Leaked product shots show a fingerprint sensor, metal chassis, multiple color options, and a seemingly Samsung-inspired design.

The current Zenfone 2 was reasonably priced at launch considering the hardware and specifications. The Taiwanese manufacturer has expanded upon the Zenfone 2 to include the Zenfone 2 Deluxe, Zenfone 2 Laser, and others. Now, sources close to the website Red Dot 21 are claiming that the true Zenfone 2 successor will make use of an aluminum frame, 2.5D glass on both the front and back, USB Type-C, fingerprint reader, laser auto-focus, and LED Flash on both sides of the phone.

The leaked images purportedly show the final design of the smartphone where the fingerprint scanner and camera can be seen. Color choices include Gold, White, and Black while the supposed Zenfone 3 Deluxe edition will utilize a slightly different metal unibody. A noteworthy mention is that the design of the new Asus phone is looking very similar to the current Samsung Galaxy S series including the oval Home button near the bottom.

While the Zenfone 3 is still under wraps, Asus has confirmed that it will indeed unveil more details on the next Zenfone at Computex 2016 this coming May. A possible Zenfone 3 was spotted at GFXBench back in January with Snapdragon 600 class processors.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
