Asus ZenFone 4 Pro poses for pictures, reveals dual cameras with 2x zoom, Android 7.1.1 Nougat


Asus has been having some trouble bringing its ZenFone 4 series to the market: last we heard, the new series (ZenFone 4 Max notwithstanding) was said to be released in August, which is a 4 months delay. Despite that, we haven't actually seen any major leaks of the four yet unannounced devices — until now.

Italian website DDay.it has recently posted what appear to be real-life photos of the ZenFone 4 Pro, which show a couple of very interesting facts about the device. Firstly, just as Asus itself has been teasing, the device comes with a dual rear-facing camera. And it appears the configuration is of the variety with 2x zoom, while the site speculates the camera module will be a 21 MP one.

DDay also claims the device's specs will be very firmly rooted in the high end: a Snapdragon 835 SoC, coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. A photo of the device's about screen reveals it's running Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and it has a model number ASUS_Z01GS.


And in other news, Asus Taiwan's Facebook page has recently began what appears to be a contest for users to guess its celebrity spokesperson for the ZenFone 4 line. Given that his identity will be revealed on August 1, we imagine the debut of the series itself will follow shortly thereafter.

Thanks for the tip!

The trend of dual cameras is on fire . Even midrangers aren't kept untouched.

OEMs should start putting 4,500 to 5,500 mAh batteries on their high end phones. It's a shame that most phones with huge capacities are mid rangers.

While I agree with you, I think it's the classification of the phone that make this segmentation. The high end phone (flagship) is like Lamborghini/Ferrari. It's main purpose is to be sexy & fast. Thus, it's slim (small battery). The huge battery is in SUV/MPV category. Some with 'regular size' screen (5"-5.5") that I categorized into SUV (still small and sexy, but with big battery). Some other with 'big' screen such as 6" Galaxy C9 Pro / Galaxy A9 Pro, and also the new Oppo with 6" display & SD 660 chipset which I think fall into MPV category (big body with big functionality)

looks like a decent phone: big specs and if it's anything like its predecessors it shopuld be affordable. my only question is: how is asus in terms of long-term software support (ie. updates)?

Damn, this phone is too huge. It has way too big bezels. It may have good specs, but if it is too big, a lot of people will skip it.

What's with these Asian companies ditching their original design and blatantly copying apple's 3 years ago design? At least put some effort into making a distinct design like Huawei and Samsung.
