Asus X00ID clears the FCC, might be a Zenfone 4 variant

Following a pretty long wait, Asus is almost ready to unleash the entire Zenfone 4 line of smartphones. The company has so far outed the Zenfone 4 Max for some markets, but it hasn’t started shipping yet. That’s likely to happen in August, while the full Zenfone 4 family may launch in Europe in September.

While we wait, a new Asus device has been certified by the US FCC. It has the model number X00ID, and we have in fact seen this one before, in a benchmark run back in May. That revealed most of its specs, and given the timing of the FCC certification we assume this very well could be one of the lower-end Zenfone 4 models.

The X00ID has a 5.5-inch 720p touchscreen and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 chipset. 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and an 8 MP selfie camera are all on board too. On the rear there’s a dual camera setup comprising of a 12 MP sensor and a 5 MP one. It is in fact pretty similar to the Zenfone 4 Max, but boasts lesser specs in some important departments. The Asus X00ID will be sold at least in the US, Europe, Singapore, and Malaysia.
