Asus make a breakthrough with a step ahead of competitors. After no longer using Intel processors, Taiwanese smartphone manufacturers are increasingly affectionate with Qualcomm. Now, they are believed to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 for Asus Zenfone 4 Pro flagship products.
But not the use of the latest platform from Qualcomm is a concern. Rather, the ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro is the world’s first commercial smartphone that supports Gigabit LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11ad multi-gigabit technologies. ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro is claimed to provide super-fast gigabit connectivity that is invisible, both indoors and on the go.
Integrated with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform, the Snapdragon X16 Gigabit LTE modem provides Asus ZenFone 4 Pro the ability to download at high speed on LTE 4G networks and other compatible LTE networks. It has supported LTE Advanced Cat 12 with 3-channel carrier aggregation for download speeds up to 600 Mbps. This connectivity has the support of Qualcomm TruSignal’s dual antenna technology to capture wider signal coverage.
Meanwhile, the Wi-Fi 11ad connection from Qualcomm Technologies allows users to download and share 4K videos in seconds and be able to sync photos, videos and other files in the clouds for a moment.
In addition, when users connect smartphones with other devices such as laptops, the Wi-Fi hotspot feature of the Snapdragon Mobile Platform is designed to provide the same wireless Gigabit LTE speed even in crowded places, such as airports.
Just like the upcoming 5GNR standard, 11ad utilizes the mmWave spectrum (in this case the 60Ghz band) which has the capacity to carry large amounts of data so that it can complement existing cellular and Wi-Fi networks.
Asus ZenFone 4 Pro users will also enjoy powerful Wi-Fi connectivity thanks to the integration of 2×2 MU-MIMO 802.11ac technology that offers twice the throughput of 1×1 Wi-Fi. Also increased coverage for signal capture, especially in buildings surrounded by brick and concrete walls.
Not only does it take advantage of unprecedented gigabit connectivity capabilities, Asus ZenFone Pro 4 also takes advantage of the Qualcomm Spectra 180 Image Signal Processor (ISP) capable of supporting 14-bit dual image signal processing and Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) Qualcomm Adreno 540. It is believed to improve the imaging experience on smartphones and allow users to enjoy an immersive 360-degree visual experience.
Especially with the use of IMX362 which is a flagship image sensor from Sony, on paper capabilities Asus Zenfone 4 Pro camera will be special. Be able to compete with camera features from other global premium phones. And of course significantly different than the smartphone that is still one family that is Zenfone 4 Max Pro the quality of the photography is less satisfactory despite having Dual Camera.
Technically, Asus Zenfone 4 Pro uses Dual Camera with F / 1.7 aperture, OIS and pixel size are 1.12μm large enough. This phone supports 10x total zoom where the optical zoom is 2x. It is also the first mobile phone with three lenses to use Sony’s high-end sensors. The other sensor on the front for selfie supports fast phase detection autofocus. And supported by ASUS SuperPixel Engine to ensure the image 8x brighter in low light conditions.
Unfortunately, no news of ASUS flagship phone will land in Indonesia. Hopefully, in the near future, we can taste it. So the battle of the flagship mobile phone more exciting. Seeing the specifications are very high, so Asus Zenfone 4 Pro will be priced above IDR 8 million.
