Asus has announced its plan to upgrade various smartphones from its PadFone series to the latest version of Android; 4.4 KitKat. The update will also bring the latest Asus Zen UI customised for its devices.
So lets talk when and who’s getting the update. The Asus PadFone Infinity, PadFone Infinity 2 and PadFone 2 are getting the KitKat update with Asus Zen+ UI. The Android 4.4 KitKat is currently under development for these three devices. According to the plan, the Asus PadFone 2 and the Asus PadFone Infinity will get the KitKat update in Q2, 2014 while the PadFone Infinity 2 will get the update in Q3, 2014. There is no word from the company about the update plan for other PadFone devices such as mini PadFone series. We hope Asus considers other devices too, since Android 4.4 KitKat is very hardware efficient and even lower end hardware can support it.
