The Asus Zenfone 7 series finally has a launch date: August 26. Asus is expected to unveil two phones on that date—the Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro—with the phones slated to take on the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, while being a tad more affordable, hopefully.

After months of waiting and a slow trickle of news, the Asus Zenfone 7 is finally at hand. The Asus flagship was initially teased to launch alongside the ROG Phone 3 last month, but that turned out to not be possible. No worries, though, as a launch date has now been revealed.

According to new information, the Asus Zenfone 7 series will be launched on August 26 in Taiwan. The shared teaser image does look official, and the source, @yabhishekhd, has a pretty solid track record. We'd be surprised if this turned out false. The fact that it's the "Zenfone 7 series" that's stated corroborates reports claiming Asus would launch two Zenfone 7 phones: the Zenfone 7 and a more expensive, feature-packed Zenfone 7 Pro. 

Not much is known about the phones but previous information indicates a Snapdragon 865, up to 8 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of storage, a 5000 mAh battery, and 30 W charging for the Zenfone 7. The Zenfone 7 Pro is expected to be powered by the new Snapdragon 865 Plus, and could have max RAM and storage of 16 GB and 512 GB respectively. 

We'll keep you updated on this.
