The ZenFone series by Asus is a line-up that includes low to mid-range and upper mid-range devices that feature both Qualcomm Snapdragon and MediaTek processors.

“Asus announced late on Thursday that its long-time CEO Jerry Shen is quitting ahead of ‘a comprehensive corporate transformation’ — part of which involves a new co-CEO structure, as well as a major shift in mobile strategy to focus on gamers and power users,” Engadget reported quoting the BusinessNext website.

Shen was in charge of the launch of Asus’ PadFone series, Transformer series, ZenBook series and ZenFone series.

Shen told the Engadget that he would be off to run a new IoT start-up iFast as chairman and CEO, with its business targeting B2B applications. However, he would still maintain a connection with the tech major, thanks to its 30% stake in his new venture.
