The ASUS ZenFone 7 will pack in a powerful set of specs. ASUS confirmed yesterday that the device will become official on August 26. Well, the phone now surfaced on Geekbench, revealing some of its specs.
The phone appeared on Geekbench with the ‘ASUS_I002D’ model number. The listing doesn’t mention the ZenFone 7 specifically, but this is almost certainly ASUS’ upcoming smartphone.
The ASUS ZenFone 7 will offer powerful specs, as expected
The company doesn’t really release that many phones a year, and it all fits. In any case, Geekbench claims that the phone will include the Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC. That is the most powerful processor Qualcomm has to offer.
In addition to the Snapdragon 865 Plus, the device will also sport 8GB of RAM. It is possible that more than one variant of the phone will become available, though. So, it’s possible we’ll see a 12GB RAM model as well.
We’re still not sure how many ZenFone 7 devices will ASUS announce. Last year, only the ZenFone 6 arrived, but in previous years, ASUS tended to release several completely different models.
The ASUS ZenFone 7 managed to score 966 points in the single-core benchmark on Geekbench. In the multi-core test, it managed to rack up 3,282 points.
The phone was also spotted at two additional certifications recently, NCC and TUV Rheinland, Those certifications confirmed that the phone will ship with Wi-Fi 6 support, Bluetooth 5.0, and that it will have a large battery.
A 5,000mAh battery will also be a part of the package
The ASUS ZenFone 7 will include a 5,000mAh battery, it seems. We still do not know how large will its display be, though. An OLED panel will almost certainly be a part of the package, which was not the case on the ZenFone 6.
It’ll be interesting to see if this phone will offer a rotating camera setup like its predecessor. The ZenFone 6 had a rather interesting, motorized camera setup which acted as both the phone’s front and rear camera setup.
That camera module did work really well, and it was even able to take landscape shots on its own. It also allowed ASUS to trim down the bezels without including a pop-up camera, notch, or a display camera hole.
The ASUS ZenFone 7 design still did not surface, so we’re not sure what to expect. It’s possible that its design will appear in the coming days, though. The closer the launch date, the bigger the chance we’ll see the device ahead of time.
