Asus has sent out invites for an event in the Philippines. The event will be held on August 19, and the company is set to unveil the Asus ZenFone 4. Its promo images confirm that the ZenFone 4 will sport a dual camera setup.
The Taiwanese electronics giant has already launched one variant of the ZenFone 4 - the Asus ZenFone 4 Max in Russia. This smartphone also has a dual camera setup at the rear, so it could just be that Asus is launching the same variant in Philippines now, or it could launch more variants of it. Whatever the case may be, all details will be unveiled at the event in Pasay, Philippines. The event invite and promo images were shared by Android Police.
The predecessors, Asus ZenFone 3, Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe, and Asus ZenFone 3 Ultra were all launched last year in May at the Zenvolution event in Taipei. This year, the ZenFone 4 variants have been leaked on various occasions, but they haven't seen an official unveil yet, even as the third quarter is almost halfway done. As we mentioned, only the ZenFone 4 Max has been unveiled, and that too only in Russia.
The ZenFone 4 family is tipped to be divided into at least five variants - Asus ZenFone 4 (ZE554KL), Asus ZenFone 4 Max (ZC554KL), Asus ZenFone 4 Pro (Z01GD), Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie (Z01M), and Asus ZenFone 4V (V520KL/A006. The Asus ZenFone 4 original model may come in two RAM/ storage variants. The Asus ZenFone 4 Pro model is a new variant in the mix, and it could be the most premium of them all. The Asus ZenFone 4V was previously thought to be a Verizon exclusive variant.
As for the Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie, it is listed with model name Z01M and it is expected to run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, sport a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display, and be powered by a Snapdragon 625 SoC with Adreno 506 GPU, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. The selfie-focused smartphone will sport a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 12-megapixel front sensor - both with 4K support.
The Asus ZenFone 4 series smartphones were first slated to release in July, but that didn't happen. Now, with the date confirmed for August 19, let's see how many variants see the light of the day in the Philippines.
