Spotted in the wild! Zenfone 4 with Snapdragon 835. Is it the Pro?

Update: Indeed, this is the Zenfone 4 Pro.

Thanks to Roland Quandt, a new Zenfone 4 has been spotted in the wild. We aren’t talking about the already unveiled Zenfone 4 Max either. This is what appears to be a premium model that is sporting the latest Snapdragon 835 processor.

For this testing on the live network, a new generation ASUS smartphone was used – TIM Press Release



It’s very had to find details from the images available. In fact it does look like this phone is in a bumper case. Is it even a final version in terms of design even? We don’t know. Roland claims it’s the Zenfone 4 Pro, although we can’t find any reference anywhere on the web to back up or support that claim. Roland didn’t source his information regarding the naming of this model.

We like the finger print sensor on the front!

A better look!

What we do know is that this Zenfone is a new generation. That indicates a Zenfone 4 here. Also confirmed is that this phone features a Snapdragon 835 processor along with an LTE X16 integrated modem and Ericsson’s LTE-Licensed Assisted Access network technology.

The reason for this “in the wild” exposure is because it was used as part of a Qualcomm presentation in Italy which showed some record LTE speeds. Gigabit LTE folks.
