android M version of ZenUI if you restore to factory settings after the update.”
