ASUS 3 Max variants ZC553KL and ZC520TL get Android 7.1.1 Nougat update. The company starts rolling out the OTA update with build number 14.0200.1704.119 and 14.01.1705.23 which update both devices from Marshmallow to Nougat. As the OTA (over the air) update is rolling out in phases, it will take a week or more to get the update notification. Users can also download and install the update manually.

In this guide, we let you how to update ASUS 3 Max ZC553KL/ ZC520TL to Android 7.1.1 manually. The official ZenTalk forum does not specify details about the update, but the version number is 14.0200.1704.119 for ASUS 3 Max ZC553KL variant and 14.01.1705.23 for ASUS 3 Max ZC520TL variant. However, we have noticed that the ZC553KL variant getting Android 7.0 instead of 7.1.1 may be a misprint by the forum member.

Nougat update will include new features, enhanced ZenUI, performance boost, general bug fixes, new unicode code 9.0 emoji and skin tone for ZenUI Keyboard, latest security patches and more. The update also removes some apps and live wallpapers, as they do not work properly with Nougat.

If you have not received the Nougat update notification on your phone, you can manually check the update by going go to Settings > About > System Update > and check for update manually.

If the update is available, follow the instructions to install the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update on ASUS 3 Max. If you prefer manual installation, then check out the guide below.


– Make sure at least 2.5 GB free space on the internal storage
– Once update is available, tap on the notification to download the update.
– Once download is completed, a pop-up to install the update will appear. Tap Install to continue.
– The device will reboot twice during the installation of the update. Please do not turn off the device until the home screen appears.

Nowadays at least as of Android 8, one doesn't even have to boot into recovery mode. The .zip will be noticed upon normal boot and it will ask you if you want to update with it.
