While the Asus Zenfone 7 will be the affordable flagship for the people, Asus is apparently set to launch a Zenfone 7 Pro alongside it, which will offer more features, starting with the more powerful Snapdragon 865 Plus versus the Snapdragon 865 on the regular Zenfone 7.

The Asus Zenfone 7 is on the way, and more information has now surfaced lending credence to rumors that it will come with a more expensive, feature-packed Zenfone 7 Pro model. 

About a week ago, word on the grapevine claimed Asus would release a Zenfone 7 and a Zenfone 7 Pro. A new report by DealnTech has revealed the presence of a Zenfone 7 Pro in benchmark code. Supposedly, the benchmark shows traces of the Zenfone 7 Pro, as there appear to be two sets of core clusters, with the first being clocked at 2.84 GHz and the other at 3.1 GHz. The other details are identical.

That may sound familiar to some, as the Snapdragon 865 features a Prime Core clocked at 2.84 GHz, while the newer Snapdragon 865 Plus sees that same core boosted up to 3.1 GHz. All evidence points towards the existence of two phones—one with a Snapdragon 865, and the other with a Snapdragon 865 Plus.

It's not improbable that the Zenfone 7 Pro is the device in question with the new Snapdragon 865 Plus. After all, Asus' other phone, the ROG Phone 3, will be the first phone to launch with that chipset.

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.
