Mobile World Congress has become crowded and April is apoplectic Galaxy time. Late January is lacking, early February is empty. The question? When will ASUS launch the ZenFone 4 (will it even be called the ZenFone 4)?

ASUS, along with its Taiwanese cohorts, suffered in the balance sheets last year and slipped in device shipments, too. Its mobile unit strewn red ink for the first three quarters of 2016 and the holiday season didn’t bring it back above zero.
