It is important to note that the upcoming Asus ZenFone 7 series is one of the least leaked phones this year 2020 as far as the features are concerned. But, we have already seen the devices going through multiple certifications.
Going by the latest market reports, the ZenFone 7 Series will get a bigger 6.7-inch screen than the predecessor which sports a 6.4-inch screen. The upcoming ZenFone 7 is expected to retain the rotatable folding camera similar to what we had seen on the predecessor – Asus 6Z.

There are also several speculations claiming that the handset will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC instead of the new Snapdragon 865+, which powers the ROG Phone 3. It won’t be wrong to say that the new flagship chipset does come with higher costs. Thus, several phone makers have employed Snapdragon 865 SoC on their flagship phones. One such example of this is Xiaomi’s Mi 10 Ultra.
Talking about the other specifications, the handset is likely to pack a massive 5000 mAh battery with 30W fast charging support via USB Type-C. This was revealed through certification by the TÜV Rheinland. Moreover, the NCC listing also revealed that the phone will be offered with WiFi 6, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, along with internal storage of up to 512 GB. The company will also be offering the phone with fewer storage configurations. As of now, there are no details available about the phone including the design. We expect some details coming out ahead of the official unveiling.
