The Asus ZenFone 7 is slated to launch soon - as is its nouveau Pro variant. A device that could be one of these two has been spotted on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group's (SIG) website. This suggests that the new series could indeed debut very soon.

Asus is expected to update the top-end of its ZenFone mobile device series soon. It is said to include a Pro variant of this flagship for the first time in 2020. This device may run on the Snapdragon 865+, whereas the vanilla 7 may get the slightly older Snapdragon 865 SoC instead.

Nevertheless, they are both rumored to retain the innovative flip-up camera module from the 6, although it may contain more up-to-date lenses this time around. The Bluetooth SIG has just certified a phone from the OEM that may turn out to be one of these premium ZenFones.

This documentation mentions the product name ASUS_I002D, which is not a million miles away from that of the series' gamer-focused ROG Phone 3 counterpart. There are also 2 model numbers, which hints at different variants or SKUs in this new device.

These identifiers - ZS670KS and ZS671KS - are also reminiscent of that of the ZenFone 6 (ZS630KL) in some markets. Furthermore, they are now approved to use the latest in Bluetooth standards: 5.2. Therefore, these are good indications that the ZenFone 7, if not the 7 Pro, is on its way to launch.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
