Another leak suggests that the Asus ZenFone 7 may have a triple camera setup at the back with a 64-megapixel primary sensor, a 12-megapixel secondary sensor, and an 8-megapixel tertiary sensor. This should be integrated in the same flip mechanism as its predecessor Asus ZenFone 6. There is no clarity whether the Pro model will see the same camera setup.
