After Asus CEO Jerry Shen resigned lower back on the cease of 2018, the company started to barely shift focus far from the budget smartphone segment, focusing squarely on flagships and the gaming ROG lineup. While inexpensive models, just like the ZenFone Live (L2), were trickling-out onto the market, till as overdue as April final year, those don’t come everywhere close to the recognition of the enterprise’s final price range hit – The ZenFone Max Pro (M2).
According to a brand new leak, matters would possibly extrude soon, as Asus is presently running on 4 devices, with chipsets codenamed “Lito”, “Lagoon”, “Bengal”, and “Scuba”. We have quite the good concept which chipsets those names talk over with and they all are midrange to low-cease parts.
The “Lito” moniker is possibly the Snapdragon 765/765G, while “Lagoon” might be the Snapdragon 690. Both of those contemporary-day mid-variety parts, substantially with green 5G modems covered properly at the chipset itself.
Things get a bit muddier with “Bengal” and “Scuba”. The former is possibly related to both the Snapdragon 662 or the Snapdragon 460. And the latter might be a part of a total budget Qualcomm Snapdragon two hundred own circles of relatives of chips.
Unfortunately, we haven’t any different data at the 4 mysterious Asus phones. A right initial naming bet to throw accessible will be the Asus Max (M3) family. But, that’s simply a speculation at this point. We will hold you posted.
