Lol rebadged Reno 4 how shameless.

Whenever I looked at the Nord, I felt I have seen something similar before. When you see the images & specs of Oppo Reno 4 and Nord side by side, you can see its just a rebadged Oppo with some changes. All that emotional manufacturing story is just marketing.

Mediatek sux, 13 Jul 2020Huh? So just 30-35k?Yes, very likely. They always manage to launch with the top chip every year with INR 35k price tag. They'll be trying to get both Nord and OP 8 customers and this site has itself confirmed the Snapdragon 865 chipset (https://www.gsmarena.com/asus_rog_phone_3_appears_in_short_video_zenfone_7_may_have_passed_through_geekbench-news-43843.php ) for the phone, while the Nord will get only SD 765.

AsusUserHere, 12 Jul 2020I believe you are wrong about one big detail: Zenfone 7 wou... moreHi, nice to see another Asus user here. The latest rumor(at N0tebook check) was that ZF 7 would have 2 variants in OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro style . But they might use Snapdragon 865 for ZF 7 and SD 865+ for ZF 7+ (since, its already in ROG 3).
They'll probably keep the specs of ZF 7 a little lower than OP 8 (like no AMOLED) and price, a little more than Nord (around INR 30-34k, like you said).
Similarly, for ZF 7+, specs a little lower than OP 8 Pro( like no 120Hz, no 12 GB RAM) & price just a bit more than OP 8 (like INR 40-45k). Since, OnePlus was launched in April, and Asus ones will be launched in August, the price of SD 865 will have come down within their range. Tthey are getting tons of Sd 865+ for Asus ROG 3, that means they can provide it at the same price range as last year approx. otherwise they would have gone for SD 865 only.
SD855 was costly too (around $100) but they did put it, so maybe they'll manage Sd 865 too($150). They cut cost with things like no selfie camera, by using their swivel cameras.
The Zenfone 6 was launched at Rs. 35,000 not that expensive and came down to around 27,000 at the end, the same happened with ZF 5z, so its normal, nothing do with poor sales.
But, what you say (can you provide some link for your source?) is plausible too about the SD 768, if they go with a good camera & display, so waiting 10 days for the official announcement is the best way IMO. Anyway,sorry for the late reply.

Pete Lau, 13 Jul 2020Is $399 a reasonable price for all of you guys? We are expecting less than 399$

If the price for this mobile goes above 25 k means its waste to buy.

Forget it gimmick

Anonymous, 12 Jul 2020Why not? The iPhone SE and the Pixel #a get love... OnePlus... moredon't tell me you want to put these three on the same level lol

JDK, 12 Jul 2020It's note 500 euros. It's UNDER 500 euros.Current streetprice for Xioami Mi 10 Lite 5G is already under 300€ and Oneplus never get a big discount, Oneplus 7t has still a high price. Think about that.

A 500€ this doesn't deserve so much hype...

I expect the Zenfone 7 'Pro' to probably cost 40,000INR (About $550) while the Normal Zenfone 7 to cost around 30,000INR (About $400) similar to Nord.

It is best to wait but don't hold high expectations. Zenfone 6 wasn't cheap at launch either (only low sales made way for deep discounts)

Nope its nothing like redmi.

All phones have something made in China. There are no alternatives out there. Its ok i guess to buy until equal alternatives are available

Anonymous, 11 Jul 2020Near vanilla clean OS, yes. Timely update no... Not for lot... moreAtleast the flagship Zenfone series like Zenfone 5, ZF 6 get updated timely, there are lots of news about that on GSMArena itself. Also Zenfone 6 has official Lineage custom ROM, upcoming Zenfone would also have that support too, because of the specs they have.
