Asus Zenfone2 Deluxe 2 - The TeCake

After launching the Zenfone 2 variants in the market, the Taiwanese giant, Asus is in process to announce its Zenfone 3 series devices. The reports coming from the company reveals that the upcoming smartphones under the Zenfone 3 portfolio of the device will be featured with USB type C ports, which are reversible ports that can be used for multiple purposes

Several manufacturers out in the market are rushing towards including USB type-C ports in their products, which includes OnePlus 2, Nexus 6 P, Nexus 5 X, Lumia 950, and Lumia 950 XL. The Nokia N1 tablet and the latest MacBook from Apple are also having this new-gen port. This new addition would surely impress the customers and make life easier for all the people and especially for non-tech savvy people, who often face problems with wires and USB

Apart from the USB Type-C port, the latest ZenFone series 3 will flaunt an improved specs and detailing. Talking in an interview with Trusted Reviews, Jonney Shih, Asus CEO said, “I think Type-C is the way to go, frankly speaking. You will see the answer when you see the ZenFone 3.” Noticeably, the ZenFone series have always been launched in the first quarter of the year, therefore, it is expected from the company to announce the upcoming handsets in Q1, 2016.

The firm has received an overwhelming response with its Zenfone 2 variants, which includes ZenFone 2, ZenFone 2 laser, ZenFone selfie. The Zenfone 2 handsets are ruling the market with their affordable prices that make the device best buy in their range and customers’ requirements.

We have to wait till Q1’16 to get our hands on ZenFone 3 series smartphones and see how they fare in the markets. It is still unclear that whether the company will be able to attract a larger user base by adding a USB Type-C port, or it will offer significant hardware changes in a reasonable price.

Stay tuned to get updated with the upcoming information on Asus Zenfone 2 lineup handsets.
