Asus opens Android 12 Beta Program for Zenfone 8 (with ZenUI)

Android 12 is almost here, it is releasing next week which will be available for Pixel phones right after release. Other OEMs have started working on bringing the latest Android 12 beta to their phones for the final round of testing before releasing it to the public. Asus is also testing Android 12 on the Zenfone 8. And as you know Asus Zenfone has its own custom skin ‘ZenUI’, and so the latest Android 12 beta comes with custom skin.

After the Android 12 announcement at the Google I/O event, Asus also released the Android 12 developer preview for Zenfone 8. And last month they also pushed a second Android 12 DP for Zenfone 8. But that build was on pure Android skin. But as you know Zenfone runs on ZenUI skin, the Android 12 will also come with the same skin but optimized for Android 12.

Asus has already started recruiting beta testers for Zenfone 8 Android 12 beta with ZenUI. It will let users enjoy the features of Android 12 as well as ZenUI. And as you can easily guess, Zenfone 8 will be the first Asus phone to get Android 12. Now if you want to join the Android 12 beta program on Zenfone 8, the registration is open.
