Asus Zenfone 7 Pro pricing to start at €500 says leakster

Peter, 18 August 2020

Asus is expected to launch the new Zenfone 7 on August 26 – actually, rumor has it that there will be two models, one with the Snapdragon 865 and one with the 865+.

The latter is tentatively dubbed “Asus Zenfone 7 Pro” and according to leakster Roland Quandt it will cost €550. In this version, the chipset will be paired with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB storage.

Quandt says that there will also be a 6/128 GB version priced at €500, presumably still with the Snapdragon 865+ (though 6 GB of RAM seems odd next to the chipset found in most flagship gaming phones right now). Battery capacity should be 5,000 mAh.

An Asus I002D, likely the Zenfone 7, ran a few trials at Geekbench. The benchmark reports a Snapdragon 865 chipset (aka “kona”, it’s not clear if this is the plus or not), as well as 8 GB of RAM. The software is based on Android 10 and since this is Asus, it should be pretty close to stock.

The Zenfone 7 duo might prove an interesting alternative to OnePlus phones whose price has gone up quite a bit since the beginning. There's very little info about the Zenfone's screen and cameras, however. If you remember, last year's model had a flip up cam acting as both rear and front cameras.

Judging by this teaser video from Asus, it looks like the Zenfone 7 will have a flip up camera as well - there's no notch or punch hole visible anywhere on the screen.

Yeah. That is good news. Just a shame about the 60Hz refresh rate, I really thought they'd use something better this time especially since the phone will have SD865 which is more than capable of driving higher framerates.

Stop spreading false information.

It is confirmed an LCD man I am so happy
