We just spotted the Asus Z01B model at Bluetooth SIG, which is widely believed as to be the laser edition of upcoming Asus flagship, the Zenfone 3. That it will sport Bluetooth version 4.2 is just one of the several specs confirmed thanks to the listing.
First up, as Asus likes it, there are gonna be more than one or two variants of Zenfone 3 Laser. Have a look at the various model nos. that the Zenfone 3 Laser listing makes mention of: ASUS_Z01BDA, ASUS_Z01BDB, ASUS_Z01BD, ZC551KL and ASUS_Z01BDC.
Of these, the odd one is ZC551KL, which a quick Google search points to Zenfone TV Go, or the Zenfone 3 Laser itself. We’re inclined to buy neither, but Z3L looks more likely.
Confirmed Zenfone 3 Laser specs include the following:
- Android 6.0.1
- 5.5-inch Full GD display (1920 x 1080 pixels)
- Qualcomm procesor
- 13MP rear camera
- 8MP front facing camera
- 5GB free Asus web storage
So, this one definitely won’t sport a Quad HD display, but that’s alright, right?
BTW, last year’s laser model were were label under the ZE series, so it’s surprising that this time around Z01B is being rumored as label for Zenfone 3 Laser. But Laser edition is not alone, the regular Zenfone 3 is also seeing a change of series in 2016.
