If you thought that ASUS was done with all the Zenfone 3 announcements, you’d be wrong. The company recently announced a fourth member of its Zenfone 3 family, though the new device is possibly destined as a China-only device. The new phone, dubbed the Zenfone Pegasus 3, sports an all-metal body despite the budget price tag.
