Asus ZenFone 5Z is powered by the Snapdragon 845, priced below $500

All about ASUS's Zen Fone Max

All variants will run Qualcomm's latest and greatest, the Snapdragon 845 and have a 6.2 inch FHD with a 90% screen to body ratio - I am unsure how the notch fits into the whole screen resolution measurement but maybe someone will need to standardise this for future Android phones. The new line-up also includes ZenFone 5 Lite. This battery should be sufficient to last the phone through a day's use. The new phone uses a wide-gamut LCD with a resolution of 2246x1080.

When quizzed about these overreaching AI claims, Asus said it was "adopting a broad definition of AI". The Galaxy S9 has 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

Asus has also launched "Zenimoji" which is once again an Apple rip-off (also rhymes with Animoji!). Videos will scale to the correct aspect ratio with black bars on the sides instead of playing behind the notch. Asus, for one, will be announcing a new Zenfone smartphone tonight at the annual tech expo. On the front, you get an 8-megapixel sensor for clicking selfies and video calling. The hybrid slot of the Asus ZenFone 5/5Z supports either a second LTE SIM or a microSD memory card up to 2TB. In its presentation, Asus remarked that you can use face recognition with the 8 MP front camera, or fingerprint recognition with the centrally-mounted sensor to unlock the device.

The Asus ZenFone Max (M1) (ZB555KL) sports dual-rear camera setup, with a 13-megapixel primary sensor coupled with a f/2.0 aperture, dual-LED flash, and PDAF. ZenFone 5Z also comes with two five-magnet stereo speakers on board, which are driven by dual smart amplifiers to ensure good audio experience. Both the ZenFone 5 lineup smartphones more or less come with nearly the same specifications, apart from some hardware change here and there. Although we do not have precise dimensions, so we have to take Asus' word for it, the company did say that the Zenfone 5z and Zenfone 5 will weigh 163g and 155g, respectively. As of yet, there's no detail about the price of the ZenFone 5. The 5Z is higher-end of the two with its Snapdragon 845, but it'll retail for under $500, it sounds like. It also tops out at 6 GB of memory and 64 GB of storage. It's just too bad they've resorted to misleading marketing to get the message across though.

Around back, the 5 Lite has a primary 16MP shooter with a secondary wide-angle lens.

Real Madrid star tells teammate he is moving to Chelsea
Prior to the penalty goal, Benzema had only scored three goals, and Ronaldo's act does not surprise Navas. Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane insists he wasn't trying to send a message to Dani Ceballos this week.

In MobileSyrup's brief hands-on time, we noted how premium the mid-range device felt and were impressed by the responsive camera, as well as the vibrant, clear quality of the pictures we took. The pro mode allows users to change exposure, white balance, and ISO, and also gives you a range of shutter speeds from 1/10000 to 32 seconds.

Among the many variations of dual-camera setups, Asus opted for a secondary wide-angle lens for the Zenfone 5.

The Zenfone 5 is meant to be the phone that will bring back Asus its lost glory in the smartphone market. The USB-C socket and 3.5mm headphone jack are positioned in the same place, along the phone's bottom edge.

The ZenFone 5Z is the big Daddy of them all and packs some very decent specs within it's iPhone X-looking body. That's probably because it uses the Snapdragon 630 SoC that lacks the required AI-acceleration bits for said functions. The Zenfone 5 comes with 4 or 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. There has been no mention of the price, though ASUS has confirmed a March launch for the Zenfone 5 and a Jue launch for the Zenfone 5Z. If you can not afford the iPhone X, consider the options of Zenfone 5 series.
