ASUS ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5 Lite leak ahead of MWC



  • Two unannounced ASUS devices, the ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5 Lite, have been leaked.
  • Both handsets are rumored to sport 18:9, FHD+ displays, but they would feature different designs.
  • The devices are likely to be shown off, alongside the ZenFone 5 Max, at MWC 2018.

The rumored ASUS ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5 Lite have been leaked, along with some press renders and specs details. The information arrived via reputable leakers @evleaks and @rquandt (of last week, so it’s likely to be accurate.

The ZenFone 5 Lite is set to come with an 18:9 display (probably between 5.5-6 inches) with FHD+ resolution, though the chipset and RAM it would include wasn’t speculated upon.

We did get some details regarding the cameras, though: the handset is tipped to house dual front- and rear-facing cameras, coming in at 20 MP + 20 MP and 16 MP + 16 MP respectively.

We also got a look at three color variants of the device: Midnight Black, Moonlight White, Rouge Red.

The ZenFone 5 is also rumored to be rocking an 18:9 display with FHD+ resolution, but it may be the better optimized, as it appears to run right up to the top of the device with an iPhone X-like cutout for the speaker and front camera.

Unlike the Lite model, this seems to include only a single front-facing camera, though a dual camera system will still be in place on the rear. Other details include USB Type-C connectivity (the Lite model features microUSB), dual-SIM support and the inclusion of a headphone jack.

We’ve previously encountered leaks about the ZenFone 5 Max also; given the timing, it’s looking likely that this series will be unveiled at MWC 2018.
