Verizon ZenFone V live gets Android 8.0 Oreo update

The ASUS Zenfone V Live at Verizon is getting bumped up to Android 8.0 Oreo. The update arrives as software version V15.0405.1808.30 and weirdly includes only the August 2018 security patch, not the September one.

The ASUS Zenfone V Live launched back in 2017 with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and now Verizon is offering users the option to update their handsets to Android 8.0 Oreo.

The new build brings all the goodies that Oreo is known for including Picture-in-Picture mode, App categories, Text Field Form Autofill, as well as revamped notifications.

The carrier recommends ensuring that your battery is fully charged on your device before starting the process of downloading the update. You should also connect the phone to a stable Wi-Fi network or verify it has a strong Verizon Wireless network connection.

It’s been a while since the device hit retail shelves and Verizon is finally offering an upgrade in software experience. But if you’re wondering whether your smartphone will get next update in line, Android 9 Pie, we’re afraid the answer the Zenfone V Live is not eligible to receive it.

On the other hand, ASUS’ newer phones like the Zenfone 5Z will indeed get updated, at some point. Hopefully soon.
