The TENAA listing suggests that the Asus smartphone might feature a triple rear camera setup at the back.

Asus has recently launched its two new flagship smartphones in the global market — the ZenFone 8 and the ZenFone 8 Flip. However, it seems that the company is not ready to stop anytime soon and it has been reported that Asus is working on a new device that has mysteriously spotted on the TENAA listing. According to a report from XDA Developers, a mysterious Asus smartphone has been spotted on the TENAA certification site and revealed some of the vital information about the handset along with some renders. Let’s have a closer look at the TENAA listing of the upcoming Asus smartphone.

Mysterious Asus Smartphone TENAA Certification

According to the TENAA certification website, the upcoming Asus smartphone is with model number ASUS_I007D. As per the report, the code name matches the device code-named VODKA which appeared inside the kernel source code of the ASUS ROG Phone 5. Back in March folks at XDA Developers claimed that they have unearthed two new smartphones codenamed SAKE and PICASSO, which were launched as the ZenFone 8 and the ZenFone 8 Flip respectively.

Further, the report suggests that the VODKA (ASUS_I007D) might be a smartphone from the ZenFone 8 series, however, there is no certainty to this claim. The renders on the TENAA listing showcased a dedicated Snapdragon logo at the centre of the rear panel which is very rear on a smartphone. Back in 2020, a report from DigiTimes claimed that Asus and Qualcomm are joining hands to develop a gaming-centric phone which is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 875 SoC. It seems that the Snapdragon 888 is the latest SoC from the brand this year and the smartphone might launch with the latest chipset.

The TENAA listing also suggests that the handset will feature a triple rear camera setup along with an LED flash placed at the top left corner of the rear panel. Underneath the camera module, there is a fingerprint scanner for security. Besides, the listing didn’t reveal much about the specifications or the name of the device. The company is yet to reveal anything officially so we recommend you to take this information with a pinch of salt.
