After the success of ZenFone 6, Asus has launched its new mobile phone ZenFone 7 pro which will be high in specs and with a flip camera.
It will be not fair if we compare ZenFone 7 pro with the ZenFone 6. Asus has studied the logic and technique of other mobile phone brands so they have split its flagship devices in basic and pro versions. If we compare the basic model with pro one the ZenFone 7 only loses a slightly fastest chipset, a bit of ram and storage, and also the OIS in its cameras. In our opinion, users can go for a cheaper model to save some bucks but the premium option is also available who wants.
Design & Display
The Flagship ZenFone 7 Pro comes with a seamless AMOLED 6.67 inch display with no notch or punch hole in the display. ZenFone 7 Pro will work on a 90Hz refresh rate. The rear camera will flip up 180 degrees to face forward. The fingerprint sensor is given in the lock button on the right side.
The few major changes users will see that the fingerprint has been from the back of the mobile to its oversized lock button. The phone is thick but the back tapers down the side to a thinner edge will make it easier to handle but this build design will make it tough to grasp when the phone is laying flat and it doesn’t feel secure to hold as the fingers of the user may curve around the matte metal sides to slip on the backs glossy finish.
ZenFone 7 Pro weighs 230g and that makes it heavier than the iPhone 11 Pro Max and most other flagship phones. Which is in our guess the camera flip machine and 5,000 mAh battery and thermal protections make up some bulk. The phone doesn’t look weighty which is because of its slender edges and the sleek design and 6.67 inches of AMOLED display. The display quality is bright and crisp but it doesn’t reach the sharpness quality of Samsung Galaxy S20 line which is WQHD+.
The phones refresh rate of 90Hz results in a pleasantly smooth scrolling experience between apps or using social media. It’s a good step up from the industry standard of 60Hz and it will be a good gaming device for gamers who love to play mobile games like PUBG Mobile and other games that support higher refresh rates.
ZenFone 7 Pro has Snapdragon 865Plus 5G Chipset, new battery software is installed in the phone like slow charging and percentage caps to keep from depleting total capacity over time.
The trend of the flip-up camera has also been adopted in ZenFone 7 Pro and it takes up an even bigger chunk of the top section of the back. The phone doesn’t feel so large or weighty, the user will feel the spinning of gears and mechanism when the user pops it by switching to front-facing camera mode also it will not affect on user grip. The spinning of the camera is much quieter as compared to its previous model ZenFone 6 with an audible whirring beep.
Users can set camera positions between the rear and forward-facing for interesting angles.
- The first camera is 64MP main camera
- The second one is a 12MP ultrawide camera
- The third one is 3x optical telephoto camera
Let us tell our readers that we are not discounting the novelty of being able to take selfies with the ultrawide lens or even with the telephoto camera.
From the main camera, users can record video up to 8K at 30fps, while in ultrawide camera users can shoot up to 4K at 60fps. In-camera users will get subject following motion tracking, auto panning panorama modes.
RAM & ROM
ZenFone 7 Pro includes advanced LPDDR5 RAM and the latest version of Asus gaming software. The phone comes with 8GB of RAM & 256GB of internal storage.
ZenFone 7 Pro has a large 5,000mAh of battery, which is in our opinion users will not find easily in other brands with these mobile phone specs. The user will get a 30W fast charger in the box which quite impressive.
The users can choose between two colors Aurora Black & Pastel White.
The ZenFone 7 Pro is officially released on August 26, 2020, in Taiwan and it will be available in Europe on September 1.
