Asus is reportedly preparing to launch six variants of its ZenFone 4 smartphone next month. The names of these devices have been spotted on the Asus Zentalk forum, revealing their model numbers and product names. The six smartphones include variants of the Zenfone 4, the Zenfone 4 Max, the Zenfone 4 Pro and the Zenfone 4 Selfie.
The listing reveals that the Zenfone 4 Max carries the model name Asus_X00ID and will be the direct successor to Zenfone 3 Max. As the name implies, it will feature a larger battery, paired with midrange specifications. The Zenfone 4 Pro with the model name Asus_Z01GD is a new device and it is not clear how this one will be different from the Zenfone 4 flagship.
The Zenfone 4 Selfie, on the other hand, has already appeared on GFXBench revealing its specifications. The handset is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 625 platform and will sport a 16MP rear camera, with support for 4K video recording. There will be a 12MP front camera also capable of shooting 4K videos.
Asus seems to be planning three variants of the flagship Zenfone 4, which should differ in terms of RAM and storage. There is also a variant named Zenfone 4V, with model number Asus_A006, which could be a Verizon-exclusive model. The Playfuldroid notes that all the six versions in the Zenfone 4 series are approved for Google services. Asus was rumoured to announce its Zenfone 4 series at Computex last month and reportedly delayed the launch until July, due to design and performance updates.
