ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL) and Zenfone Zoom (ZX551ML) models receiving new OTA updates

Asus has slowed down in pushing the software updates to its Zenfone 2 lineup when to compare to the earlier days. However, we are receiving occasional OTA updates, and the new one comes under this category. Asus has started rolling out a new OTA update to Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL) and Zenfone Zoom (ZX551ML) models. The Zenfone 2 Laser OTA update with version number is slated to bring Android for Work support and several bug fixes. To remind you, back in March, the same Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL) model caught running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow beta build so that we can expect the Android M release around the corner.

On the other hand, the Zenfone Zoom update v2.26.40.72(MR3.2) packs various improvements along with long list of bug fixes. There are fixes for issues like incorrect charging status after cable out, SIM drop issue and a host of improvements in the camera department. You can check them out one by one down below.
