ASUS teases a new smartphone and ZenWatch 2 in IFA 2015 promo video
IFA 2015 officially begins on September 4th, but that never stops major technology companies from announcing their new products early. Samsung will likely unveil its new Gear S2 smartwatch at the big conference, and Huawei has already begun teasing a new “unique” smartphone that will be unveiled in Berlin as well. Now it’s time for ASUS to join in on the hype train, as the company earlier today announced that it would hold a press event at IFA 2015 on Wednesday, September 2nd.
[related_videos title=”The latest from ASUS” align=”right” type=”custom” videos=”634863,631333,600854,568780″]So, what will ASUS show off? According to a teaser video posted on the company’s Facebook page, we’re getting a few brief glimpses at what could be unveiled. Alongside what looks to be a couple new computers, there are also a few quick images of what look to be a new smartphone and smartwatch.
As you can see from the first image attached below, the textured button shown in the image looks identical to the buttons ASUS has been including in its most recent smartphones. This is unfortunately the only teaser we’re seeing of a new smartphone, but we’d be surprised if it turned out to be anything else. What the new device might be, we have no clue. If you have any guesses, we’d love to hear them in the comments below.
Also shown off in the video are a few images of a smartwatch. The images are quite blurry, but it’s easy to see that this is the same ZenWatch 2 that was unveiled at Computex back in June. In fact, these teaser clips are the same clips that were featured in the announcement video for the watch, which you can see for yourself here. The company still hasn’t released any availability details for the new watch, but it looks like we’ll know more once September 2nd rolls around.
So, who’s excited? Have you been waiting to get your hands on a new ZenWatch, or are you holding out for Fossil’s new Android Wear device?
