There will be two versions of the phone: one powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630, and another sporting a more powerful Snapdragon 660 processor. Both variants will have 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display. It’ll still have that now trademark Zen-design that was so prominently featured on the ZenFone 3. Like all members of ASUS’ new phone family, the ZenFone 4 will have dual-cameras on the rear, including a primary 12-megapixel shooter as well as a 8-megapixel secondary camera.
