The new upcoming ASUS ZenFone 7 and ZenFone 7 Pro smartphones will receive different processors. This is indicated by the analysis of the source code of the smartphone firmware.
Interesting information was found in the firmware code of the new ASUS smartphone, which appears under the code designation ZF. According to observers, this code hides the device of the ZenFone 7 family.

The closest Asus smartphone will be the gaming ROG Phone 3 – it should be presented before the end of the month. This model will be based on the SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+. But the exact same platform, as it turned out, will be in one of the versions of Zenfone 7.
The code indicates that the device is carrying a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor (motherboard codenamed Kona).
The fact is that in the firmware of a certain promising Asus ZF smartphone (under this designation, Zenfone 7 is probably hiding), there was a mention of both Qualcomm’s flagship platforms – and Snapdragon 865, whose CPU runs at 2.84 GHz, and Snapdragon 865+ with CPU frequency 3.09 GHz.
It turns out that there will be two models: the usual Zenfone 7 based on Snapdragon 865 and, probably, its pro version – on Snapdragon 865+. Both solutions include the powerful Adreno 650 graphics accelerator.
Thus, observers believe that ASUS will release the ZenFone 7 smartphone with the Snapdragon 865 processor and the more powerful version of the ZenFone 7 Pro with the Snapdragon 865 Plus chip. Probably, these devices will also differ in display characteristics and camera configuration.
Some other parameters of the upcoming smartphones were previously disclosed. According to rumors, the equipment will include up to 16 GB of RAM, a flash drive with a capacity of up to 512 GB, an NFC controller, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless adapters. The battery capacity can reach 5000 mAh and a current version of the android operating system.
Other phone specifications, features, and exact price of the smartphone are not officially disclosed.
