As is traditional with device launches today, details of two of ASUS’ upcoming smartphones have leaked out a week before their unveiling. The two phones in question are the ASUS Zenfone 4 and the Zenfone 4 Pro.
The details, leaked by serial tipster Roland Quandt, reveal that the Zenfone 4 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 platform with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. He says that the device will go on sale for $400.
Quandt says that the Zenfone 4 Pro will be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 835 platform and will offer 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage for $650. As he points out in his tweet, the Zenfone 4 Pro, at that price, could indeed be a worthy OnePlus 5 alternative.
The devices are set to debut on 17 August in the US and 19 August in India. A new range of Zenfone devices is expected at the launch.
Judging by the invites sent out by Asus, we’re expecting to see a dual-camera setup along the lines of that on the iPhone 7 Plus. In other words, it’s likely that the dual-camera setup will include a regular lens and a telephoto lens.
