Asus ZenFone 3 is certified by TENAA?
An Asus handset with the model number of Z00EDB has been certified in China by TENAA. This could be the Asus ZenFone 3, a lower priced handset than the Asus ZenFone 2, which recently was introduced to the U.S. With two LED flash lozenges on the back of the new model, we can see that this is a different phone than the ZenFone 2. The latter is a top-shelf model with a larger 5.5-inch screen and one variant features 4GB of RAM.

The Asus ZenFone 3 features a 5-inch Gorilla Glass 3 protected screen with a 720 x 1280 resolution. A 64-bit SoC is under the hood, containing a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and a Mail GPU. 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable memory. An 8MP camera with HDR mode is on back, and on front is a 5MP snapper for selfies. Android 5.0 is pre-installed and there is support for 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.

The ZenFone 3 also supports dual SIM capabilities, and the handset will be available in black, white, red, blue, purple, gold and silver. Asus is employing a metal build for this handset. Specific pricing and availability is unknown. However, now that the phone has appeared on TENAA, an official announcement from Asus shouldn't be terribly far away.

Zenfone2 is a new born baby, and here comes the twin-brother.

This looks aweful compared to the Zenfone 2.

Just another cheap Chinese tech. I hope they didn't copy anything from Sony.

So this is virtually just a metal-bodied version of the 5-inch zenfone2?

I do not believe that this is going to be Zenfone 3, most likely this will be Qualcomm/Mediatek based version of Zenfone 2 (most likely Zenfone 2 Lite) or Pegasus 2 designed for Asian market only as they did with first generation of Zenfone where Asus released Zenfone C (4.5") and Zenfone Lite for Philippines market. And specs of this phone are far from being Zenfone 3 which should be their next affordable flagship.
