Asus today showed off the Zenfone series, a new line of smartphones that range from small to large, but focus on ease-of-use and simplicity. There are four devices in the series, including the Zenfone 4, Zenfone 5, Zenfone 6, and Padfone Mini. As their names imply, the Zenfone 4 has a 4-inch screen with 5-megapixel camera; the Zenfone 5 has a 5-inch screen with 8-megapixel camera; and the Zenfone 6 has a 6-inch screen with 13-megapixel camera. The Padfone Mini has a 4-inch screen and docks with a 7-inch tablet. All of the Zenfone products use the Zen user interface, called ZenUI, that has a modern style and spartan design, yet remains powerful and customizable with 3D animations. The devices are inexpensive, ranging from $99 to $249 without contracts. Asus did not say when the devices might become available. Asus also showed off the PadFone X, which will be sold by AT&T later this year.
