Android 8.0 Oreo rolling out to ZenFone 4 Pro

Asus has started pushing out a new update to its ZenFone 4 Pro smartphone. However, the company didn't showcase its upcoming smartphone, the Zenfone 5 Max, at the event. As reported previously, the device received its Wi-Fi certification and now it has been spotted on Geekbench. The benchmark listing reveals the key specifications of the smartphone and these seem to be surprising.

The Android Oreo update is being pushed out in stages so it might take a while before it reaches your device. There's no worth on the battery and camera configuration, but we suspect more details on the Asus ZenFone 5 Max could emerge in the coming weeks, so stick around for more info on the matter. We say so as the previous generation Zenfone Max models utilized low-end MediaTek chipsets. The device has managed to score 1518 points in the single-core test, while its multi-core test score is 5386 points. These scores are somewhat similar to the ones we have seen on the Vivo X20 Plus and other smartphones that make use of the Snapdragon 660 SoC. New information about the ZenFone5 Max suggests this is a mid-range handset rather than a top-tier one.

Uber driver arrested after molestation attempt on Delhi woman
He said the company is "ready to support law enforcement authorities with any information needed for their investigation". The drivers in the present incident have violated the terms of the agreement that Uber signs with its driver-partners.

Seeing as at least two of the ZenFone 5 series devices revealed at MWC 2018 have an iPhone X-like notch, it may be assumed that ZenFone 5 Max may also come with the infamous notch.
