So the time is 11:30am on January 4, 2017. What’s interesting is the Qualcomm logo. Asus CEO Jerry Shen indicated at the most recent investors conference that Qualcomm believed that there is a lot of potential for Asus in the smartphone business. Having this logo is an indication that a growing partnership may be underway. Asus and Intel has been the most common association. Now we see Qualcomm with Asus. This is a good thing for Asus!

So what do we see in the image? Looks like something zoomed. Magnified as it were. How about the Zenfone 3 Zoom (ZE553KL)? Certainly this is possible. It may also be an indicator of AR capabilities. Asus is on record as saying they have a Project Tango certified product coming soon.

So let’s hope for some juicy news and teasers as the lead up to CES 2017. Asus is going to be “bringing it” and we’re here to cover it all!
