Shortly after we reported about the new ZenFone 4 smartphones that ASUS unveiled, the company has also released more information about future updates. All smartphones from the ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 4 will be updated to the Android O, with ZenUI 4.0 on top of it.

The good news is that the company will include less bloatware with Android O updates. Instead of the 35 pre-installed apps on ZenUI 3.5, ZenUI 4.0 will only have 13 pre-installed apps, which is over 60% drop. The ZenUI 4.0 will also have some new features such as Twin Apps and bookmarking app Page Marker, and is expected to arrive by the second half of 2018.
