A new leak has given us our first look at the Asus Zenfone 7. The Zenfone 7 appears to feature a triple camera setup housed within a square module. The dual-selfie camera is present—in an Honor V20 Pro-esque punch-hole—and Asus appears to have opted for an LCD panel once more.

The Asus Zenfone 6 was a wildcard last year. It delivered flagship performance, an interesting camera design, and excellent software, all at incredibly competitive US$500 base price tag. Widely regarded as one of the best value flagship phones in the US market, the Zenfone 6 was a hit, and Asus will be hoping to build on that with the Zenfone 7.

For the first time, there's finally a leak on what appears to be the Zenfone 7. The leak itself is rather sketchy....as it appears to be a low-res render of the phone. It shows the phone with a triple camera setup, in a rectangular module. The Zenfone 6 only had two cameras: a main shooter and an ultra-wide-angle lens, but the presence of a third shooter on these renders points towards a telephoto lens on the Zenfone 7. 

At the bottom of the camera module is a capacitive fingerprint reader. That's usually a good clue as to the display type used these days, since most AMOLED phones feature in-display sensors. Asus cuts costs on these phones by using LCDs instead of AMOLEDs, and it looks like that will continue on the Zenfone 7.

The front of the device has what appears to a dual punch-hole design at the top left corner, much like the Honor V20 Pro. That means that Asus has given up on the swiveling camera mechanism it used on the Zenfone 6.

You'd do well to take all of this with a pinch of salt. The Zenfone 6 was released in May, and the Zenfone 7 will likely be the same—so it may be too early for concrete leaks on the phone. Typically, we get a few early false leaks on the Zenfone, and this may just one of those.
