Asus is planning to launch six variants of its Zenfone 4 series smartphones later this year. Apart from three variants of the flagship Zenfone 4, the company is expected to announce the Zenfone 4 Pro, Zenfone 4 Max and Zenfone 4 Selfie. While the smartphones were expected to launch next month, a new leak suggests a September 21 launch.
Asus has reportedly started sending out media invites for an event to be held in Rome on September 21, reports GSMArena. Asus is expected to announce the Zenfone 4 lineup for the European market. It is not clear whether this event will also see the global launch of these devices.
The invite comes with a tagline "Take A Walk On The Wide Side" hinting at wide-angle camera smartphone. Ahead of the launch, Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie has been benchmarked at GFXBench revealing some of its specifications. The handset sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display and is powered by Snapdrahon 625 chipset coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage.
As the name implies, it sports a 12MP selfie camera with support for 4K video recording. There is a 16MP camera on the back with support for 4K video recording. It runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat with ZenUI on top. There is not much clarity on the other Zenfone 4 series variants but it should be revealed ahead of official announcement.
