Asus has made KitKat update available for two of its devices, Padfone Infinity and Fonepad Note 6. As that’s the case with many handset makers, aside from core platform enhancements, Asus has also included some of its own updates and tweaks to the mix.
Unfortunately, the new software isn’t available over-the-air, and you’ll have to semi-manually cram it to your device. The Taiwanese company has prepared these two pages — Padfone Infinity and Fonepad Note 6 — with all the instructions you would need. You’ll have to download the appropriate package and start the installation that way.
Before doing so, read about the goodies you’ll get.
First, here’s what’s new for the Padfone Infinity:
- Car Home
