Asus has confirmed that it is working on the next line of smartphones ZenFone 3. According to preliminary reports, the smartphone will be equipped with port USB Type-C.
CEO John Shi confirmed the development of a new line of smartphones ZenFone, as well as the fact that the device will have a USB Type-C interface.
As we remember, ZenFone and ZenFone 2 were presented in early 2014 and the first half of 2015, so we can expect that the first smartphone Zenfone 3 will be presented in the first half of 2016.
It is noteworthy that at the moment only a few Android smartphones equipped with a new connector USB Type-C, such as OnePlus 2, Google’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Also, tablet Nokia N1, smartphones Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL using modern technology. In addition, Apple has left only connector USB Type-C in the recently released 12-inch laptop MacBook.
We know that the series ZenFone 2 consist of high, middle and low class smartphones. We suggest that the series Zenfone 3 will also follow this strategy, but we don’t known whether all smartphones equipped with connector USB Type-C or only high-level device.
Recently in India, it was released a new smartphone ZenFone 2 Laser 5.5 (ZE550KL) at the price of 13,999 rupees ($ 220). ZenFone 2 Laser 5.5 is the third model in the series ZenFone 2.
