Asus ZenPad 8.0 Nougat update rolling out with software version 5.3.7

The Asus Zenpad 8.0 is getting updated to Android 7.0 Nougat. Yes, you read that right. The year old tablet from Asus is getting a new software update. This is the Z380M variant, which was released in May 2016.

The older 2015 Zenpad 8.0 is still and will continue to be stuck on Android Marshmallow. The newer variant is now getting a new update with software version 5.3.7, which brings Android Nougat to the tablet.

The update is currently rolling out as an OTA, and it also installs the latest Android security patch. There’s also a bunch of other bug fixes and improvements available in the update. If you’ve got the update, do go ahead and install it right away.

Once again, this Nougat update is for the Asus Zenpad 8.0 Z380M model, so make sure you know the model number of your device before getting all excited. This model has 2GB of RAM, a Mediatek MT8163 processor, a 5MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera, and a 4000 mAh battery.

  1. With functions like multi window on nougat, tablets can be benefitted a lot. Considering how bad tablet software support is in general compared to phones and how very few of them get frequent updates, this is great by ASUS to release the latest of what android has to offer to zenpads. Although a real wonder would be if the 2015 zenpad also got the update which it didn’t, this is still very positive.

  3. Apply the update if you have no fear of reboot loops and enjoy factory resets; I am looking at the second on Z380M … from the first rollout and the most recent.
    An old saying has it that the first one was the fault of Asus and the second time must be my fault for thinking theySURELY could not fail TWICE in a row on vanilla tablet installs with all apps from Google store with valid keys and all up-to-date. Ahem.
    As for “catch of the day,” will that be
    Caveat emptor or Carpe diem ??
