Last May, we went to Taiwan again for Computex. It’s our 2nd time to go to Computex and we were amazed with all the things that we saw in Taipei. And of course, if you’ve followed me here in my blog and YouTube Channel, you’ve probably seen my videos and articles about the new products that were introduced in Computex. During the event, we also got a chance to interview the CEO of ASUS, Mr. Jerry Shen. Here are the things that we learn in our interview with Mr. Jerry Shen.
ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom is doing very well in many markets
The ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom was a great smartphone that’s why I was not surprised that this smartphone was doing well in some markets. It might not be the best when it comes to performance but the ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom sure has a good camera and with its latest update, the ASUS Zenfone 3 Zoom now comes with portrait mode that works similarly to the one on the iPhone 7 Plus. Also, ASUS has recently updated the phone to Android 7.1.1.
No new Transformer Series at Computex
One of the reaons why we didn’t saw a new ASUS Transformer 2-in-1 notebooks is that ASUS is still happy with the ASUS Transformer 3 series. This 2-in-1 tablets are powered by 7th-generation Intel Core Series which means that the tablet is still updated when it comes to hardware
ASUS is ready for IoT, Smart Home, & Smart Cities
Internet of Things is the future. Everything that we have right now including our appliances will be connected to the internet in the future and ASUS is ready for that. Right now they have products for IoT like the ASUS Tinker Board and they already have products for Smart Home including ZenBo, that amazing cute little robot from the company. 2 years ago ASUS built a team for Smart Cities and currently, they’re working on different things right now however, ASUS did not disclose what were they.
Those were just some of the things that we learned in our interview. The future is exciting for ASUS. We haven’t seen the ASUS Zenfone 4 last Computex so expect that this smartphone will arrive soon. We don’t have any clues when or where it will be launch but expect their new Zenfone lineup this year.
