Last week, we reported on a new smartphone from ASUS, with the designation X00GD, getting its TENAA certification. Given the specs, we knew that the phone was most likely going to be a budget offering. After going through our usual sources, we finally know what the XOOGD’s model name really is — The Pegasus 3S. The ASUS Pegasus 3S is, of course, the follow up to the Pegasus 3 that only circulated in China. The specs from TENAA were pretty much spot on, but the exact SoC used has now been named and a few other details have been released. Let’s have a quick look at the specs for the ASUS Pegasus 3S.
ASUS Pegasus 3S Specs
- 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor
- 3GB of RAM
- 5.2-inch HD display; 1280×720 resolution
- 32GB/64GB of expandable storage
- 13-megapixel rear camera, f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, Sony IMX258 image sensor
- 8-megapixel front camera
- 3G, LTE
- Dual SIM
- WiFi, Bluetooth v4.0
- GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS
- Fingerprint scanner
- 5,000mAh battery
- Android 7.0 Nougat with ZenUI 3.1
Again, the specs might be impressive but the inclusion of a 5,000mAh battery plus the fact that it will run on Android 7.0 will most likely give the budget device a bit of attention. The ASUS Pegasus 3S 64GB is said to be priced at 1999 Yuan, or Php 14283, and — like the Pegasus 3 — will only be available in China.
