ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro goes official with Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6 GB RAM and Dual Rear Cameras
ASUS announced the ZenFone 4 today at an event held in Taipei, Taiwan. However, that’s not the only phone this Taiwanese manufacturer announced. Alongside announcing the ZenFone 4, ASUS also announced its flagship smartphone, dubbed ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro.
Like the ZenFone 4, the ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro also flaunts a uni-body design and is made up of aluminium by using the advanced nano-molding technology (NMT). Also, while the ZenFone 4 is powered by Snapdragon 630/660 Soc, the ZenFone 4 Pro comes powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 835 chipset which is laced with 6 GB RAM.
However, unlike the ZenFone 4 which comes with 64 GB internal storage, the ZenFone 4 Pro is offered in 64 GB as well as 128 GB internal storage variants. Of course, if even 128 GB of internal storage is not enough, you can expand the external storage up to 2 Terabytes by using a microSD card.
Like the ZenFone 4, the ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro also boasts a dual camera setup at the back, however, while the former comes with a 12 MP standard + 8 MP wide-angle camera, the latter retains the 12 MP snapper, but, instead comes with a 16 MP shooter which offers 2x optical zoom.
One more difference between the ZenFone 4 and ZenFone 4 Pro is that the former ships with a 3300 mAh battery whereas the latter comes packed with a slightly larger 3600 mAh battery.
