As the build-up to the MWC 2017 continues, the rumour mill has steadily been feeding infos about likely products to expect and what not. In the case of ASUS, the high-end Zenfone 4 is said to have been pushed back until at least Summer due to shortage in component supplies and the company is expected to launch the Asus Zenfone 3 Go instead.
According to confirmed sources, the Asus Zenfone 3 Go will feature a 5-inch display with 720p (HD) screen resolution, 2GB of RAM, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (MSM8916) processor clocked at 1.2GHz paired with Adreno 306 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB built-in storage space.
The camera setup here is a bit similar to the Huawei P8 Lite 2017 – a rear facing 13MP AF camera with LED flash and a front facing 5MP camera with Soft LED flash for brighter selfies. It is also expected to sport a metal chassis with thin polycarbonate body insert (antenna bands on the top and bottom) and support 4G LTE networks (possibly with VoLTE).
With a retail price around EUR 150, the company is marketing the Asus Zenfone 3 Go as a social and multimedia smartphone, with features such as the Five-Magnet speaker with smart amp and Dual MEMS microphones for clearer chat and less noise.
PS: The Zenfone 3 Go has undergone an overhaul in design compared to other Zenfone Go series device and will slot in ahead off the Zenfone Go 4.5 and Zenfone Go 5.0, when it goes official later sometime this month.
