ASUS ROG Phone II gets Android 11

Following the introduction of its closed beta program in September, ASUS has begun pushing Android 11 to the two-year-old ROG Phone II. The update comes a year after the phone was upgraded to Android 10. It’s worth noting that the ROG Phone II was released in 2019 with Android 9 Pie preinstalled, so it wasn’t an awful wait for ASUS.

The update also includes many of Android 11’s new features, such as the system’s notification bar design, a built-in screen recorder, improved privacy features, and more. Of course, it comes with a long-awaited UI upgrade. For a full list of changes.

On the other hand, numerous apps including the armoury crate hub, game wizard, file management, clock, picture library, and various others have been updated. ASUS also introduced a new feature that allows you to keep Bluetooth enabled even if your phone is in airplane mode.

However, Android 12 has already started to rollout on some of the finest Android phones, including the ASUS Zenfone 8 series, which is a little too late for the ROG Phone II.

Open the Settings app on your phone and go to About > System update. The changelog, however, is only available on ASUS’ Chinese website, with no mention of it on the company’s English site.

It’s possible that you won’t receive the new features for a while after your phone is updated. If you don’t want to wait that long, XDA Developers provides the OTA (over-the-air) update.
