Asus releases CES 2017 ZenFone video teaser, new phone (or phones) incoming

Asus will be announcing new devices on January 4, during a CES 2017 event. The company today released a teaser video letting us know that at least one of the upcoming devices is a ZenFone smartphone.

The teaser video, which can be watched above, shows off a mysterious handset that should - according to Asus - enable "incredible exploration without limitations." While Asus doesn't provide more details, this handset could be the ZenFone 3 Zoom.

Spotted earlier this month in China, the ZenFone 3 Zoom features a dual rear camera that may offer optical zoom in the same manner that Apple's iPhone 7 Plus does. But this won't be a high-end phone, as it's expected to be powered by a mid-range Snapdragon 625 processor. The rest of its features should include a 5.5-inch 1080p display, up to 4 GB of RAM, up to 64 GB of internal memory, and a very large 4,850 mAh battery.

At the moment, the ZenFone 3 Zoom name is unconfirmed. In any case, this upcoming device seems to be a thinner successor to the original ZenFone Zoom (released in the US at the beginning of this year).

Asus will be streaming its CES 2017 ZenFone event live, via the source link below.

Does this device work on CDMA 800 MHz networks, such as Verizon Wireless, Sprint, US cellular in the United States of America and Perfectum in Uzbekistan?

Backlight the keys on the ZenFone and I might try one... Can't believe they didn't fix that with the ZF3...
