Asus Will Launch Zenfone 2 with Intel Moorefield and Merrifield ?
CES 2015 we are very close distance, ASUS in France on the 12th is also the first to announce that there will be a new stage in the global consumer electronics show.
France on the 12th, it seems that quite a lot of talk ZenFone, but let’s not focus on the numbers, but one called “ZenFone 2” products.
ASUS seems to be determined will publish the next generation of ZenFone at CES 2015, the current approach is not named creative brief to “ZenFone 2” to call it, but there is news that the official name may vary.
According to ASUS, PadFone use Qualcomm Snapdragon (now being ZenFone tightly pressed, a short time should not be a new bar), MeMO Pad using other processors (later changed to the full Intel), and is currently the largest cases of ZenFone series is based on Intel processor based. Only one ZenFone 5 LTE using Qualcomm processor, which is of course because 4G LTE market, but since the sales performance was not as cheap Intel better.
Another Speculation ZenFone 2 will use Intel Atom processor, but I think from the current 22nm Clover Trail + upgrade to the Moorefield Merrifield or two 64 bit SoC products.
As can be seen, ASUS ZenFone still in second generation of “affordable luxury” phrase rather contradictory rhetoric marketing mobile phones, while also made six major features are “design aesthetics”, “camera”, “ZenUI user interface.” “sound”, “operational effectiveness” and “battery hour” as the demands of ZenFone 2.
Published in the CES 2015 the ASUS Keynote, release date, price and style, I believe there will be further in front Keynote answers. If you like ASUS, at the same time like their ZenFone, it would look a little bit.
