Asus Zenfone 7 series will go official on August 26 in Taiwan. It is expected that the series will include two device – Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro. Earlier, we reported that Zenfone 7 will feature Snapdragon 865 while its Pro variant Zenfone 7 Pro will pack Snapdragon 865+. Now we have more evidence that we will see both Snapdragon 865 and 865+ version.
Today, we have spotted Asus Zenfone 7’s spare parts on a retailer website where motherboard and battery are listed. The motherboard listing with model ZS670KS confirms Asus Zenfone 7 will have both Snapdragon 865 and 865+ version(probably for Pro variant). Apart from confirming SoC, listing shows 6GB+128GB memory configuration with Snapdragon 865 and 8GB+256GB memory configuration with Snapdragon 865+. It should be noted that the price tag shown on the images are for spare parts only.
Asus Zenfone 7’s battery has also listed with model C11P1904. We cross-checked the model with Danish UL (Demko) certification database and found out Asus Zenfone 7’s typical battery capacity as 5000mAh.
Earlier, Asus Zenfone 7 was spotted on National Communications Commission (NCC) of Taiwan which reveals some of its key details. Now, NCC has attached a new document where it was mentioned NR/LTE/WCDMA/GSM standard. It can be seen that the NR standard is also specified for the 5G (fifth generation) mobile network. So, Asus Zenfone 7 series will come with 5G support. Asus will use a separate 5G modem with Snapdragon 865/865+ to enable 5G. However, it will be interesting to see whether Indian Zenfone 7 lineup units will come with support for 5G or not. There is also a possibility that the company may use a 4G modem like iQOO 3 4G with Snapdragon 865/865+ for the Indian market.
