Asus' ZenFone series of Android-based smartphones currently includes devices of three sizes: 4 inches, 5 inches, and 6 inches. However, there are certainly users who’d find a 5-inch handset a bit too small, and a 6-inch one way too large.
According to DigiTimes, a 5.5-inch variant will be added to the new product line. Interestingly, the website reports that Asus plans to aggressively promote the new ZenFones in the US.
Since the first-generation ZenFones are quite cheap (the ZenFone 4 costs as low as $100, while the ZenFone 6 can be bought for around $300), we expect the new ones to be affordable, too.
