The Taiwan tech brand Asus has launched its 2nd generation ROG series gaming smartphone called Asus ROG Phone II (ZS660KL). It has all the useful and flagship-grade specifications & features that you may not find on any gaming smartphone. The device came with Android 9.0 Pie with ROG UI out-of-the-box and received a bunch of bug fixes & system improvements that you will find here. Now, Asus ROG Phone 2 users are getting a new software update with a version of WW-16.0631.1910.64.
The update is based on Android 9.0 Pie and rolling out globally in batches. Therefore, not all users may receive the update at the same time. It will take some time to appear on all ROG Phone II devices via FOTA. The update fixes DOCOMO SIM connection issue, occasional touch failure, navigation bar issue while playing PUBG Mobile, call volume issue for Facebook or WhatsApp calls, File Manager crashing issue while opening an image in the hidden folder, key mapping issue in Star Commander.
Now, if you want to wait for FOTA (firmware-over-the-air) update then check it manually on an interval basis. Otherwise, you can manually install the latest firmware version on your device by following the guide below. Here we have put up the firmware download link along with requirements and installation steps.
Check FOTA Update
The faster FOTA update availability mostly depends on the server, region, and mobile carrier as well for the Asus devices. Therefore, we will recommend checking FOTA update manually via device Settings > General > About phone > Update Center > System update > Check for update.
If the software update having the version WW-16.0631.1910.64 is available then download and install it to apply. Make sure to charge your device up to 50% at least and connect to a Wi-Fi network as well.
