ASUS ZenFone 4 cleared by Wi-Fi Alliance ahead of Thursday’s release

Asus ZenFone 4

Last week, ASUS accidentally published some details of the upcoming ZenFone 4 family and not so long ago, two of the expected phones appeared on GFXBench.

The benchmarked phones were the high-end ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro and the midrange ASUS ZenFone 4. From the listings, we got just about every detail we need to know about the upcoming ZenFone family and today, the Wi-Fi Alliance has added more weight to the looming launch of the phones by clearing the midrange ZenFone 4.

The WFA has just certified a phone with model number ASUS_Z01KD and from previous leaks, we can confirm that this is indeed the upcoming ZenFone 4 model. The listing doesn’t offer much detail, but it can confirm that this phone will come with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, something that the previous listing on GFXBench agrees with.

According to the benchmarks, this phone will come with a 5.5-inch 1080p display screen, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor clocked at 2.2GHz and mated with an Adreno 512 GPU alongside 6GB of RAM. In terms of storage, this ASUS ZenFone 4 handset will pack an impressive 64GB module, which should also get a microSD card slot for expanding.

For the cameras, the phone will feature a 12MP shooter on the back with support for 4K video recording, LED flash and autofocus, but there will be no HDR. The front shooter is not bad either, coming in with an 8MP lens that can record up to 2K videos.

ASUS ZenFone 4 will also include features such as NFC, GPS, proximity and accelerometer sensors, among others. The company is expected to unveil the phone on Thursday this week alongside the likes of ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone 4 Selfie and ZenFone 4 Max.
