Following the announcement of the ASUS ZenFone AR and Asus ZenFone Zoom 3, a new report suggests that ASUS is looking to ramp up sales over the course of the next few years.

According to a report from GizOK, which cites a Chinese publication dubbed Apple Daily, Asus is keen on doubling its smartphone business by 2020. In the next three years, Asus is hoping that with at least 40 million smartphone shipments under its belt, it can account for at least 3 percent of the total global smartphone shipments.

ASUS has also recently released the ASUS Pegasus 2 Plus in China, where the company has a strong foundation. But that was just the first move in a series of many to build upon the 20% growth in several markets, including 5% growth overall.

To achieve this target, Asus Mobile will undoubtedly have to establish a strong foothold in the U.S. market so that it can replicate the Asian success story on foreign shores. One of the possible ways of doing this is to tie up with network carriers in the U.S. for the sale of its products, instead of selling the unlocked handsets via third-party retailers.
