ASUS is launching the Zenfone 7 next week. A leak already revealed the price of the phone in Europe and it is cheaper than most of the phones from competitors. Another leak has now revealed the specs of the device and it shows that ASUS has made some tradeoffs to keep the price low.
The specs of the Zenfone 7 were found in the kernel source of the ROG Phone 3 by the tech blog ReaMeizu. They have reported that the flagship will feature an LCD display supplied by BOE. The screen size is put at 6.4-inches with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 60Hz. The low refresh rate is pretty disappointing in a world where even mid-range phones with LCD panels have a high refresh rate.
Since it is an LCD panel, the fingerprint scanner is not buried under the display. The source says the scanner is supplied by Goodix and might be on the back of the phone or on the side where it doubles as the power button.
The code also revealed that the Zenfone 7 is powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor and not the Snapdragon 865 Plus as some sources have reported. It has support for a MicroSD card that is believed will sit in a triple card SIM tray.
Indian leaker, Abhishek Yadav, posted a tweet listing the aforementioned specifications. However, he adds that the Zenfone 7 will have triple rear cameras that consist of a 64MP Sony IMX686 main camera, a 12MP IMX363 ultrawide angle camera, and a ToF camera.
It has been reported in earlier leaks that the phone will have a 5000mAh battery. It should also run Android 10 out of the box and be eligible for two OS upgrades when it launches.
