More than 200,000 ZenFone smartphones have been returned by angry Chinese due to problems when they tried to upgrade it from Android 4.4 to Android 5.0.
The naysayers and strokers of beards think that this will cane Asustek's bottom line and ZenFone 2 sales in China. Asustek's wanted global shipments of 25 million smartphones for 2015, which is starting to look less likely.
Asustek shipped three million ZenFones in the first quarter of 2015 and expects to ship 4.8 million units in the second, the sources said. The 2015 target shipments of 25 million ZenFones includes target shipments of eight million units in China.
Asustek expects to ship nearly two million ZenFones in June and aims to ship three million a month, mostly ZenFone 2 units, in the third quarter.
