Original story (published on September 02, 2020) follows:

Asus announced the ZenFone 7 series back in August and both devices from the series are now up for grabs. Both devices feature the Snapdragon 865 series chipsets but the Pro offers slightly higher performance with the Snapdragon 865+ SoC.

Also, the smartphones offer Android 10 out-of-the-box and with such specs the duo qualifies for Asus’ flagship for 2020. To make them even better, Asus has already provided both devices with the first update which offers many improvements.

While Asus’s ZenUI 7 offers a lot of interesting and handy features, modders and developers are always looking for something extra. Since Asus offers Android devices, modders and developers will not have any issues getting what they want with the software.
