Asus To Announce A 5.5-Inch ZenFone Smartphone At CES In January

October 4, 2014 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Asus’ ZenFone line is rather popular, especially in China. These are not extremely flashy devices, but they do come in multiple sizes in order to suit everyone’s needs. You can find these devices in three sizes at the moment: 4-inch, 5-inch and a 6-inch size. There has been talk for quite some time now that the company is is working on the next generation of ZenFone devices. New reports bring us some information regarding that, let’s see what’s it all about.

It seems like Asus intends to add yet another size option in their upcoming ZenFone line, a 5.5-inch model for those who might find 6-inch device too big and 5-inch model to small. According to the report, Asus will announce this device at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in January along with the rest of this new ZenFone line of devices. Only some of these upcoming devices will feature LTE it seems and Asus allegedly intends to aggressively promote the new line in the US. The devices will, of course, feature a new design, user interface, etc. One more important characteristic of Asus’ ZenFone line is affordability. All of company’s ZenFone devices are rather affordable, with ZenFone 4 costing about $100 while the ZenFone 6 is priced at around $300. These new devices will quite probably try to keep the prices down as well. Asus expects this new line of devices to sell better than the current one, a lot better actually, they’re expecting their sales to double basically, that’s at least what analysts say.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get any information when it comes to specs for either of the upcoming devices, you can expect those rumors to start rolling out soon though. If I were to guess the specs, I’d say we’ll see solid smartphone offerings, but nothing that will push the limits, just like the current ZenFone line. All of these devices are solid offerings and are a good choice for the vast majority of people while they’re not here to brag about their specs.
