Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro
Asus recently started sending out press invites for the launch event of its ZenFone 4 smartphone on August 17 but the company’s online store has already listed two models of the handset on its website. Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro ZD552KL and Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie ZD553KL have now been listed on the online retail store of the Asus France site and all the specifications as well as images of the smartphone are now available for customers to see. There’s no information of when the products will go on sale however.
While the Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro has been priced by the company at EUR 399.99 (roughly Rs. 30,050), the ZenFone 4 Selfie will be available for purchase at EUR 299.99 (roughly Rs. 22,550). As the names suggest, both smartphones are focused on selfies and come with dual cameras at front. The Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro bears a front-facing dual camera setup with a 24-megapixel sensor and another 5-megapixel sensor. The ZenFone 4 Selfie on the other hand comes with a 20-megapixel sensor and another 8-megapixel sensor at the front of the handset. At rear end, both new Asus smartphones feature 16-megapixel primary cameras.

Moving to the other specifications, both the dual-SIM (Nano+Micro) Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro and the ZenFone 4 Selfie run Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and sport 5.5-inch displays but the former packs a full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Super AMOLED display while the latter settles for an HD (720×1280 pixels) LCD display. The ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clocked at 2.0GHz coupled with 4GB of RAM. The regular ZenFone 4 Selfie is slightly underpowered and is kept running by a Snapdragon 430 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM.

Back in November China’s TENAA certified the upcoming LeEco Le X850 for sale in the country, though it still hasn’t launched. And now it looks like the same handset (or a slightly different version of it) was put through the paces of GFXBench, which as usual has resulted in a pretty complete listing of its specs on the benchmark’s website.
The phone’s model number is said to be X85x, and the second “x” could obviously stand for “0”. Then again, GFXBench also calls it X10 as if that may be its name, so it’s unclear what’s going on here. Finally note that there are some small differences between the specs outed by TENAA for the X850 and what GFXBench lists for the X10/X85x.
The Chinese regulatory authority spoke of a device with a 5.7-inch QHD screen, Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, dual 13 MP rear cameras, and a 16 MP selfie snapper.
GFXBench says it has a 5.5-inch QHD display, the Snapdragon 820 at the helm, 4 or 6GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of storage, a 12 MP + 12 MP dual rear camera setup (with 4K video recording), and surprisingly a 16 MP + 16 MP dual front camera arrangement too. Four camera sensors on one device are apparently becoming mainstream this year.
There’s still no telling when the LeEco X850 / X10 / X85x will finally be outed, but hopefully that will happen soon. And with MWC practically right around the corner, it could be that LeEco is waiting for that particular setting for its grand unveiling.
The Vivo V5 Plus will launch on January 23 at a special event in India, but until now details regarding its specs have been scarce.
Thanks to a new leak, now we have more pieces of the V5 Plus puzzle. The phone will sport dual front-facing cameras: a 20MP + 8MP combo. It will be accompanied by Vivo’s “Moonlight Glow” flash. The 20MP camera would utilize the Sony IMX376 sensor with f/2.0 aperture.
Below the selfie camera setup, there’s a 5.5″ display of 1080p resolution. Under the hood, there’s a Snapdragon 652 chipset packing a 1.8GHz octa-core CPU and 4GB of RAM. Internal storage is 64GB.
The hardware draws power from a 3,300mAh battery with Quick Charge support.
Expect more information on January 23 following the phone’s official launch.
A new Meizu smartphone has been spotted on benchmarking website AnTuTu. The device, which the listing identifies as Meizu_m96, seems to be a flagship phone as it is powered by Samsung’s latest Exynos 8890 chipset and has 4GB RAM.
Other key specifications revealed by the AnTuTu listing include QHD display, 12MP rear and 5MP front camera, 32GB internal memory, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Reports say the handset in question could be the Meizu Pro 7 (although that’s less likely) or a variant of the Pro 6.
