In a recent move, the Asus Zenfone 5Z (review) has received an OTA update that is built to deliver excellence. The smartphone has received an update with the firmware version 188.8.131.52. This update brings the Android security patch for April 2019. Besides this, it also improves the sound quality and enhances the start-up speed of the device.
