ASUS considering spinning off handset department according to report

We heard rumblings some time ago about the inner turmoil that is the ASUS handset business among top executives. Of course reports and speculation aren’t always factual in nature. The inside sources at that time suggested that ASUS was putting everything into the ZenFone launch here in 2018 to see what the future would hold. Seems that ASUS has spoken to this speculation.

According to a report from Digitimes, ASUS is considering spinning off its handset department. What this entails? Hard to say. It’s hard to think of it as an optimistic future however. We are hoping that if it comes to “spinning off” the handset department there is enough for us to keep going.

“Asustek has also been considering spinning off its handset department, but the plan is still in discussion, the sources said.” —

So as a website that is 100% dependent on ZenFone news and products, it’s safe to say the future is uncertain. Terrific mobile phones don’t always get the ears of the tech media and that certainly has been an issue. It’s a tough nut to crack and to say there is a lot of competition would be a serious understatement.

We are only a tiny insignificant grain of sand when it comes to ASUS product coverage, but we have data over the course of a number of years where we can gleam some indicators on how the ZenFone releases are faring.

Stay tuned folks!
