Well, December is obviously here, and as Samsung moves further and further down the food chain to take care of everything from the mid-range Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022) in the mid-range Galaxy A42 5G, Asus officially keeps its commitment with plenty of time until Christmas.
As promised (and expected), the ZenFone 9 is the business first device to leave Android 12 behind, marking an absolutely massive collection of “tweaks”, improvements, tweaks, add-ons and new features detailed in the incredibly long list below:
- Revamped Mobile Manager, Contacts, Phone, Emergency Dialer, File Manager, Calculator, Clock, Gallery, Weather, Voice Recorder, Settings, Data Transfer, Local Backup and other Asus apps;
- Quick settings panel, notification bar and volume panel adjusted to Android 13 design;
- Added notification permission functionality. You can adjust the permission for each app in app & notification settings;
- System clipboard added “auto-delete” and editor functionality;
- Added QR code scanner option for lock screen shortcut function and “Control from locked device” function in security and lock screen setting;
- If Bedtime is configured in Digital Wellbeing, the system color scheme can now be set to automatically switch with Bedtime;
- Adjusted vibration and haptic force setting, display setting and font size and navigation white bar width/length when choosing gesture navigation;
- Changed Blocked Numbers setting in Phone to store behavior. You will not receive calls or texts from blocked numbers;
- Removed call duration setting;
- Added Theme Icons option in Wallpaper and Style setting Support for more color combinations;
- Added “quick share link” feature in ASUS Launcher;
- Added Asus customization preferences setting. Allows applying the collection of commonly used customization settings with a single click;
- Removed “Calm” and “Elegant” options from the power button menu style setting. Add the option to manage display elements to allow the user to control the number of buttons in the menu;
- Adjusted the design of the keypad and contact details page in the Phone app to display information more clearly.
Analyzed individually, these may not seem like the most significant, groundbreaking, or defining changes in the history of Google’s leading mobile operating system. Collectively, however, they definitely add up to something that can make your user experience significantly better than what you can currently get from the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Asus Zenfone 9.
It’s by far the most compact Android powerhouse on the market today, which means it’s probably the best “small” phone to run Android 13, although it goes without saying that its screen of 5.9 inches would not have deserved this title. few years ago.
With this hefty new update, the ZenFone 9 is clearly more compelling than ever for potential new buyers, especially considering the $50 discount currently being offered by authorized seller Mobile Advance via Amazon on a storage variant. 256 GB with 8 GB of RAM on deck. which usually costs $749.
Unfortunately, you may not have much time left to pull the trigger, as supplies are extremely limited…and Christmas is right around the corner. Of course, if you prefer larger phones with solid gaming credentials, Android 13 should also be (more or less) around the corner for the ROG Phone 6, 6Pro, 6D, and 6D Ultimate in addition to 2021’s 5.9-inch compact Zenfone 8.
