The Zenfone lineup isn't going anywhere, Asus says

Asus was also said to cut down the number of employees in its PC departments in China and Taiwan. While Asus hasn't commented about lay-offs in the PC department, the brand assured that its Zenfone and ROG Phone product lineups will not be discontinued.
