ASUS Zenvolution PH ZenFone 3 Series Launch

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

     If you visit us in our house, you'll only see one brand of gadget owned by my cousin-in-law, my husband, and yours truly- ASUS! No kidding, we are proud owners of ASUS brand products- My husband owns a ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0, I'm using a ZenFone 2 Laser 5.5, my cousin-in-law loves her ZenFone Go 5.5 and my laptop is an ASUS K555L model. So when I heard that ASUS will be launching their newest ZenFone 3 line-up months ago, I was static and of course can't hold my horses weeks before the launch.

     After weeks of day dreaming, clueless nights, and suspense, ASUS presented the Zenvolution in the Philippines in a grand launch held at Sofitel Philippines Plaza last August 14, 2016. The ASUS family together with media guests, bloggers, and fans was welcomed by ASUS Global CEO Jerry Shen. It's a grand launch because the all-new ASUS ZenFone 3 Series together with the premium ZenBook 3 and The Versatile Transformer 3 Series was unveiled all in the same day.
