ASUS has recently updated its ROG series of smartphones and is anticipated to launch a new addition to the Zenfone lineup later this year. This information has been substantiated by the discovery of the ASUS Zenfone 11, identified by the model number ASUS AI2401_D, on Google Play.
The listing not only unveiled the smartphone's design but also provided insights into certain technical specifications. The device is set to be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset featuring an octa-core CPU, coupled with an Adreno 830 GPU.
Staying true to the tradition of incorporating Qualcomm's leading-edge chipsets in the Zenfone series, the Zenfone 11 hints at being powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 (?) chipset.
The Zenfone 10 was equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, and logically, the succeeding model would be anticipated to adopt the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, featuring the Adreno 750 GPU. Nevertheless, the listing hints at a chipset with a different GPU, prompting speculation about the possibility of a Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC.
The Zenfone 11 is set to boast a maximum of 16GB RAM and a Full HD+ display with a centrally positioned punch hole for the selfie camera. It is expected to operate on Android 14, indicating compatibility with the latest Zen UI overlay.
Additionally, the image of the smartphone unveils a taller aspect ratio and a screen reminiscent of the ROG Phone 8, suggesting a departure from ASUS's previous compact design approach.
Further details about the Zenfone 11 are anticipated to emerge in the upcoming months.
