Asus Zenfone 6 is one of the most exceptional devices from last year. It came stuffed with two cameras on a motorized swivel that could act as both front and rear shooters. Now Asus has confirmed the launch date of its Zenfone 7 series. The predecessors of this series perpetually have played against the likes of OnePlus series of smartphones and this year’s launch seem to have been delayed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Asus silently listed a live-stream link of the Asus Zenfone 7 series’ launch, confirming the August 26 launch date. It is worth noting that Asus is calling this as Asus Zenfone 7 series, hinting that there will be more than one device this time. These devices could likely be called as Asus Zenfone 7 and Asus Zenfone 7 Pro. As far as the live stream video’s image is concerned, it reveals a little information about the device, but essentially centers on the launch event details.
Qualcomm has already confirmed that the Asus Zenfone 7 will be powered by Snapdragon 865 SoC, as for the Pro variant, we assume it to come to the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC. A Geekbench leak hinted that the phone may pack 16 GB of RAM, if that is too much for you, Asus will also launch the lower RAM options. The Geekbench listing also suggested that the phone will run Android 10 out of the box.
Asus Zenfone 7 is expected to feature a 6.7-inch display with up to 512 GB of onboard storage and will be backed by a 4115 mAh battery. The device also packs in a 30W fast charger within the box. Given the latest SoCs, we expect the devices to come with 5G support. It would be interesting to see if Asus will extend that modular camera setup. But that is not very likely to happen, as, from the teased Live video’s image, we can understand that the device might come with vertical aligned quad cameras.
Even if Asus pulled-off the mechanism here, it would be weird to look at. We can expect the device to come with a punch-hole camera notch on the front. But then again, it is too soon to say anything, we will have to wait another week to find out whats the Taiwanese giant is hiding under its sleeve with its upcoming flagship series.
