Asus has denied reports that speculated that the Taiwanese company could very soon merge the Zenfone division with the ROG division, killing the company’s flagship Zenfone series. Last week, a report from a local publication suggested that Asus may be planning to pull the plug on the Zenfone series in the wake of the popularity of the ROG phones.
Original story: The currently available, Asus Zenfone 10, could be the brand’s last Zenfone device, according to the report. And, the company may merge its Zenfone team with the ROG team.
Asus has two smartphone lineups in its portfolio – Zenfone and ROG. In the past few years, we have seen the Zenfone devices to be compact phone offerings, whereas, the ROG phone series caters to gamers. Now, however, Asus may merge the Zenfone team with the ROG team as a local report reveals that the Zenfone 10 was its last Zenfone device. Some employees from the Zenfone team will be shifted to other departments in the company.
It is worth noting that this is just a report and Asus is yet to confirm the same. However, if this report is to be believed then Zenfone fans may have to stop anticipating new compact devices. Asus’ Zenfone is one of the rare brands that make compact flagship-grade phones.
