ASUS Zenfone 3 and Zenfone 3 Deluxe, the upcoming flagship devices from ASUS and the successor of Zenfone 2 and Zenfone 2 Deluxe, have surfaced on the Internet. Both the smartphones’ leaked renders and specifications were listed on Red Dot 21 (the page doesn’t exist anymore).
ASUS Zenfone 3 Rumoured Specifications
The ASUS Zenfone 3 will come with a thin aluminium design and sport 2.5D glass on both the front and rear side of the device. If we go by the rendered images, the smartphone will have a square rear camera module, that would be accompanied by a dual tone LED flash and a Laser Auto Focus. The phone is also expected to come with a biometric sensor. It will have three capacitive keys below the display, as usual. Most specifications of the device were not listed but it will feature a USB Type-C connector, front-facing flash and an optional “Smart Flip Cover”.
Now, if we move our attention towards the Zenfone 3 Deluxe, it will have a similar metal design but will come with a physical home button below the display along with two capacitive buttons on both sides. A fingerprint sensor has been mostly baked into that physical home button. Hence, the normal Zenfone 3 is likely to miss out on a fingerprint sensor, which is very disappointing, since fingerprint sensors are available on most budget smartphones nowadays.
The ASUS Zenfone 3 will be available in Silver, Gold and Black color variants. The upcoming flagship device from ASUS should be announced at Computex 2016, which will take place from May 31 – June 4.
