The Asus ZenFone 4 will be receiving an upgraded version very soon, and the rumors are that its successor may be set for introduction during the MWC 2017 event, around three weeks from today. The benchmarking site GFXBench today listed an unknown Asus device that might be the ZenFone 4 2017 edition. The old 4-inch ZenFone 4 will be growing up as the new upgraded of the handset will be having a large 5.7-inch body and some top-notch gaming phone-like features, such as Quad-HD touchscreen display, Snapdragon 820 with 6GB of RAM, and a 23MP camera (probably the Sony IMX318) for recording 4K videos.
Just a month ago, Asus released the 5.5-inch ZenFone 3 Zoom and the ZenFone AR, a 5.7-inch QHD phone with the support of virtual reality and augmented reality. The first of its kind. Besides the two hi-end handsets, Asus released a third entry-level handset called Pegasus 3S. It seems like Asus fans cannot get enough of Asus, and for that, the company will bring another hi-end 5.7-inch powerhouse very soon to please their needs.
The Asus ZenFone 4 will be having a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and sport a 23MP main camera on the rear (Sony IMX318) that shoots photos at a maximum resolution of 5488 x 4096 pixels and records 4K videos at 2160 pixels. The featured selfie camera is set to be an 8MP with maximum video recording resolution of 3264 x 1836 pixels.
What gives a power lift to the ZenFone 4 is the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset which in this case will be backed by 6GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable internal memory, and topped by Android 7.0 Nougat version of the operating system. GFXBench lists the NFC as part of its features and by that we can assume that the hi-end connectivity supports will be included.
Sadly, no render exposing the ZenFone 4 has been exposed by far. Stay tuned for more news regarding the upcoming Asus ZenFone 4 2017 Edition.
