New Asus Zenfone 7 leak shows dual hole punch LCD display and triple camera setup


A new leak has given us our first look at the Asus Zenfone 7. The Zenfone 7 appears to feature a triple camera setup housed within a square module and dual-selfie camera with punch hole style.

For the first time, there's finally a leak on what appears to be the Zenfone 7. The leak itself is appears to be a low-res render of the phone. It shows the phone with a triple camera setup, in a rectangular module. The Zenfone 6 only had two cameras: a main shooter and an ultra-wide-angle lens, but the presence of a third shooter on these renders points towards a telephoto lens on the Zenfone 7. The front of the device has what appears to a dual punch-hole design at the top left corner. That means that Asus has given up on the swiveling camera mechanism it used on the Zenfone 6.

Qualcomm's already listed smartphones featuring the Snapdragon 865 SoC one of them is ZenFone 7. The ZenFone 7 is believed to come as the successor to the Asus 6Z that was launched last year with a motorised rotating camera.

At the bottom of the camera module is a capacitive fingerprint reader. That's usually a good clue as to the display type used these days, since most AMOLED phones feature in-display sensors. Asus cuts costs on these phones by using LCDs instead of AMOLEDs, and it looks like that will continue on the Zenfone 7.

Here’s the list of Asus smartphones that will get the update:

  • Zenfone 4 Max (ZC554KL)
  • Zenfone 4 Selfie (ZD553KL)
  • Zenfone 4 Max (ZC520KL)
  • Zenfone Live (ZB553KL)
  • Zenfone 4 Max (ZB520KL)

Of note is the Zenfone 5Z, which already received its Android 9 Pie update at the end of January. The Zenfone Max Pro M2 also received the update, albeit in beta form and with the inability to downgrade to Android Oreo if something goes wrong.

Asus didn’t say exactly when the devices would get Android 9 Pie, only that they would get the update this year. Asus also didn’t state if it’s prioritizing some handsets over others. We’ll have to wait and see how Asus’ upgrade plan unfolds as we go further into 2019.
