Asus is the latest company to come out and reveal its plans for Android 5.0 Lollipop with the news that several of its smartphones are in line for the update to Google's latest and greatest software.

The Taiwanese company said that the ZenFone range and some of its PadFone products will be getting upgraded to Android 5.0. The ZenFone 4, ZenFone 5, and ZenFone 6 are some of the company's successful low to mid-range offerings and it is nice to see that they are being supported through the latest full Android release.

Also in-line for a lick of the Lollipop are the PadFone S and the PadFone Infinity 2, both handsets that come with a tablet dock, making them convertible products of sorts. The PadFone X or the PadFone X Mini have not been mentioned for the Android 5.0 upgrade, but as newer devices they are likely to get it at some point.

As for the ZenFone, it is rumoured that a new range will be released in 2015 and the success of the originals could amount to 8 million units for Asus. The company also has a strong tablet presence, but has yet to confirm any Android plans for its slates.
