Leaked ZenFone 5 sketches reveal iPhone X inspiration

Leaked ZenFone 5 sketches reveal iPhone X inspiration

Published the first three-dimensional render of the smartphone Asus ZenFone 5, before the announcement of which remained about two weeks.

A few days ago, Roland Quandt revealed in a tweet that a number of phones released this will have a notch in its display including the Zenfone 5. The company will be unveiling the Zenfone 5 and the Zenfone 5 max Pro at the MWC 2018, while the flagship Zenfone 5z will launch sometime in June 2018.

An image of the ASUS ZenFone 5 Lite (attached above) has been leaked online by the ever so reliable leakster Evan Blass. The rear setup will have a 16MP sensor paired with a 2MP sensor, while the front has a 20MP + 2MP combo. Also, Asus is teasing the design of the Zenfone 5 lineup.




The fingerprint sensor is also found on the back, which leads GSM Arena to believe that the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite will be shipped sans capacitive controls and a home button on the front for full on-screen navigation experience. Although the phone will come with a notch like the iPhone X's, it won't feature a facial recognition system, rather, the notch will only house the selfie camera, earpiece and other sensors. A 3.5mm audio jack apparently won't be part of the package, less ASUS decided for a more unconventional placement of the headphone port, i.e. had it installed on the top of the handset. The photograph seen above suggests the next ASUS-made mid-ranger will ship with dual stereo speakers positioned at its bottom, sandwiching a USB Type-C port. It should be running the ZenUI based on Android 8.0 Oreo.

ASUS is expected to launch the ZenFone 5 later this month at MWC, hence, we might see this Taiwanese company launching the ZenFone 5 Lite as well at the same event alongside some other smartphones in the ZenFone 5 series.

According to a Geekbench listing, the Zenfone 5 Lite will have a Snapdragon 660 processor and 4GB of RAM which puts it in the upper mid-range category.
