A mysterious Asus device gets a certification from TENAA. The smartphone packs premium specs and it will likely be unveiled in the company's upcoming Zennovation event.
Asus Z01HDA Phone Receives TENAA Certification
TENAA website surprisingly posts a new, not-yet-named Asus device sporting Snapdragon 625 chip with three options of RAM: 2GB, 3GB and 4GB. The phone is codenamed Z01HDA - which according to GizChina - indicates a Zenfone 3 Zoom camera.
Asus Z01HDA Phone is Zenfone 3 Successor?
One thing attractive about the Asus device is the dual-lens camera module. A 12MP and 13 MP camera for its rear shooter appears in the listing, along with 13 MP of selfie shooter, Bluetooth certification and three choices of ROM: 16GB, 32GB and 64 GB. The said smartphone will likely run Android Marshmallow instead of Nougat, GSM Arena has learned.
TENAA listing mentions a 5.5-inch display with 4,850 mAh battery capacity. The metal smartphone will be available in Luxury Gold, Navy Black and Crafts Silver.
Asus Z01HDA Phone Release Date
TENAA is a Chinese telecomm certification center, similar to the US' FCC. If a device gets green light, that means the release date is imminent.
Many speculations suggest that the alleged Zenfone 3 successor will be unveiled in Asus Zennovation event that will take place on Jan. 4, 2017 in Las Vegas.
There is no detail on the pricing but it seems that Asus has been going mad with the phones' price tag lately. A device with such specs might go above $300 the least but if Asus will make it an affordable smartphone, it should be able to compete with Mi 5 or Galaxy J7 Prime.
