Asus is primarily known as a computer maker, but it also makes smartphones its the ZenFone line. Most recently it released the ZenFone AR and 3 Zoom. Not much was known about what devices it would release in the future, but an accidental posting on its French website revealed that it has three brand new devices in the works.
The first is the ZenFone 4. It features a design very similar to the Honor 8 with the glass panels on the front and back and a dual camera system on the top left side. The listing reveals some impressive specs, including a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, Snapdragon 630 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage with expandability and a 3,300mAh battery. The camera system consists of a 12MP on the back and an 8MP camera up front. It will be available for 499€ ($587).
The second device is the ZenFone 4 Selfie. It falls in the budget phone category with its specs and price, but it appears to still be a solid phone nonetheless. The ZenFone 4 Selfie comes with a 5.5-inch 720p LCD display, Snapdragon 430 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 16MP main camera and a 3,000mAh battery. But as you probably guessed by the name of the phone, its specialty is focused on selfies. It features a dual camera system of 20MP and 8MP along with a flash on the front side.
Lastly, comes the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro. It looks identical to its brother, with the differences coming in specs. Outside it features an aluminum body the brings to mind the HTC M9 of a few years ago. Where it stands apart from the regular version is a better processor (Snapdragon 625), display (1080p AMOLED panel) and front cameras (24MP and 5MP).
The ZenFone 4 Selfie will retail for 299€ ($352) and the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro for 399€ ($469). Each of the devices will come with Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box.
Asus has scheduled an event for August 19, so it would seem we’re not too far away from the official unveiling of these devices.
