Asus ZenFone 3 to feature fingerprint scanner?
posted by Alan F. / Dec 18, 2015, 2:11 AM
Among the 2016 models expected to carry a fingerprint reader is the Asus ZenFone 3. The handset is expected to be unveiled in May or June 2016. Previous ZenFone models did not include this feature. The Taiwan supply chain says that the manufacturer will use sensors developed by Elan Microelectronics and China-based Goodix.
According to the sources, Asus expects to ship 30 million handsets overall in 2016, up 50% from the 20 million delivered this year. The manufacturer has run into strong competition in emerging markets from other handset companies based in China. Those firms include Huawei, Xiaomi, Lenovo, Oppo, Vivo, Meizu, Coolpad, ZTE and TCL.
The Taiwan supply chain states that the ZenFone series has been doing good business in Southeast Asia, India, Brazil, Russia and Taiwan. 80% of the ZenFone line has employed Qualcomm or Intel chipsets. Only 20% has shipped with a MediaTek SoC under the hood.

Asus has really made zenfone laser best in its price range, good camera, zen ui, display is tuff and vibrant, really value for money. 2gb ram sd410 and sd615 with amount of sensors unlike Samsung has lot of sensor missing in j5 and j7.

Slim down the bezels and thickness, Full Metal body, MediaTek Helio x10 or x12 or some other powerful intel processor, AMOLED display if possible on basic low end version. Make it possible.

More like Helio X20, to say the least for 2016 midrange phones.

I LOVE my ZF2, and I really hope they sick with the Intel processors (something with at lest as much power as the SD810), go up to a 2k display, maybe 5GB of RAM just because, and I REALLY want an IR blaster! Like REALLY want it! I don't care about finger print readers at all, I want an IR blaster!
