Asus Zenfone: new smartphone will be presented at CES 2016

It seems that Asus have found a gold mine. The company continues to produce smartphones of Zenfone line , many of which, as you probably know, are made on the basis of processors Intel.

Soon we will see another representative of this family. The new smartphone Asus Zenfone will receive a six-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 618. Currently smartphone is known as Asus Z012D. Just a few days ago, the mobile device has been tested in GFXBench.

We know that site GFXBench traditionally published all the technical characteristics of the tested devices in benchmark. So we were able to learn the basic technical characteristics of the new representative of the Zenfone line before the official announcement.

As you can see in the screenshot below, Asus Z012D got 5.5-inch screen with resolution Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), six-core ARM Cortex-A72 processor with graphics accelerator Qualcomm Adreno 510, which belongs to Snapdragon 618, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal flash memory.

Besides, new smartphone Asus Zenfone will receive a standard set of wireless Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth and GPS modules (but without NFC), two cameras, and the latest version of the operating system Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Price of the model Asus Z012D is unknown, but we can make personal assumptions which in any case are not fact. As we know Asus has launched the first smartphone with 4GB of RAM and its price was below $299. Thus, we can conclude that the new smartphone Asus Z012D will belong to the middle category of devices or even lower price category.

At the moment, we do not have pictures or any information about the design. We cannot even argue that the smartphone really be released. Nevertheless, we believe that Asus is preparing for the upcoming CES 2016, which will take place in January. We must remind you that company introduced Zenfone 2 at CES 2015 a year ago.
