Next gen ASUS ZenFone outed in official documentation, to be unveiled at CES 2015?


ASUS ZenFone Z007 Bluetooth SIG

ASUS is no stranger to unveiling new devices at CES and it looks like this year will be no different. Earlier today, the Taiwanese manufacturer was teasing a new smartphone on both YouTube and their Facebook page, but wouldn’t provide any details until the phone’s big reveal at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.

Now, perhaps it’s just a coincidence, but a mysterious new ASUS device recently made its way through the Bluetooth SIG and according to the documentation, appears to be ASUS’ followup to their previous ZenFone.

Now whether or not this phone and the one being teased are the same remains to be seen, but the sub par specs leave a whole lot to be desired. Here’s the specs ASUS provided in their paperwork (something OEMs don’t typically submit to the SIG):

  • 4.5”480 x 854 display
  • Intel dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • Dual Camera (.3MP front / 5MP rear)
  • 2,100mAh battery
  • Android 4.4.2 with ASUS ZenUI

“These great hardware specifications, combined with ASUS’ latest ZenUI and it’s wide of ASUS exclusive services and utilities, will provide our customers with the best user experience possible.”

Ummmm… what?

  1. Pass.

  2. not even a third world country will want this phone. how is that screen HD. so many “wtf’s” going on here. Asus doesnt pull these stunts. whats going on!?!?

    1. That’s so rude. Some countries don’t have the same fortune as first-world countries. Phones like this are great for helping lower income people access a world of knowledge. I’m happy that these options are available!

      1. Ahh yes, the social warrior of the thread comes along to shame a poster for their honest assessment of a weak and lame device. Ugh.

        1. I’m not a social warrior at all, I’m just not an a**hole

  3. That can’t possibly be correct.

    1. Kids phone maybe.

  4. 480 by 854? 1 GB of RAM? 2,100 mah? Does not compute

  5. 2011 called and they want their phone specs back…

  6. These specs are very similar to the moto e, even slightly better depending on how that Intel processor is, if it’s priced at $100-130 like the moto e, expect it to sell like gangbusters in India and Brazil. Also I imagine the elderly and people who need a cheap phone to hold them over till their next upgrade after breaking theirs will buy them. Cheaper than insurance and not a refurb

  7. seems like any other smartphone out in the market now…what with the rising no. of chinese handsets …eh?
