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.
