Asus ZenFone 3 will likely be announced on May 30
It's been over a year since Asus unveiled the original ZenFone 2, a smartphone that offers attractive features at an affordable price. Since then, Asus released numerous other ZenFone 2 variants, but we've yet to see the company announcing anything regarding a new ZenFone series. However, we now know that Asus will host a press event on May 30, and, most probably, that's when it's going to present some next-gen ZenFone handsets.

The May 30 event will be held at Computex 2016, and Asus invites us to join it via live stream and "witness the Zenvolution" - obviously hinting at new ZenFone hardware.

Last month, we saw two renders that allegedly showed a ZenFone 3 and a ZenFone 3 Deluxe. Apparently, both handsets are made out of aluminum, the former sporting a 5.5-inch screen, and the latter having a 5.9-inch display, plus a fingerprint scanner on the front. Common features should include Android 6.0 Marshmallow, USB Type-C ports, 3 GB of RAM, and front-facing cameras with LED flash.

Previous rumors had it that the ZenFone 3 series could be powered by Qualcomm processors, but the invitation to the May 30 event clearly shows Intel's logo. Of course, just like last year, Asus might use both Intel, and Qualcomm chipsets to power its smartphones. We'll let you know more about Asus' upcoming ZenFones as soon as new details arrive.
