ASUS ROG Phone 3 XDA Forums

he concept of gaming smartphones as we know them today has been with us for a few years, having been kickstarted with the Razer Phone. Bleeding-edge specifications and features to appease gamers and their needs have been at the forefront of the concept for these devices, and they’ve shifted a lot over the years. But one company that’s consistently pulling it off right is ASUS with their ROG line of smartphones. ROG is one of the biggest brands when it comes to gaming PC components, and on the smartphone side of the aisle, they’re a pretty big deal too. Last year’s smartphone, the ROG Phone 3, is now finally getting Android 11.

Android 11 for this phone has been a long time coming. The beta program for the phone’s update has been going since March, and Android 12 is right around the corner. But then again, ASUS has never really been known as a company with an amazing track record of updates, even though their software has greatly improved over the past few years. The ROG Phone 3 launched with Android 10, and most other phones launched during that timeframe have already had Android 11 for months. But then again, ASUS also took a long time to polish the update so it’s completely ready for final consumers, and now, the update is rolling out to all ROG Phone 3 users across the globe.

We should note that the update has not been announced yet on the ZenTalk forums, but nonetheless, the ROG Phone 3 update’s firmware file is now available if you want to check it out on your device. If you haven’t checked out Android 11 on the ROG Phone 3 yet, chat bubbles, one-time permissions control, notifications history, and increased security are among the enhancements included with the new OS. You’ll also get the latest version of ASUS’ ZenUI/ROG UI skin, as well as a number of stock apps that have been updated to match. The full changelog goes as follows:
