Asus ZenFone 6, ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 4 to be launched in April

Asus announced its new Intel-powered ZenFone smartphones at CES 2014 in January, but it didn’t release any of them yet. Still, it looks like that’s going to happen soon.

According to Asus, the company is getting ready to officially launch the new handsets in April - at least in China. Reportedly, the ZenFone 4, ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 6 will all be available in China starting April 11. They’ll run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean at launch, but updates to 4.4 KitKat should arrive later this year.

The largest among the new devices is the ZenFone 6, which, as its name suggests, sports a 6-inch display (with 720 x 1280 pixels). Other features include a 13MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, dual-core 2GHz Intel Atom Z2580 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable internal memory, and a large 3,300 mAh battery. The ZenFone 6 should retail for $200.

Next, the ZenFone 5 also has a 720p display, but this one measures 5 inches. The handset further features a dual-core 2GHz Intel Atom Z2580 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal memory. It has an 8MP camera on the back, and a 2,110 mAh battery. It will be cheaper than the ZenFone 6, being priced at $150.

Naturally, the ZenFone 4 is the smallest among the three devices, offering a 4-inch WVGA display, 5MP rear camera, dual-core 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2520 processor, 1GB of RAM, only 4GB of internal memory, and a 1,200 mAh battery. This will cost around $100.
