The highly anticipated Asus ZenFone 3 just surfaced on the AnTuTu benchmark database, revealing some powerful specs in tow.
Asus has a big "Zenvolution" event set on May 30, where it will unveil its latest Zen devices. When it comes to the ZenFone 3 series, Asus is expected to introduce a ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 3 Deluxe, both of which leaked in unofficial press renders back in April. A ZenFone 3 Max should be in the mix as well.
The new AnTuTu benchmark listing now reveals several details for the purported ZenFone 3 with model number Z016D.
Based on this listing that surfaced on Weibo, the Asus ZenFone 3 will pack a powerful Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood, coupled with Adreno 530 graphics and 4 GB of RAM.
Other specs include a full HD display (previously rumored to be 5.5 inches), a 23-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel selfie cam, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board out of the box. The handset scored 135,000 on AnTuTu.
The listing doesn't reveal the full specifications for the Asus ZenFone 3, but the specs it does mention hint at a powerful device all around. This means that the handset will compete in the high-end segment of the smartphone market, just as expected.
A previous report also hinted at USB Type-C for the ZenFone 3 series, which sounds plausible considering that an increasing number of flagships are now sporting the new USB port. This detail, however, remains unconfirmed at this point.
In a recent teaser posted on YouTube, Asus shows three handsets with the taglines "Clarity," "Desire" and "Unlimited." The video offers clear hints at some of the features set to grace the ZenFone 3 series, including sleek metal frames, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and plenty of screen real estate.
"Get ready to redefine clarity, desirable detail, and unlimited viewing area," touts the tagline of the teaser. Hit play on the video embedded below to see the teaser for yourself, and get ready for an exciting Zenvolution in less than a fortnight. As always, we'll keep you in the loop as soon as more details hit the surface, so stay tuned.
