Asus Zenfone 3 to feature USB Type-C Port

Asus has confirmed that it is working on the next generation Zenfone 3 series of handsets. According to its CEO Jonney Shih, the phones will sport the USB Type-C ports as well.

Jonney Shih said, “I think Type C is the way to go, frankly speaking. You will see the answer when you see the ZenFone 3.” According to Shih, the reason for not including a USB Type-C in the Zenfone 2 series of phones was the cost factor.

             Mr. Jonney did not reveal any more specifications or upcoming features. Also, there is no clue when the Zenfone 3 smartphones will be released in the market. But going by the previous records, the original Zenfone was introduced early last year, while the Zenfone 2 was made official early this year. So an educated guess suggests that we can see the next generation of Zenfone smartphones in the early 2016.
               So far we have seen phones such as the OnePlus 2, Google Nexus 5X, Google Nexus 6P with the USB Type-C ports. The new 12-inch MacBook released earlier this year also sports a USB Type-C port.

According to PhoneArena, the Zenfone 3 smartphones will be available in low-end, mid-range, and high-end variants, similar to the Zenfone 2 family. However, it is not sure whether or not all these variants will carry the USB Type-C port
