Asus already invited the press and tech enthusiasts alike to an exclusive press event which will be held in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress 2018, where the Taiwan-based OEM will be introducing its ZenFone 5 smartphone series, including the ZenFone 5 Lite.
Thanks to Evan Blass, we’ve taken a good look at ZenFone 5 Lite’s design through a promo image, and over the weekend a live shot was also leaked online, but this time around is the Midnight Black version, not the Moonlight White one. ANd there will be a Rouge Red version as well.
According to Blass, ZenFone 5 Lite will feature an 18:9 display with Full HD+ screen resolution, probably, a screen that is between 5.5 and 6-inches in diagonal. Another interesting feature is the dual camera setup at the front and the back. The ZenFone 5 Lite will come equipped with 2 x 20 MP sensors for selfies with bokeh, beauty and group selfie modes, 2 x 16 MP sensors at the back (don’t expect Optical Image Stabilization). There is also a an LED Flash and a fingerprint sensor positioned right under the dual sensors setup at the back.
We are also treated with a sneak peek at how its design will look like in real life, in a first real live shot that captures the Midnight Black version, which we know it is not much of a reveal but, it is something rather than nothing.
Asus is expected to embed a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset in the ZenFone 5 Lite, presumably a Snapdragon 630 series CPU or a Snapdragon 660.
We will know more about Asus’ ZenFone 5 line-up in exactly 15 days from today.
