The ASUS Zenfone 2 has managed to create a lot of buzz, and, while we are still yet to review the device ourselves, it does need no introduction. However, opposed to the current flagship model, which is powered by Intel’s chips (Atom Z3560 and Atom Z3580 for the 2- and 4GB versions, respectively), future phones in the mid-range, and mid-to-high-end range will likely be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 SoC (a 32- and 64-bit compatible octa-core chip).

The information comes from ASUS CEO Jerry Shen, who talked about future devices in an interview embedded below. Shen consider’s Apple’s naming convention (iPhone 5, iPhone 6, etc.) to be the way to go, and ASUS will also employ it, so prepare to expect the Zenfone 3 (no longer screen sizes, but phone generations). ASUS is also preparing to have a “generation” every year, in terms of its roadmap. In-between, there might a refresh, an incremental upgrade, a la Apple.

You can find more details in the video interview below.
