Asus is ready to rock the boat in 2017. The company is going to release new hardware during the CES 2017 in an event called ‘Zennovation’. Now a new Asus smartphone has cleared the Chinese telecommunication authority TENAA, and we are left wondering if the device will be launched at the CES 2017.
The handset is listed under the codename X00GD. It is powered by SoC with octa-core 1.5GHz processor, sports a 5.2-inch HD display, 4,850mAh battery and Android 7.0. Other impressive features include RAM options of 2/3/4GB with storage options of 16/32/64GB. As far as the camera is concerned, X00GD will sport 13 megapixels rear unit and 8 megapixels selfies camera. The phone weighs 169.5g and measures 149.5 × 73.7 × 8.85mm.
Some of the features that’ll make the handset extremely desirable when it hits the market is the fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button. Interested buyers will have options for luxury gold, rose gold, and black. As for now, we have no news of its price and availability.
The phone could come out at ‘Zennovation’ at CES 2017. The event’s invitation reads like this:
“Join us at our CES press conference on Wednesday, Jan 4 and experience our latest innovations that will expand your vision and stretch the imagination!!”
We are pretty sure Asus will be releasing their flagship devices in this event. In the pictures released by Asus for the event, one could see the presence of the Qualcomm logo. This has prompted speculation that the flagship devices could very well be sporting the latest Snapdragon 835 processor.
There a rumour that suggests the ‘Zennovation’ will see the launch of tablets, not smartphones. Some speculate that the device will be some unexpected and could take the world by storm. ‘Zennovation’ is scheduled for January 4, which isn’t too far. It is scheduled to take place between 11:30 AM PST and 01:00 AM in Indian Standard Time.
