Download and Install LineageOS 15 On Zenfone 2 Laser/Selfie | Android 8.0 Oreo Custom ROM: Asus has confirmed the Oreo release for its ZenFone 4 and ZenFone 3 handsets, but by not including the ZenFone 2 in the announcement, they have made it clear that they do not plan to release the Android 8.0 for the ZenFone 2 series. This announcement is not very surprising as the phone itself is almost 2 years old and in the world of Android phones, you can’t expect your phone to get updates for too long.
