ASUS ZenFone 7-series, with 90Hz display and flip camera, launched
Expanding its range of flagship smartphones, Taiwanese tech giant ASUS has launched the ZenFone 7 and ZenFone 7 Pro in its home country. Both the handsets come with a 90Hz AMOLED screen, 5G-ready flagship Snapdragon 800-series chipsets, a motorized triple-lens flip camera setup, and a 5,000mAh battery. They will go on sale in Taiwan in the coming days. Here's our roundup.
The ASUS ZenFone 7 and ZenFone 7 Pro feature a notch-less, bezel-less all-screen design achieved by adopting a rotating camera module that automatically flips to serve as a selfie snapper. Both the handsets sport a 6.67-inch Full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) AMOLED screen with an aspect ratio of 20:9, a 90Hz refresh rate, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for secure biometric authentication.
Both the ZenFone 7 and 7 Pro offer a triple rear camera setup comprising a 64MP (f/1.8) primary sensor, an 8MP (f/2.4, 3x optical zoom) telephoto lens, and a 12MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide camera. This camera setup automatically flips to serve as a front camera.
The ZenFone 7 draws power from a Snapdragon 865 chipset whereas the Pro model justifies its moniker by packing the latest Snapdragon 865+ chipset. The former gets 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage while the latter comes in a solo 8GB/256GB configuration. Under the hood, the duo runs Android 10-based ZenUI and packs a 5,000mAh battery with 30W fast-charging support.
The ZenFone 7 is priced at TWD 21,990 (approximately Rs. 56,000) for the 6GB/128GB variant and TWD 23,990 (around Rs. 60,000) for the 8GB/128GB model. On the other hand, the ZenFone 7 Pro costs TWD 27,990 (roughly Rs. 71,000) for the solo 8GB/256GB model. Both the handsets will go on sale in Taiwan soon, but there is no official word on their global launch.
