O Asus Zenfone 6 it’s the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B are closer to an official launch in Brazil: both were approved by the Anatel and are released for sale in Brazil. The Asus phone has a dual swivel camera, while the newest computer-on-a-board from the Raspberry Pi Foundation comes with 4K support and up to 4 GB of RAM.
As usual, the approval was discovered by Cesar Cardoso do Mobile Penguins. The Zenfone 6 (ZS630KL) received the homologation certificate last Tuesday (3).
Asus previously told the AndroidPit that Zenfone 6 would arrive in Brazil between “August and September”. With the approval of Anatel, its launch should occur soon.
Asus’ mobile phone stands out for its swiveling camera: it features a 48 megapixel sensor from Sony and a 13 megapixel sensor with a 125 degree ultrawide lens. The Zenfone 6 is in second place in the DxOMark Selfie ranking for frontal cameras, behind only the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+.
It has top-of-the-line specs, including Snapdragon 855 processor, generous 5,000 mAh battery and up to 8 GB of RAM. The device runs Android 9 Pie, but Asus has been recruiting users to test the beta of Android 10.
Raspberry Pi 4 has USB 3.0 ports and up to 4 GB of RAM
In turn, the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is an evolution of the computer that fits on a single card: Broadcom’s quad-core processor is faster; there are USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet ports; and micro-HDMI outputs support 4K screens.
The Raspberry Pi 4 has three memory options: 1 GB, 2 GB or 4 GB. Anatel’s documentation does not say which of these models was approved. Charging is done via USB-C, but does not work with some cables due to a design flaw.
The official Raspberry Pi reseller in Brazil is the FilipeFlop store; it markets the Pi 3 Model B + and other models. Filipe Macedo, CEO and founder of the company, confirms to the Tecnoblog that Pi 4 will be launched in the country, but it needs to come with the Anatel certification number printed on the plate, which takes some time.
