Asus Zenfone 3 Go leaks with specs and renders

Asus’ naming convention is getting more and more confusing with each passing day. Navigating already official models is a challenge in itself, but when it comes to analyzing leaks, it really takes some dedicated investigative work to get the facts straight.

Asus-Zenfone-3-Go


This time around, however, we have an almost suspiciously straight-forward scoop.

The Zenfone 3 Go appears to be a revival of the budget “Go” line. Last we saw a Go unit up on offer was in 2015. The original Asus Zenfone Go ZC500TG bore the typical Zenfone 2 design language, including the bulky arching back and a horizontally centered main camera.

The new Zenfone 3 Go, on the other hand, logically shares most of its aesthetic with the rest of the Zenfone 3 family. The back is flat and from the looks of things has a brushed metal finish. There is no rear-mounted button, nor any physical controls on the front.

Also, the camera design now appears smaller and its circular shape and position near the edge, make the Zenfone 3 Go really blend in with many contemporary offers from the likes of Oppo, Vivo or Meizu.

Apart from the nifty renders, the leak also shares some alleged specs for the Zenfone 3 Go. These include a 5-inch 720p display, Snapdragon 410 chipset, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The camera setup consists of a 13MP main shooter with 1.4 μm pixel size and a 5MP selfie one. Overall, nothing really impressive, but still a pretty decent offer, considering the EUR 150 suggested price point.

Fresh Samsung Galaxy S8 Renders Highlight Design 2017 Video

We’ve already seen countless renders of the Galaxy S8 but these fresh renders that we’ve received today do a good job of showing off what’s likely going to be the design of Samsung’s next flagship smartphone.

They’re based on the schematics that were leaked recently and are in line with all of the rumors that we’ve heard so far about the Galaxy S8′s design.

We can see that there’s no home button and that both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus feature dual-edge curved displays.

The fingerprint sensor is positioned on the back alongside the camera and the 3.5mm headphone jack is present despite reports to the contrary.

The purported live photo of the handset that was leaked recently more or less showed a similar design.

Such renders provide a good idea of what to expect even if they don’t reveal the entire design. Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S8 on March 29. Youtube Video

Huawei P10 leaks out in press renders with curved display, front fingerprint sensor

Huawei’s flagship smartphone, the P10 is just one month away, but for those of you who don’t might getting some info before the big announcement, we have some good news.

A couple of new press renders of the smartphone have just appeared in China, so we can get a clear look at what’s to come. First of all, we have two pictures of the P10’s front side, and another one showing the phone’s back side.

If the photos are the real deal, then they prove Huawei has decided to relocate the fingerprint sensor on the front side, most likely under the physical Home button.

The back side …

Case maker Ghostek renders the LG G6 in a waterproof case

Case maker Ghostek will have to take the blame for potentially ruining two of mobile technology’s best surprises this year. After its Samsung Galaxy S8 renders found their way on the web and triggered much speculation, the same has happened with the LG G6. Dispelling rumors of a glass-covered back panel, the renders show an all-metal body that looks like the LG G5’s after getting rid of the camera and fingerprint scanner “bumps.” That, and the detachable bottom part, as LG is believed to be moving away from the modular concept.

The LG G6 is depicted …

Supposed OPPO Find 9 renders show extra thin bezels and all-screen design

When it comes to elusive smartphones, the Oppo Find 9 has to be it. If we had “vaporware” awards here at PhoneArena, this one would have won for two years in a row now. Announced back in March 2014, the Chinese company’s then-flagship smartphone, the Oppo Find 7 (which succeeded the Find 5), has been left without a heir since – which is incredibly unusual, considering the rapid pace of smartphone development where six-month upgrades (and sometimes less) are hardly surprising. We basically assumed that Oppo quietly retired its Find line in favor of its R-series, yet the odd Find 9 rumor keeps rearing …
