The Asus ZenFlash accessory is a "Xenon flash dongle," and can be connected to smartphones via USB OTG. The device can stick to the phone's rear panel and is said to offer "400 times" brighter flash than the usual LED flash. Asus has not yet detailed the compatibility of the accessories.
The Asus LolliFlash, as the name suggests, comes in a shape of Lollipop and is a dual-tone LED torch for phones - Asus has once again not detailed the compatibility.
