At an investor conference held in Taiwan, Asus' CEO Jerry Shen told the media that the company is planning to launch updated Zenfone series at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2015.
Apparently, the Zenfone 2 series will be powered by Intel chipsets. Shen also mentioned that plans are in place to unveil smartphones with non-Intel chipsets.
