Asus has announced the 7-inch Fonepad 7 hybrid on IFA back at September last year. It quickly gained some popularity due to its very attractive price tag and unique mixture of tablet and smartphone experience although it didn’t exactly turn into a best seller. Still that doesn’t prevent Asus from taking good care of it and here comes its first major update.
Originally the Fonepad 7 hit the shelves running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Asus didn’t specify any upgrade plans, but it seems the manufacturer has been working to bring a newer Android version on the device.
So, the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is now available as an over-the-air update for the Fonepad 7. It brings improved video player and image gallery, Gallery Home Front, and other UI improvements. There is no official change log though, so more upgrades could be hiding under the hood including improved system stability and bug fixes.
Anyway, if you own a Fonepad 7, you should check your Update section. There is no info on further updates, but we hope Asus decides to bring Android 4.4 KitKat to Fonepad 7 too.
