Asus mobile sort of missed the boat with the ZenFone 3 line, which took ages to come out in the US and then wasn't very competitive with other devices. The ZenFone 3 Deluxe was priced similarly to the Huawei P9, but it wasn't as good. Asus isn't pretending the phone never happened, though. This phone is getting an Android 7.0 update, the first wide rollout of Nougat for Asus.

The new version of Android does not support Asus Share Link, a pre-loaded app for sharing files with other devices. The ShakeShake gesture is no longer supported in ZenMotion, either. A number of old live wallpapers have been ditched too.

There are new things in Nougat, of course. You're probably familiar with those. There's split-screen app mode, customizable quick settings, improved Doze Mode, and more. You should find all those in the new Asus ZenFone 3 software, but it will take around a week to roll out to all devices.
