Asus is getting all engines ready for Computex 2016, and the ZenFone 3 is one of the expected revelations of the event.
The manufacturer is expected to showcase a number of Zen-branded items at the Taipei event, which runs from May 31 to June 4.
One day prior to the beginning of Computex, Asus will go public and unveil its most recent devices. To boost the hype, the company even deployed a special webpage with a huge countdown timer in it.

During the May 30 event, Asus will present the ZenFone 3 series. Looking at the previous experiences (read: ZenFone 2 launch), there will be a number of various models carrying the Zen prefix.
We expect to see a few ZenPad slates and ZenBook laptops, and it may not be far-fetched to gaze upon a ZenWatch. Seeing how popular virtual reality is this year, it may not be out of this world for Asus to pull a ZenVR headset out of its hat.
What is certain, however, is that Intel will provide processing power for some of the items that will be revealed during the "Zenvolution" on May 30. It would be interesting to see if only the computers got Intel's hardware or some of the mobile devices will get the best of the OEM, as well.
An unofficial press render leak from last month shows the ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 3 Deluxe, spoiling some of the details about the devices' technical specs.
First off, it is clear that the ZenFone 3 will come with a fingerprint sensor.
The device will also come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, regardless of model.
Looking at the exterior build, a full metal body and a glass and metal chassis are in tow.
Rumors hint that the Zenfone 3 will pack a 5.5-inch screen capable of displaying resolutions of 1,080 x 1,920p. The processing power of the handset will come from pairing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 CPU and 3 GB of RAM.
While the Zenfone 3 Deluxe is expected to share some of its hardware with the Zenfone 3, the premium edition of the smartphone should pack a larger, 5.9-inch HD screen with a purported resolution of 1,280 x 720p.
