Asus has already confirmed that the Zenfone 3 and Zenfone 4 series will be updated to the latest Android Oreo soon. Now, some leaked screenshots showing the Oreo-backed Zenfone 3 has been leaked online, which gives us a glimpse of the upcoming update would look like.
As per the screenshot shared by ZenFoneBlog, the user interface is quite similar to what we have seen in previous ZenUI. The app icons largely remain the same and so is the Setting menu. However, the blog mentions that the smartphone will receive most of the Oreo functions like picture-in-picture mode, improved background app limiting and notification updates.
Post getting the Oreo update, the smartphones will have picture-in-picture mode that lets users to two tasks simultaneously.

Android Oreo has other features like including Background limits, installation of apps via APK, over 60 new emojis, notification dots, Wide-gamut colour for apps, Snoozing individual notification, Adaptive icons, Keyboard navigation, WebView enhancements and much more.
