Asus Zenfone 4 Pro benchmark confirms Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB RAM

At least four new Asus smartphones will be announced on August 17, all part of the ZenFone series: ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Selfie, ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro and ZenFone 4 Max.

But there's a fifth smartphone that Asus may unveil along with the other four, the ZenFone 4 Pro, which may actually be the company's flagship for the rest of the year.

Unlike the standard ZenFone 4, the Pro version comes with a much better SoC (system-on-chip) and more RAM inside. Luckily, the phone appeared recently on GFXBench, your go to benchmarking portal, so we've been able to learn a couple of things about its specs.

For starters, Asus ZenFone 4 Pro comes equipped with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 835 processor, coupled with an Adreno 540 GPU (graphics processing unit) and no less than 6GB RAM.

On top of that, the smartphone will pack 64GB internal memory (hopefully expandable) and, possibly, a 12-megapixel dual-camera setup on the back. The readings from the benchmark app say the ZenFone 4 Pro will feature an 8-megapixel camera in the front and that the phone will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

And that's all we get so far from the ZenFone 4 Pro benchmark. However, a previous report highlights some other specs of the phone, like a 5.5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution and a 3,600 mAh battery. Also, the smartphone is rumored to cost just $650 outright, or €550 in Europe.

1080p screen with 3600mah, I'm already liking this phone, probably has better battery life than most flagships.

With app and root you can change the resolution, so I wouldn't mind phone with higher resolution.

You don't need Root to change screen resolution , just adb : adb shell For 1080p : wm size 1080x1920 For 720p: wm size 720x1280 To check default and modified: wm size Same with DPI.

It's not the same. When you run a lower than native resolution, all pixels are still lit. You just get less workload on the GPU but the screen is drawing same amount of power. That's why Samsung phones with deferent resolution settings barely affect battery life.

LOL, it's so nice that the people on Phone Arena have come to their senses about phone display resolutions. 1080 is plenty unless you want to do VR, but in my experience, 1440 isn't enough to allow for a truly immersive experience.

Yeah, but 1440p is way better for VR than 1080p, so I'll take QuadHD over FullHD any day.

im certain the ones who say 1080p is enough dont use qhd screens. I was the same. eh, 1080p is enough. till I got a qhd phone and that was it. never 1080p. and yes its easily noticeable.

Well, I own a Nexus 6P which has a resolution of 1440p, and I still use my 2013 Moto X for various tasks which is 720p and both screens look just fine... aside from a little image burn that is. But resolution wise, 1080p is perfectly fine for those who want a sharp looking display and have no interest in using VR.

I can notice the difference yet average QHD content displayed on my phone is not as much as I thought, videos and photos.

I'm using an S7 right now, 1440 is over kill, can't see a difference between it and 1080 unless I hold it near my face, and than the difference is minimal. Has the Note 3 and 4, same size display, one was 1080 other 1440, I couldn't tell the difference in normal use.

Because VR is something most people use every day.

Personally I can't tell 1080p and 1440p apart unless the phone is a few inches from my face, I don't have my phone that close unless I use VR. VR still looks like a screen door at 1440 on my Gear VR, we need 4k or better for VR.

Now... only if ASUS could do something about their software.

Hmmm. The 835 snapdragon processor, 1080p, and 3600mAh battery sounds great. The 6GB RAM, definitely doesn't hurt either.
