Roland Quant has leaked the new Asus devices. Russian tech blog, Mobiletelefon, has also stated that the upcoming phone is the successor to the Zenfone Max Pro (M1) which is based on the first two alphabets of the model number (ZB) that is the same as the Max Pro (ZB601KL). The site states that the figure “63” refers to a 6.3-inch display screen while the alphabets “K” and “L” hint at the Snapdragon processor and 4G LTE, respectively. Rumors suggest that the ASUS ZB634KL is likely to launch as the Zenfone Max Pro (M2).
Don't be surprised when ASUS launches what I think is its first Chrome OS tablet ~10inch screen. Could be one of the devices we get to see at #CES2019.— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) November 12, 2018
Asus is also working on another device with the model number ASUS ZB632KL which has a triple camera setup as well. The model numbers are ZB631KL, and ZB633KL which is the Zenfone Max (M2).
ASUS is reportedly working on a Chrome OS tablet, which comes after Acer Chromebook Tab 10 and the Pixel Slate. Chrome OS comes with a number of features as it is the same on all devices, irrespective of the manufacturers. Chrome OS doesn’t come with custom skins like Android devices, which means a consistent UI. All the updates on Chrome OS are handled by Google, and the internet giant states that all devices will receive updates for at least 6 years from when the chipset appeared on the platform. Asus Chrome OS Tablet is likely to be unveiled at the CES 2019 event in Jan.
