It seems like Asus may stick with the flip camera design for its next flagship smartphones. According to a report by TNNToday.com Asus plans to launch two smartphones in the Asus ZenFone 7 series, namely the ZenFone 7 and the ZenFone 7 Pro. Both these devices are tipped to feature the flip camera design that was introduced in the Asus ZenFone 6Z. It should also be noted that if/when Asus launches these devices in India, it will most likely end up calling them the Asus 7 and Asus 7 Pro, similar to what it had to do with the Asus 6Z.
Details of the Asus 7 series are not yet confirmed, but the phone was recently spotted on Geekbench a few days back. According to the listing, the phone will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and run Android 10, which is pretty much par for the course as far as 2020 flagships are concerned. However, what would set the Asus 7 apart would be the 16GB RAM that the device is touted to offer
But before the Asus 7 (or Asus ZenFone 7), the Taiwanese-company will be more focused on unveiling the latest version of its ROG series of gaming phones. Called the Asus ROG Phone 3, the device is scheduled to launch in India on July 22, which is the same day as the device’s global launch. The new phone is confirmed to pack the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC, which is tipped to offer an improved gaming performance. The chip will also power the Lenovo Legion 5G gaming smartphone that is scheduled to launch on the same day, albeit few hours ahead of the ROG Phone’s launch. The new Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset has an improved 10 per cent performance over the Snapdragon 865 which means that the prime core can now run at up to 3.1GHz clock speeds with 10% boost in graphics rendering.
