Asus Zenfone 2 may come with both Qualcomm & MediaTek SoCs

Taiwanese smartphone maker Asus is reportedly going to launch new variants of its much talked about Zenfone 2 smartphone. These new variants of the Zenfone 2 will be powered by Qualcomm and MediaTek SoCs respectively. The phone, which was unveiled at CES 2015, a month ago, is the first smartphone with 4GB of RAM. That said, Asus already has a 2GB variant for the device as well. 

The company has stuck to Intel processors till now. In fact, Asus has had good success with its Intel processors in the Zenfone series. The move to include Qualcomm and MediaTek chipsets is reportedly an effort ‘to diversify its smartphone component suppliers,’ said a report by Focus Taiwan.

Further, the report said that the Qualcomm-powered version of the Zenfone 2 will be available in the second quarter this year, while the MediaTek-powered variant will be a lower priced 3G handset for markets like India and others, where LTE connections haven’t quite come to the mainstream yet. In addition, the report also mentioned that company CEO Jerry Shen told investors that 40-50 percent of Zenfone 2 units would ship with Qualcomm SoCs, while the other 50-60 percent would be divided between Intel and MediaTek processors.
