While some of the new ZenFones will be powered by Intel processors (just like the current 4-inch, 5-inch, and 6-inch models), others will apparently rely on chipsets made by MediaTek. The Intel-based ZenFones should all feature LTE connectivity, having prices starting at around $300. The MediaTek-powered models will be cheaper, and it’s said that Asus intends to sell them in China and other emerging markets.
Intel itself is confirming (see the second source link below) that new LTE ZenFones are coming to CES 2015.
Asus may sell a total of 8 million smartphones this year, and expects to double sales in 2015. We’ll have to wait and see if it manages to do that.
