Asus ZenFone 5 LTE and ZenFone DIY coming soon?

Asus may soon introduce two new handsets that will be part of its ZenFone series - which, until now, includes the ZenFone 6, ZenFone 5, and ZenFone 4.

Chinese website VR-Zone has it that one of the upcoming devices is called ZenFone 5 LTE. Obviously, this should feature LTE connectivity, and it might also support wireless charging. Instead of being powered by an Intel processor (like the regular ZenFone 5 - seen above), the ZenFone 5 LTE could use a Qualcomm SoC. The rest of its features will likely be similar to those offered by the non-LTE model, including a 5-inch display with 720 x 1,280 pixels, and 2GB of RAM.

As for the ZenFone DIY, this is a mystery for now. However, its name suggests that it could be a Moto X-like handset that users can customize to some extent.

Both the ZenFone 5 LTE and ZenFone DIY might be announced at Computex 2014 in early June. 

Not long ago, Asus said that it hoped to sell at least 5 million ZenFone devices before the end of 2014. The new models should help, though it remains to be seen when, where and for how much they’re going to be sold.

I love Asus as my 2 first notebooks were made by them. But oh lord I hate the name "zenfone". Hope that's not the official name. Gotta feeling it is tho...

There are already three Zenfone phones. The name is established. You would have known that if you read the article.

I imported a Fonepad from Taiwan and the hardware build quality was fine, a step down from Samsung and LG, maybe on Alcatel or ZTE level. Software seemed a little buggy but satisfactory. But I would happily sport a Zenfone 6. Too bad they're not launching a Zenfone 6 LTE with AT&T support.

This might just be wishful thinking, but the Zenfone DIY could be something ARA-like
