Asus ZenFone 4 could pack 5.7-inch QHD display, 6GB RAM (Updated)

Asus ZenFone 4 could pack 5.7-inch QHD display, 6GB RAM (Updated)
UPDATE: Judging by the specs listed at GFXBench, it looks like this is, in fact, the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe running Android 7.0 Nougat.

Asus introduced two new smartphones about a month ago at CES 2017, the ZenFone AR and ZenFone 3 Zoom, but the Taiwanese company is expected to unveil at least one other handset later this month.

The elusive ZenFone 4 leaked a couple of times in the last few weeks, but the phone might finally be announced at MWC 2017 in late February. According to a recent listing at GFXBench, the ZenFone 4 could be Asus' new flagship smartphone, which was previously rumored to hit the shelves in May.

Although the device comes equipped with last year's top-of-the-line chip, the Snapdragon 820, the ZenFone 4 packs no less than 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal memory. Another impressive trait of the unannounced ZenFone 4 is the large 5.7-inch display that supports Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution.

Some other details related to the camera setup and software are mentioned in the benchmark too. First of all, the ZenFone 4 will run Android 7.0 Nougat, which isn't surprising for a flagship device. Secondly, it will pack a 21-megapixel rear-facing snap shooter, as well as a secondary 8-megapixel selfie camera, which completes the list of partial specs revealed.

Based on the previous experience with Asus' Android smartphones lineup, it's safe to assume the company will launch multiple ZenFone 4 variants with different amounts of memory; possible different chipsets too.

One thing I don't like about ASUS is they take forever and a day to release their lineup. I'm very interested in the ZenFone 3 Zoom. Has a great camera sensor and image processing technology and other hardware and software features (EIS, OIS, and Dual-layer PDAF). They just recently announced it. But we're in 2017 where they're about to announce their ZenFone 4 lineup. So what are we gonna get ZenFone 4 Zoom in early 2018 and have the ZenFone 5 lineup announced shortly after with a release months to follow? I don't see why they don't release their lineup closer together.

Asus is sure to launch a Zenfone 4 deluxe that will likely have the latest chip. Like what they did last year with the Zenfone 3 and 3 deluxe.

I felt the same way too. Then I did my research. Though it's not the latest Snapdragon chipset, the Snapdragon 625 is very battery efficient. It always performs rather well. If it can match the Snapdragon 808 for the most part, I'm good. I rather have exceptional battery life, great camera, and a well performing processor than worrying about having the latest and greatest processor. It's real world performance that really counts. I have had the 808 in 2 smartphones, and I have had no issue besides some over heating from time to time.

I'm big on compactness regardless of screen size. I check the weight and dimensions when I see a new phone that looks interesting. The thing that has always turned me off of Asus phones is that they are usually wider than similar phones of the same screen size. They seem to like big bezels, as in their Nexus 7 tablet - the widest bezels ever resulting in the ugliest looking tablet ever made.

Asus has the worst aftersales service I've ever encountered. Bought Zenfone 3 Zoom few weeks ago, noticed White Line issue on the display. Tried to search about it on the internet, and tadah! ALL* Zenfone 3 Zoom have the said issue. Tried calling them, and they kept ignoring me. They only replace said units with ANOTHER unit which has the same problem after a week. No permanent solution. Asus fan no more. #Zenfone #Asus #ZenfoneWhiteLine
