- The Asus Zenfone 7 will purportedly start at €499 in Europe.
- This would be in line with the Zenfone 6’s European pricing.
Asus quietly confirmed that the Zenfone 7 series was launching next week, being a follow-up to the standout that was the Zenfone 6. Now, it looks like we might have a few key details in tow, including pricing.
Reliable WinFuture journalist Roland Quandt has tweeted that the Asus Zenfone 7 will come with a Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset, 6GB to 8GB of RAM, 128GB to 256GB of storage, and a 5,000mAh battery. Check out the tweet below.
499 for the 6/128 variant.

Furthermore, the journalist notes that the device will be priced at €499 (~$594) for the 6GB/128GB model. This is in line with the Zenfone 6’s European launch pricing (€499 but $499 in the US), albeit for 64GB of storage in the base model.
Need even more RAM and storage? Then Quandt says the 8GB/256GB variant will retail for €549 (~$654) in Europe. This is cheaper than the 8GB/256GB Zenfone 6 at launch, which would set you back €599.
Here’s hoping the Zenfone 7 maintains the Zenfone 6’s $499 price in the US too, as the old phone was an absolute bargain at launch. In saying so, it’s tougher than ever for brands to offer an affordable flagship in 2020, with even the likes of the OnePlus 8 starting at $699.
