Asus is now rolling out the latest firmware update for its Zenfone Max Pro M1 smartphone. The new patch - OPM1.WW_Phone-15.2016.1901.339-20190108 - updates the device’s Android security patch to January 2019 and also optimises system stability. Asus says that the OTA update is being rolled out in stages so, it could take some time before it is made available for every handset. While there is no detailed information on what system level optimisations the patch implements on the Max Pro M1, the January security patch mitigates some framework, system, kernel and Qualcomm components vulnerabilities. One can head over to their phone’s System Update option in Settings to manually check for the update.
