CES 2014 - During ASUS' keynote speech at CES 2014, ASUS chairman and all-round cool guy Jonney Shih announced a new range of smartphones from the Taiwanese giant, the ZenFone series.




ASUS' ZenFone series comes in multiple products: ZenFone 4, 5, and 6. Starting with the ZenFone 4, which is a low-end smartphone with a 4-inch display and measly 800x480 resolution, it has a 5-megapixel rear-snapper, and is powered by Intel's Atom Z2520 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz. The ASUS ZenFone 4 will be priced at just $99 - a steal!


Moving onto the ZenFone 5, which features the Intel Atom Z2580 CPU clocked at 2GHz. It has a 1280x720-pixel 5-inch display, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. The ZenFone 5 will retail for $149.


Lastly, we have the flagship ZenFone 6, which features a - you guessed it - 6-inch display. We also have support for a stylus, and a 13-megapixel camera on the back. We have a price of just $199 for the ASUS ZenFone 6.
