Asus, the Taiwanese multinational has set the date for the launch event of the Zenfone 4 which will be held in the Philippines on August 19. The Zenfone 4 is the successor of the Zenfone 3 – the third generation in the Zenfone series.
The Zenfone 3 line-up saw a couple of additions to the first four devices that were launched, Asus ZenFone 3, ZenFone 3 Ultra, ZenFone 3 Deluxe and ZenFone 3 Laser. Among the other additions that came along in the third generation were the Zenfone 3 Max, Zenfone 3 Zoom, Zenfone Live, Zenfone Go and the Zenfone AR.
In the Zenfone 4 series, only one device has been launched till date, the Asus Zenfone 4 Max. However, this smartphone has only seen a launch in Russia and not received a global launch yet. The Zenfone 4 is expected to feature flagship specifications and as the press images point out – a dual camera setup.
The Zenfone 4 is tipped to have at least 5 variants at the time of launch, namely – Asus ZenFone 4, Asus ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone 4 Max, Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie and Asus ZenFone 4V. The Zenfone 4 Pro is the new addition from the previous generation and might be the leader of the lot in terms of specifications. All devices are expected to run the latest version of Android Nougat and will likely see an upgrade to Android O.
It was earlier speculated for the Zenfone 4 to be unveiled in mid-July, however, the launch has seen a delay and the final date is now out. With the reputation the Zenfone 3 has managed to build in the last year, the Zenfone 4 has a tall order to beat and we are sure Asus wouldn’t disappoint.
