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).
