ASUS has announced a bevy of new smartphones at their CES press event today. The main focus was the affordable Zenfone lineup, which consists of the ASUS Zenfone 4, Zenfone 5, and Zenfone 6.

All of these devices utilize Intel’s dual-core Atom chipsets, which means they’re meant to be a rather affordable bunch. Here’s a quick look at each:

ASUS Zenfone 4

  • 4-inch 800 x 480 display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Atom
  • 5 megapixel camera, VGA front camera
  • $99

ASUS Zenfone 5

  • 5-inch 720p display
  • 2GHz dual-core Intel Atom
  • PenTouch and Glove support
  • 8 megapixel camera, 2 megapixel front camera
  • $149

ASUS Zenfone 6

  • 6-inch 720p display
  • 2GHz dual-core Intel Atom
  • 13 megapixel camera, 2 megapixel front camera
  • $200

All of these smartphones will be running the new ZenUI ASUS has crafted, a simplistic UI on top of Android 4.3 which features the ability to change themes, get a daily agenda showing you everything you need to do and remember, a call back reminder feature, and more.

ASUS also came to town with the Padfone Mini, a 4-inch smartphone that can be paired with a 7-inch tablet dock for those times where you need something a tad bigger. Coming in at just $249, this thing has a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Atom chipset, 8GB of internal storage and 800 x 480 resolution.

We won’t be rolling out the red carpet for this thing, though you can’t really ask for much more out of this combo for just under $250. ASUS hasn’t come out with any availability details for any of these devices, but it’s safe to say that we’ll be seeing them in various markets (likely not the United States, though) later this year. Stay tuned as we look to get some personal time with these little ones at CES 2014.
