TENAA recently posted some images of a smartphone online disclosing a Snapdragon-based Asus device. The image shows a phone with a Snapdragon name and logo in the center, and the Asus logo placed at the bottom. Also, the picture gives a hint that there is a rear fingerprint scanner. However, the filing explicitly lists an in-display sensor.

The listing reveals the model number of the upcoming device as Asus_I007D. Reportedly, this matches a device code-named VODKA, referred from the ROG hone 5 firmware. FYI, two more devices were found alongside VODKA, codenamed as SAKE and PICASSO. However, these two handsets are already launched as Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip.

Concluding from this, VODKA (ASUS_I007D) could be part of the ZenFone 8 series as they have somewhat similar specs as well. But also, in another case, this could be the new rumored Qualcomm-ASUS gaming phone.

As mentioned, the newly spotted device shares its specs with ZenFone 8 series. According to TENAA’s listing, the phone will feature a 6.78-inch OLED screen. Under the hood, it will equip a 2.84GHz octa-core processor with a Snapdragon chipset (probably Snapdragon 888). Also, it will fuel the latest stable channel, Android 11 out of the box.

The phone will ship with a 3,840 mAh battery along with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. In the shooting section, VODKA will house a triple rear camera setup consisting of a 64MP primary camera. On the other side, it will carry a 12MP selfie snapper. Furthermore, the images reveal a 3.5mm port onboard to serve connectivity purposes.
