There’s a 5.5-inch Asus ZenFone in the works, arriving early next year

For those who find the 6-inch screen size too big and the 5-inch one a tad too small, the 5.5-inch Asus ZenFone should suffice. Apparently, that’s what the company is currently working on, and it plans to unveil it early next year, at CES 2015.
At the same event this year, Asus introduced the world to its new range of Intel-powered smartphones named the ZenFone 4, the ZenFone 5 and the ZenFone 6, with their displays sized in accordance to the numbers in the names. But some time after that, it also launched a 4.5-inch model of the ZenFone 4.

It’s hence no surprise that similar treatment is being given to the 5-inch model as well, by prepping up a 5.5-inch version. And while last year’s handsets were targeted mainly towards emerging markets, the 2015 models will be aimed at big playing grounds like the US and China as well.
