If we talk about the rumor-mill of tech and smartphones, renders are on top these days. Similarly there's sort of buzz around the web regarding the new 3rd gen of the Zenfone lineup by Asus.
Below are some images of the unofficial renders which are believed to be close to the original devices.
Rumors are there that the Zenfone 3 will sport the same 5.5" 1920x1080 display module (nothing clear about the technology, let's hope for a clear black OLED this time!) and will be seen running on a QS 650 SoC topped by 3GB RAM.
Talking about the Zenfone 3 Deluxe, it'll hold a bigger and lesser pixel dense screen, a 5.9" 1280x720 unit and maybe the internal specs be the same this time. Out of the box, there will be ZENUi seen running over 6.0 Marshmallow. No clear news about the cameras too. Hopefully there must be atleast 12mp Rear /8mp Front combo.
This time it's seen that the devices will hold a physical tactile response button alongside two touch-capacitive keys.
Maybe Asus is going to launch the lineup at the Computex 2016 which dates at May 31st, while the Zenfone 2 was launched at the CES 2015 while Deluxe version of it was launched in September '15.
