Update: The Zenfone 7's retail box has now leaked, revealing the major specifications of the phone. The Zenfone 7 will be powered by a Snapdragon 865 and will feature 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, and a 6.67-inch FHD+ display. The third camera is an 8 MP sensor, so likely a telephoto camera and not a depth or macro lens as initially tipped.

------------------------------------------------

The Asus Zenfone 7 will be officially unveiled on August 26. That's just four days away at the point, and there's been a steady influx of information pertaining to the phone over the past week. The latest leak, however, shows the Zenfone 7 in the flesh for the first time.

As shared on Twitter, the Zenfone 7 can be seen, alongside its box. The design is, well, pretty similar to what we saw on last year's Zenfone 6. That's not a bad thing, though. The swiveling camera module also makes a return on the Zenfone 7.  While the Zenfone 6 had just two cameras, the Zenfone 7 appears has three. Word on the grapevine claims the new lens is just a ToF sensor now, though it's possible that the Zenfone 7 Pro will incorporate a telephoto lens.  

Gone is the rear fingerprint reader as it appeared on the Zenfone 6. Since the phone is expected to have an LCD—which currently doesn't accommodate in-display fingerprint readers—it's logical to assume that it's been moved to the side of the phone, just like an earlier leak claimed.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
