With CES 2017 around the corner, several smartphone manufacturers are gearing up to release new smartphones during the event. A new handset dubbed to be Asus X00GD has surfaced on the Chinese telecommunication authority website TENNA.
Based on the available information, the new Asus X00GD smartphone will feature a 5.2-inch HD display and metal body. The new phone looks very similar to that of Xiaomi Redmi 3s. Moreover, as per the TENAA listing, the phone will ship with a massive 4850mAh battery and will be available in Luxury Gold, Rose Gold, and Black color variants.
Even though there are reports that Asus might launch a new smartphone powered by a Snapdragon processor during the CES 2016, there is no credible evidence to provide that it will be the rumored Asus X00GD. Interestingly, Asus has started to mail out media invites for the launch event.
Initially spotted by Phonearena, the new Asus handset could ship with a 2.5D glass upfront metal body design. However, the website states that the phone could be ZenFone 4. However, if you search on Google, you will be able to infer that ZenFone 4 was launched in January 2014.

You can control the smartphone using the volume rocker and power button located on the right side.
In addition to the design, the TENAA listing also provides specifications and features of the handset. However, there is no official information about the expected availability of the handset.
