Ricci Rox,

Asus has been on a roll, with the company announcing the launch of its Zenfone 4 series in Europe last month. With that out of the way, the Taiwanese giants can focus on the development of new devices, with information pointing towards a new mid-range phone.

The device, titled "Asus X018DC" was spotted on TENAA a few days ago, with specs pointing towards a lower mid-range offering. TENAA listings are not conclusive but the entry indicates a 5.7-inch display, with an accompanying 720x1440 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio, dual rear cameras, rear fingerprint sensor, and a 4030 mAh battery.

The "X018DC" is powered by a yet unnamed octa-core SoC that's clocked at 1.5 GHz. This SoC looks to be a match for either Qualcomm's Snapdragon 617 or MediaTek's MT6750T, both of which are mid-range chipsets, although the MediaTek one is the more recent and powerful of either

The device will come in two options: 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, and 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Pricing details are unknown but we'll be sure to keep you updated.
