After a successful stint with the ZenFone 3 lineup in 2016, Asus Mobile is likely to introduce its ZenFone 4 smartphone series in the coming months.

As such, Asus is hoping the upcoming launch of the Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom in February, combined with the upcoming Asus Zenfone AR, and the rumoured new Zenfone 4 series, will help improve shipment numbers and earnings this year, according to the sources.

Reportedly, an Asus device bearing the model number X00GD was spotted on a TENAA, the Chinese regulatory body in January. The device could possibly be a mid-range member of the ZenFone 4 lineup as it was powered by a 4,850mAh battery.

We'll just have to wait to find out if this is indeed one of these rumoured Zenfone 4 phones, so stay tuned for the latest.
