ASUS ROG Phone II Android 11 update finally starts rolling out

ASUS launched the ROG Phone II back in September 2019 running Android 9.0 (Pie), and the Android 10 update for the phone was released in March 2020. Now the company has started rolling out Android 11 update for the phone this week, finally starting from Taiwan after the beta testing started a couple of months back.

This should be the final Android update for the phone, since it has not confirmed Android 12 for it when it announced the Android 12 update schedule last month.

The Android 11 update for the ROG Phone II has the version 18.0210.2111.160, and is gradually rolling out, but you can download the update zip file directly here. Check out the complete changelog below.
