CES 2014: Asus ZenFone 6 is massive, should be cheap

1:27 /

This jumbo mobile has a 13-megapixel camera and an Intel processor. Hit play for more details.

Hello, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2014. We're taking a look at this is the Asus 10.6, a massive smartphone with all the trimmings. So let's go through the tech that's on-board here. The 6-inch display has a 720p resolution. If you flip this phone around, on the back it's got a 13 megapixel camera. I'm not blown away by how light and thin it is, but I do like the design and it comes in a range of lovely bright colors. It's running on android version 4.3, which isn't the very latest version but Asus says the new update will be coming. Something quite interesting is that this phone is powered by an Intel Atom chip. I'll be interested to see how that processor performs in our benchmark test. If you happen to love the design, but don't want a phone this big, then Asus has also made the Zenfone 5 and the Zenfone 4 in the series and they're 5-inch and 4-inch phones respectively. Do be aware though that as you go down in size the specifications become less impressive. Asus says the Zenfone 6 should be coming out in Asia in the next few months, but unfortunately there's no US release yet. I'm not blown away by any particular aspect of this smartphone, but what may Asus could be in the edge is to make it very, very cheap and having spoken to them, I think it really could be bought affordable. Let me know if you're interested and check out CES. CNET.com for more.
