Asus recently published a list of its devices that are slated to receive the latest Android 9 Pie update this year. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 was one of the handsets on the list and it seems like the company is making good on its promise. In a tweet, Asus announced that the Android Pie Beta Program is now official for the Max Pro M1 and users can now enrol and try out the beta build of the latest Android flavour. One can apply for the beta program here but should note that beta builds are usually buggy and are not recommended to be flashed on your daily driver. Additionally, on the beta program’s registration page, the company says it won’t provide downgrade service for beta power users, “unless beta power users would like to quit the beta user program.”
One should also note that there are some requirements to participate in the Android Pie Beta program. One would, of course, need to own a ZenFone Max Pro M1 handset. They will also need to provide information that includes IMEI, Serial Number(SN), and the Current Firmware information for the beta test setting. The user needs to be used to the Android OS, which shouldn’t be a problem for an Android phone owner, and be able to read and provide feedback in English. Those who sign up for the Beta Power User Program will get to know if they are selected via email.

As we mentioned earlier, Asus has published a list of its devices that are slated to soon be updated to Android 9 Pie. It includes phones like the ROG Phone, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, ZenFone 4 Selfie, ZenFone 4 Max and more. It should be noted that while the Zenfone 5Z and Max Pro M2 are included in the list, the two devices are already running on the latest Android Pie OS. The Zenfone 5Z is on the stable Android 9 Pie build while the beta Android Pie has been rolled out for the Max Pro M2.
