Asus will reportedly soon be launching new variants of the recent announced ZenFone 2 handset.
These new variants will be powered by chips from Qualcomm and MediaTek, unlike the ZenFone 2 and original ZenFone series that's been powered by Intel processors. The move is an effort by the company 'to diversify its smartphone component suppliers,' the report added.
The reportby Focus Taiwan says that the Qualcomm chipset-based Asus ZenFone 2smartphone will be available in Q2 of this year, and will be priced lower than the one already announced. Asuswill also launch MediaTek-powered 3G variant of the handsets in markets like India, where LTE connectivity is yet to reach its full potential, the report added. This variant will likely be even cheaper than the Qualcomm powered ZenFone 2
