Two unknown ASUS devices were spotted in GFXBench just recently, and it was speculated that it could be the upcoming ZenFone 3 in two variants.
The first model, under the code-name Z010DD is to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset (with a 1.5 GHz octa-core CPU), 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 5.9-inch 720p display, a 12MP or 13MP rear camera + 5MP selfie snapper, and an Android 6.0 Marshmallow inside the hood.

Coming courtesy of suppliers, this rumour indicates that the upcoming ASUS ZenFone 3smartphones will also come with a fingerprint sensor developed by Elan Microelectronics and Goodix. While no specific Malaysia release dates were mentioned, it will probably be announced sometime in January or February 2015 (probably during one of the earlier expos) with a regional launch in April or May 2016 (like last year for the ZenFone 2). We expect this fingerprint sensor to be one-touch and located on the back along with the rear volume controls.

Currently there are no speculated tech specs or Malaysia release dates for the ZenFone 3, but it is assumed that it will include high-end, mid-range and low-end smartphones like the current ZenFone 2 series.
