An all-new Asus smartphone only identified as Asus Z01B, with Z01B representing the model number, has been sighted on popular benchmark website GFXBench.
This sighting is coming on the heels of the release of 3 range of smartphones by the Taiwanese company recently. The Asus Zenfone 3, Zenfone Ultra and Zenfone 3 Deluxe were recently outed and the Zenfone 3 Deluxe has been topping the chart as the most outstanding device from Asus this year.
The benchmark listing(pictured below) indicated that the device will be a notch lower than the mid-range Zenfone 3 in specs.
The ASUS Z01B comes with modest, mid-range hardware, which makes some observers believe that the device might be an upgrade for the ZenFone 2 Laser or the ZenFone Max, both of which are priced between US$130 to US$190 dollars in India depending on the variant chosen.
Taking a look at the spec sheet, the Asus Z01B features a 5.5-inch 1080p display panel and is powered by a Snapdragon processor which comes with an octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at a maximum of 1.4 GHz and an Adreno 505 GPU. While the specific SoC is not laid out in black and white, the combination of the Adreno 505 GPU and the 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 chip strongly suggests that we’re probably looking at the Snapdragon 430 or 435, although that’s a guess at this point in time.
Under the hood, the device packs 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. According to the GFXBench listing, the device will run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, and a camera apiece on the back and front will likely come with 12-megapixel at the rear and 7-megapixel sensors respectively.
The unnamed device will likely come with a pedometer (among a whole host of other sensors), but the NFC sensor seem to be absent.
The price of the ASUS Z01B is not known yet but considering that the device features a Snapdragon 400-series chip, it suggests that even though the device might not be a speed demon in any way, it may not be priced very heavily.
