Asus has been teasing its ZenFone 3 series of smartphones which is set to launch on May 30. However, ahead of the launch, the alleged Asus ZenFone 3 is said to have passed the AnTuTu benchmark test with a Snapdragon 820 SoC on board.
The benchmark results shown in an image posted on Weibo reveal further details about the handset’s innards. The Asus handset is listed with model name Z016D, believed to be ZenFone 3, and packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. The Asus Z016D model will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, as per the benchmark result. It packs a full-HD display and sports a 23-megapixel rear camera alongside an 8-megapixel front camera. As with other benchmark related leaks, the complete specifications of the Asus ZenFone 3 are not available as of now. The Weibo user claims that the alleged ZenFone 3 scored 135,000 on AnTuTu benchmark listing.
In its recent teaser, Asus confirmed its ‘Zenvolution’ press event at the side-lines of Computex 2016 on May 31 will have three ZenFone 3 series smartphones. The Taiwanese company is widely expected to reveal the Asus ZenFone 3, ZenFone 3 Deluxe, and ZenFone 3 Max handsets.
The 34-second YouTube video shared by Asus showed three handsets – first with ‘Clarity’ tagline, second with ‘Desire’ tagline, and the third with ‘Unlimited.’ The official video tipped some of the features of the upcoming ZenFone 3 series including a fingerprint scanner at the back, metal frames, and large screen size. The YouTube video titled ‘Zenvolution is coming’ had a tagline that said, “Get ready to redefine clarity, desirable detail, and unlimited viewing area.” We can expect Asus to share more teasers as the official launch approaches.
