Asus' new ZenFone 5 lineup features impressive specs and ultra-slim bezels
Mar 02, 2018, 02:45
Both the Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5Z deliver a full-screen experience on a budget, which is a good thing for end consumers. Asus also introduced a new feature called Zenmoji, and as the name itself suggests, it's a rip off to iPhone X's Animoji feature. Asus only announced price for the 5Z, but said that the Snapdragon 845-endowed phone with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage will start at a pretty-affordable €479, or around $488 without Value-Added Tax.
The ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Z are similar phones that use the exact same body, and what a body it is. The phone also holds a solution if you're anxious about overheating from heavy use, with four 0.06mm thick carbon fiber cooling pads that reduce the heat from the Snapdragon 845. "Thanks to the bezel-less display, the Zenfone 5 boasts a 90% screen-to-body ratio giving it the form factor of a 5.5" phone. For some reason, Asus has announced this at MWC 2018 but it won't be on shelves until April for the Zenfone 5 and June for the Zenfone 5Z. The display has a rather unorthodox aspect ratio of 19:9 which is a minor issue for content consumption. The ZenFone 5Z uses the power of AI to rapidly analyze the subject and match it to one of its 16 scene types, optimizing the camera settings for nearly any kind of shot from sunsets to pet pics. However the specification is again a bit confusing as there are 3 models, the lowest will be 4GB Ram and 64GB storage. The Asus ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5 Lite, both announced at Mobile World Congress, are here to prove that point. No word on pricing yet but should be available from March. The device also comes with face detection and fingerprint sensor. Around back are a 16MP camera and a 120-degree wide-angle camera.
There's also an 8MP selfie shooter on the front with an aperture of f/2.0. Asus says notifications will wrap around the notch, which is smaller than that of Apple's handset. A 3300mAh battery completes the package. Other rumored features include Android 8.0 Oreo running out-of-the-box and dual-SIM support.
Leaked renders of the smartphone hinted at a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, along with a dual-camera setup positioned vertically.
The high-performance ZenFone 5Z is powered by the latest Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with AIE, featuring a 3rd Generation AI platform that includes the Hexagon 685 Vector DSP, Adreno 630 Graphics, and Kryo 385 CPU. The primary phone, the ZenFone 5Z, actually runs on 2018 specs including the Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM. More simply, it will come down to whether you've ever considered what it is like to run Android apps on an iPhone. Only the first two were mentioned on stage, but only the 5 and 5Z will have the strong resemblance to the iPhone X.

Asus reps played the little-known song Despacito on the ZenFone 5, the Galaxy S8, and Google Pixel 2, and the difference was clear. A new ZenUI based on Android Oreo also comes pre-installed. For the battery, ZenFone 5Z has a 3,300mAh one on board with the company's proprietary "BoostMaster" fast-charge technology.
