Asus Zenfone 10 will not be the last smartphone in the series from the Taiwanese firm. The company has cleared the rumours surrounding the Zenfone lineup after a report claimed that it was shutting the Zenfone division. The firm has also denied the claim made in the report that there would be no Asus Zenfone 11 next year. Instead, the smartphone maker stated that the Zenfone and the ROG Phone lineup will continue to expand. Asus Zenfone 10 is the latest handset in the Zenfone series and it was launched in June.
Responding to a report from Technews Taiwan claiming that the Zenfone 10 would be the last phone in the series, Asus has officially confirmed that it will bring the successor to the smartphone in 2024. In an official statement, the firm stated, “We would like to address the rumour that Asus Zenfone 10 will be the last generation of the series and the Asus Zenfone product line will be shut down. This is not true.” The company also clarified that Asus’ Zenfone and ROG Phone production has not been halted.
The Technews Taiwan report had suggested that an internal restructuring was being carried out at Asus and the Zenfone division was being shut down as a result. It was claimed that this year’s Zenfone 10 would be the last generation of the series. However, the clarification from Asus has refuted the claims made in the report, pointing to its Q2 earnings call for additional information, and asking customers to stay tuned for the firm’s 2024 product lineup.
