  1. Asus accidentally leaked its ZenFone 4 line of smartphones by publishing new phone listings on its French website. The leaks include the ZenFone 4, the ZenFone 4 Selfie, the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro and the ZenFone 4 Max.

    Android Police was able to grab a few screenshots which along with photos, list each phone's specifications:

    ZenFone 4

    • 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display
    • Snapdragon 630 processor
    • 4GB of RAM with 64GB of expandable storage
    • 3,300mAh battery
    • Dual rear-facing camera system comprised of one 12-megapixel sensor and one 8-megapixel sensor; 8-megapixel front-facing camera
    • Available in white and black
    • €499 in France

    ZenFone 4 Max

    • 5.2-inch IPS 1280 x 720 display
    • 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage
    • 4,100mAh battery
    • Dual rear-facing cameras with 13-megapixel sensor and 5-megapixel sensor; 8-megapixel front-facing camera
    • €229.99 in France

    ZenFone 4 Selfie

    • Snapdragon 430 processor
    • 5.5-inch IPS 1280 x 720 display
    • 4GB of RAM with 64GB of expandable storage
    • 3,000mAh battery
    • Two front-facing cameras, one 20-megapixel sensor and one 8-megapixel sensor with a flash; 16-megapixel rear-facing camera
    • €299.99 in France

    ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro

    • Snapdragon 625 processor
    • 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display
    • 4GB RAM with 64GB of expandable storage
    • Dual front-facing cameras with 24-megapixel sensor and 5-megapixel sensor; 16-megapixel rear-facing camera
    • €399.99 in France

    The ZenFone 4 Max was already unveiled in Russia but it seems that Asus is rolling that out to other markets as well. Asus also seems to want plenty of choices for their customers. Each phone has something different such as the dual front-facing cameras in the Selfie and Selfie Pro.

    Spec-wise, none of the handsets are particularly high-end but those who don't mind mid-range devices have plenty to choose from. Unfortunately, all four phones launch with Android 7.0 instead of more recent versions and Asus isn't exactly known for timely updates.

    The company is set to officially unveil the new ZenFones on August 19 so hopefully more details including a U.S. release will be announced.

    Im so happy they went with snapdragon in the 4 max - the 3 max has a miserable mediatek chip in it.

    Accidental leak B.S. = under-radar advertisement. That's what lots of companies are doing nowadays when they want to save on AD campaigns and put a spin on the proverbial rumor mill, to plant a temptation for the product.

    I'm surprised someone noticed it. It's just another generic looking phone anyway.

    I don't believe in accidental leaks. I can see a board meeting right now: "How can we generate some hype over our products? How about we 'accidentally' leak some info."

    No such thing as "accidental leaks"... the term nowadays is yawn-inducing ...
