The ASUS ZenFone 3.0 Deluxe is getting Android 8.0 Oreo starting today, ASUS confirmed in a forum post. One of our tipsters gave us the heads-up that his device was downloading the update earlier this morning.

Hands-on with the ASUS ZenFone 5Z and 5 series: Shameless notch-envy

ASUS' Android phones might slide under the radar for most, but the company's new ZenFone 5 series probably won't. The company has had some trouble historically trying to penetrate the US phone market to any great depth—perhaps a result of its crowded, sometimes confusing product portfolio—but nonetheless it persists. Some of its phones have even been pretty good. But now that the wraps have been taken off its latest line of phones, it seems like ASUS has found a successful way to attract the attention it wanted: by copying the iPhone X's notch.

[Update: New colors] ASUS ZenFone 5 Lite leaks with 18:9 display and quad cameras

It seems like Asus loves to create a muddled, crowded mobile product portfolio. While this strategy might work in the PC hardware space (where the Taiwanese company has plenty of respect, including from me), it just confuses and frustrates smartphone consumers. We already saw a possible leak a few days ago about one model in Asus' upcoming ZenFone 5 line, even though the ZenFone 4 family is still quite new, and now Evan Blass has shown off an image of the ZenFone 5 Lite over on Twitter.

Android 8.0 Oreo rolling out to ASUS ZenFone 3

Back in August, ASUS announced that the entire lineup of ZenFone 3 and 4 devices would receive updates to Android 8.0 Oreo. However, the company's only promise was that every phone would have Oreo by the second half of 2018. The ZenFone 4 received the update last month, and now the ZenFone 3 is getting it.

ASUS Zenfone V review: A very cheap Verizon exclusive that gets the job done

Asus has been busy in 2017, but amongst the madness that is the Zenfone 4 family, the company took some time to partner with Verizon to launch another device exclusive to Big Red. This is the Zenfone V, a phone that bears some resemblance to one of Samsung's older phones, but it packs 2016 flagship specs into a small, manageable frame all for just $240 ($10/month).

TWRP adds support for Xiaomi Mi A1 and some Zenfone 4 models

Team Win Recovery Project, or TWRP for short, is just about the only custom recovery worth using in 2017. It does everything most people need, works on a massive number of devices, and can be themed. The last time we covered TWRP, it added support for the Pixel 2 and a few other phones. Now the recovery is officially available for some of ASUS' new phones, and Xiaomi's first Android One device.

ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe review: Buy a OnePlus 3T instead

Budget flagships are all the rage these days. After all, why would anyone pay $769 for something like a Google Pixel XL when similar or only marginally worse performance can be had from a $439 OnePlus 3T? The category has come a seriously long way since the Nexus 4 first pioneered it, largely thanks to loads of new entrants in the past few years from both new and storied nameplates.
