Zenbo Junior will be running Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Information that we’ve come across indicates that the upcoming Zenbo Junior will be sporting Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Yes, this is a version of Android from 2015, but most likely ASUS will update as the robot is released. Having said that, having the latest and greatest OS inside Zenbo won’t be as important as having the software dialed into the robot functionality. No question most tech enthusiast may shudder at the thought of not getting the latest and greatest Android version, but this is a robot and not a smartphone. Let’s just alter our mindset a bit?

Rumors only started recently regarding Zenbo Junior. In a sense, this could be thought of a Zenbo 2. There has only been one mention outside of this information we’ve found and it’s the first actual published verification of the product.

If you’re upset about the wait for Zenbo and the fact ASUS claimed it would be coming to the US months and months ago, it looks now like Zenbo Junior will be showing up at some point and not the original. Who knows why, but a large robot means bigger costs and bigger prices. Profit plays a role in these types of decisions and we certainly don’t see a situation where Zenbo and Zenbo Junior are available together. Our guess is that the original Zenbo is done, and things are moving forward with Zenbo Junior. This is speculation on our part of course.

Stay tuned for updates!
