A new smartphone has been certified by TENNA in China that is produced by Asus. The smartphone carries model number Z00EDB and scuttlebutt suggests that the smartphone might be the Asus ZenFone 3. The ZenFone 3 is thought to be a less expensive handset compared to the ZenFone 2 that launched in the US this month.
It’s hard to tell from the small images TENAA offered of the device, but the backside of the smartphone case does resemble the ZenFone 2 we have in the US. However, the TENAA photos appear to show a device with a flat back rather than the curved metal back on the ZenFone 2.
Hardware tipped to be inside the ZenFone 3 includes a 5-inch screen protected by Gorilla Glass 3 with a resolution of 720 x 1280. A 64-bit SoC with a quad-core CPU operating at 1.2GHz paired with a Mali GPU is under the hood. The smartphone has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of integrated storage.
Storage can be expanded via microSD cards. The rear camera is an 8MP unit with HDR mode and on the front users get a 5MP camera. The operating system is Android 5.0 right out of the box; WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 are integrated along with dual SIM capability.
