Yesterday we reported that Asus had taken to their Facebook page to tease that “awesome” features would be included in the next update; those features have been leaked via Asus Italy’s Facebook page.Some of these updates are more technical while others are features that people called for when the Prime was first released like the Face Unlock and lock-screen notification controls.
The leaked features in build 126.96.36.199 (translated by Google) are listed below:
- Face Unlock
- Lockscreen notification controls
- Updates to Google’s “Play” apps (shouldn’t that have already happened?)
- Asus Vibe to version 2.0 with new interface
- Support for LAN connections using USB converter
- Camera no longer needs to be updated separately, will happen with system updates
- Ad-hoc network connections now supported
- HDMI-to-TV viewing can be switched from portrait to landscape
This update is rumored to drop tomorrow (Thursday the 29th).
UPDATE: Well the update went live this morning to everyone that owns a Prime in the U.S. Make sure to go through the normal route (Settings -> About -> Check for Update) to get the update and play with all the new features. Let us know how you like them and if there are any bugs.