Some assembly instructions have allegedly leaked from one of the iPhone 7 manufacturing plants and they show a diagram of the upcoming Apple phone.
One thing seems odd – first image, D12 says “Strobe lens and LED.” I’m not sure what “strobe lens” refers to, but it says the same for the main camera on the back (second image, H12).
Alleged assembly instructions for the iPhone 7
It’s the “LED” part that’s interesting – does the iPhone 7 have a selfie camera flash? Looking atleaked photos, nothing seems like an LED on the front so perhaps D12 just refers to the screen (which iPhone 6s uses as a “flash”).
Leaked photo iPhone 7 shows no signs of an LED on the front
The rest is pretty much identical to the iPhone 6s and the 6 before it – the same design three years in a row, aside from a minor redesign of the antenna lines and the amputation of the headphone jack.
We have been hearing a lot about Xiaomi’s device roadmap lately and can already say confidently that the Chinese OEM is planning a refresh to both its families with the budgetRedmi 4 and the high-end Mi Note 2, respectively. The former is expected to make its first appearance on stage on July 25 and the Note 2 could do the same, or perhaps wait for September 5, the debate is still open on that.
We already have a lot of credible info on the specs of the upcoming phablet, which may come in a flat screen and an edged variant. A new leaked photo brings further proof to this rumor, as it depicts the sizable double-curved front panel.
It is hard to judge scale without a clear reference point, but we do have some hints, like the cutout for the rounded home button, which will likely house a fingerprint reader as well. Also, there is the “Mi” logo in the top left corner. The latter has always been reserved for the company’s higher-end models and all the “Mi” devices up until now, with the notable exception of the Mi Max have it. This definitely rules out the possibility that we are looking at a Redmi part.
As for the rest of the specs of the Mi Note 2, its two tiers will allegedly not only differ by the shape of their panel, but also the resolution – 1080p in the base and QHD in the top tier. The former could come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, while the latter – 6GB plus 128GB and a Snapdragon 820 or even 821 and a 3600 mAh should be a giver for both. Price should go from $375 to $420 depending on configuration.
Even since Chinese manufacturer Vivo announced the original Xshot camera-centric handset back in 2014, there have been rumors about a successor. However, information had all but dried out until earlier this month, when the alleged device resurfaced, only this time without the Xshot moniker.
By all account, Vivo is working on a new device, dubbed the X7. This was reaffirmed by the latest company teaser for the smartphone. But even with no obvious reference to the Xshot family, the connection is still reaffirmed by the fact that the X7 will offer users a 16MP front-facing shooter.
This definitely shows major emphasis on camera experience, as is expected from an Xshot successor. As for the name change, that does raise some questions about the design language of the new phone and whether it will take after siblings like the Vivo X6.
According to the same sources, the Vivo X7 will come with a revolutionary new look and some even point to a concept device spotted in the Captain America Civil War movie. However, the latter did also feature the Vivo V3 on screen, so design is still a mystery at this point. Sadly, so are the rest of the specs on the device.
Barely hours ago we told you about a future Xiaomi phablet, which after an online poll the company decided to name Xiaomi Max. Meanwhile a couple of photos have surfaced, and they seem to be coming straight from the production line.
The shots depict the device’s front panel and it’s nothing short of colossal. If we’re still going to call it a phone, that is – as tablets go it’s tiny.
Alleged Xia0mi Max front panel
Compact side bezels, capacitive keys on the chin, earpiece and sensor array – the panel looks very much in line with Xiaomi’s design language. Unlike the current flagship Mi 5, though, there’s no hardware home button with a fingerprint reader. Fret not though, as the sources say that such a sensor will be found on the back like with the Redmi Note 3 and the Mi 4s.
As far as specs go, it’s only the Snapdragon 820 that seems to be settled on. Even the resolution of that huge display hasn’t been revealed.
Announcement time frame is still unknown obviously, but the source does mention the month of May.
