ASUS Zenfone 3 reported to launch by mid-2016

With the success of the company’s Zenfone 2 lineup in 2015, it only makes sense that the ASUS will launch its successor, the Zenfone 3, next year. And according to reports, we might see the new Zenfones in mid-2016.

According to DigiTimes, a Taiwan-based supply chain has tipped that the Zenfone 3 will launch in May or June 2016. The said smartphone will feature a fingerprint scanner developed by Taiwan-based Elan Microelectronics and China-based Goodix. Like the Zenfone 2 lineup, the Zenfone 3 series will sport processors made by Intel or Qualcomm.

ASUS announced the Zenfone 2 in January of 2015. It (ZE551ML and ZE500CL) then officially launched in the Philippines in May. If we’re lucky, we might see the Zenfone 3 in the country around the same time next year.

    Di pa kayo naumay sa zenfone 2 na may 30+ variants? Lalagyan lang ng ASUS ng (1) finger print scanner at (2) force touch yung phone.

    I think ASUS failed to capitalize on the massive success of the Zenfone 4, 6 and especially 5. The features and the pricing was super aggressive for such a respected brand.

    The Zenfone 2 and its countless variants were just… meh. They didnt even have 1 variant with 4k video. The only standout variant- Zenfone Zoom got released almost 1 year after its announcement and basically nonexistent in retail stores.

    Hopefully they can recreate their Zenfone 5 magic with the ZF3.

    sana lang gawing 5000mAh ang battery ng zenfone3 kasi madali maubos battery ng zenfone 2
