THE Asus started recruiting users to try out the Android 11 beta at the Zenfone 7 and 7 Pro before the release of the final version. The testing program is open to cell phone owners of the Taiwanese company until the beginning of October 2020, as explained by a thread opened on Thursday (23) at the ZenTalk forum.
The beta program is open to Zenfone 7 (ZS670KS) and Zenfone 7 Pro (ZS671KS) owners who are ZenTalk members and who have not previously unlocked their smartphone. To test Android 11, Asus phone owners will have to sign up for the program between September 23 and October 5, 2020.
In August 2020, Asus summoned Zenfone 6 owners to have early access to Google’s new operating system, which reached its final version in early September with news on notifications, privacy improvements and more.
Zenfone 7: how to sign up for the Android 11 test program
As mentioned earlier, the test program is available for ZS670KS (Zenfone 7) and ZS671KS (Zenfone 7 Pro) cell phones. In addition, to access the Android 11 beta, the phone must have the latest stable firmware version (126.96.36.199) installed. Learn how to enroll in the program*:
- Access the system settings, “System” and then go to “System Update”;
- Press the gear icon, located in the upper right corner of the screen;
- Tap on the option “Enroll in Beta Test Program” (“Sign up for the Beta Test Program”, in free translation);
- Read and agree to Asus’ terms;
- Create an Asus member account and apply for the program.
It is worth remembering that, since it is a beta version, the system is subject to failures and instabilities. According to Asus, “The beta firmware is NOT compatible with Google Pay and some financial apps and is not able to install Netflix from Google Play [Store]. Observe this limitation before applying ”.
It is also recommended to make a backup before the update.
