Asus has not officially revealed release date and specifications of its upcoming device dubbed as the Zenfone 3 but almost every detail of the product has made it online. Now, more features of the device have been leaked, hinting that it could be released earlier than expected.
It was reported that release date of the Asus Zenfone 3 should be pushed to 2016 with the ZenFone 2 Facelift expected to be launched later this year. Jerry Shen, Chief Executive of Asus, had earlier told YugaTech (via GSMArena) that Asus would follow Apple's naming convention, throwing up a hint that launch of the Zenfone 3 might happen next year.
However, a smartphone with model number ASUS Z00EDB has been spotted on TENAA (via TechGadgetsz) with features upgraded from the ZenFone 2, possibly the ZenFone 3. The report added that volume rocker and dual LED flash in the device have hinted that it could be the ZenFone 3.
According to a report by TechGadgetsz, the Asus Zenfone 3 will sport a 5.0-inch IPS display with resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and screen protected by Gorilla Glass 3, powered by Quad-Core 64-bit Processor clocking at 1.2 GHz, Mali GPU, and run on Android 5.0 Lollipop. It is expected to house an 8 MP main camera with LED Flash, low-light image, HDR mode, and 5 MP front snapper, and come packed with 16 GB internal memory expandable up to 32GB and 2 GB RAM.
The device will be available in black, white, red, blue, purple, gold, and silver colour, and come with sensors like G-Sensor, Gravity, Proximity, and Light. Coming to connectivity, it may support 3G, GPRS/ EDGE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro-USB, and Bluetooth v4.0, and USB OTG.
