Asus Zenfone 7 series has leaked yet again, just days ahead of its official launch on August 26. The Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro have been the centre of the rumour mill from quite some time now, with key specifications and even details on pricing leaked earlier this month. Today, details about the Zenfone 7 have been posted online in multiple leaks that give us a look at the design renders of the new phone by Asus.
The new leaks were posted online on Slashleaks including a picture of the retail box that reveals key specifications and renders of a transparent case for the Zenfone 7. These new details corroborated with our earlier report on the specifications of the Zenfone 7. The box reveals that the Zenfone 7 features a 6.67-inch Full HD+ display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor with a triple camera setup consisting of a primary 64MP camera, a 12MP secondary camera and an 8MP camera. The phone will come in multiple variants but the box details this variant as the one with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.
Another leak reveals the Zenfone 7’s transparent case and we can see that there are three cameras housed in the Flip camera mechanism. It can also be noted here that the Zenfone 7 is looking to feature a side-mounted fingerprint sensor as opposed to the rumoured in-display sensor. As per an earlier leak, the Zenfone 7 was spotted using a Goodix gf3626 sensor which was expected to be a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
It is also rumoured that the Zenfone 7 could feature a 60Hz display panel and it is the Zenfone 7 Pro that gets a high refresh-rate screen instead. Moreover, the retail packaging of the upcoming phone was also leaked online and posted on Twitter alongside a picture showcasing the back panel of the Zenfone 7.
Asus Zenfone 7 is slated to feature a 6.7-inch LCD screen with a Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 60Hz refresh rate. The Zenfone 7 will also come with a dedicated microSD card slot allowing users to expand the storage further. It is expected to come with a triple camera setup, housed in a flip camera module. The main camera, according to the leak is a 64MP Sony IMX686 followed by a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera and an 8MP camera
The latest Zenfone 7 leak also corroborates some earlier rumours that the Zenfone 7 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset while the Zenfone 7 Pro is expected to come with the Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset paired with up to 16GB RAM. The rumoured pricing of the phone pits at EUR 499 for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage and EUR 549 for the maxed-out variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.
This roughly translates to a starting price of around Rs 44,000 by direct conversion. Considering that the Asus 6Z was launched in India starting at Rs 31,999, we expect the company to go aggressive with the pricing of the Zenfone 7/Asus 7Z in India. However, there’s currently no word as to when the Zenfone 7 will launch in India.
