Asus took the bold step of announcing their range of ZenFone smartphones earlier this year at CES which was held in Las Vegas, Nevada. It looks as though Asus has high ambitions of selling 5 million units before 2015 comes a-knocking on our calendars. Needless to say, it is rather comforting to know that all three of the ZenFone devices, namely the ZenFone 6, ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 4, managed to gain positive press from the markets that they were released in, delivering decent features without breaking the bank. Hence, it is not surprising to hear that Asus is working on a second generation ZenFone series.
Focus Taiwan claims that Asus CEO Jerry Shen did mention how the next generation of ZenFone smartphones might see an unveiling at next year’s edition of CES, and obviously being a new release then, the handsets ought to boast of new upgrades packed in a newly redesigned chassis, so we ought to see better camera capabilities, additional memory, not to mention a longer lasting battery life – if it were possible, that is.
Do take note, however, that the ZenFones were not released on a global basis, and right now they are offering it across 11 countries. Will Asus work on expanding its market network down the road with the next generation of ZenFones? Only time will be able to tell.
