The ZenFone 5Z and ZenFone 5 are huge departures for Asus in terms of design, but there's no denying the fact that the two look exactly like the iPhone X. The Asus ZenFone 5Z sits at the very top of the product line, offering high-end specs (mostly) worthy of a true flagship device.
All they said was the Zenfone's 90% screen-to-body ratio is better than the 86% ratio from its competitor, while the notch is "26% smaller than Fruit Phone X", an obvious reference to Apple's iPhone X.
The company also unveiled Zenfone Max (M1) and Max Plus (M1) at the event.
The smartphone comes with a 5.7-inch Full HD+ (2160x1080p) display with 80 percent screen-to-body ratio. The dual-SIM smartphone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with AsusZenUi 5.0 on top. 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.
One aspect which Asus has left alone is Apple's advanced 3D TrueDepth Camera system which powers Animoji and Face Time.
The device features a 6-inch QHD display with a 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution. To take on Samsung's Galaxy S9, the ZenFone 5Z offers a combination of powerful RAM and storage options: 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage. However, in an earlier interaction, the company had said that it will bring both these phones to the Indian market soon, though it did not confirm a timeline.
It features an edge-to-edge display with an iPhone X-like notch at the top, and the elephant in the room is how much this looks like Apple's top-end handset. The cameras are accompanied by an LED flash, phase detection autofocus and have PixelMaster camera modes.
Around back, the 5 Lite has a primary 16MP shooter with a secondary wide-angle lens. On the front, the smartphone comes packed with an 8-megapixel resolution coupled with an f/2.0 aperture and 84-degree field of view. 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. Jargon aside, it essentially ensures the battery doesn't overcharge and based on your sleeping schedule, tops it up in sessions. The selfie camera is an 8MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and support for face unlock.
The Zenfone 5 is powered by a newer midrange processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636, with configurations of 4GB RAM/64GB storage and 6GB RAM/64GB of storage. It's placed a fingerprint sensor at the back too, so that's one area in which it has an advantage over the iPhone X. As of yet, there's no detail about the price of the ZenFone 5. The Zenfone 5 fits a 6.2-inch display within the same physical footprint as the 5.5-inch Zenfone 4. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat with Oreo update planned for Q3 2018.
Asus ZenFone 5 Lite smartphone will be available in two different variants which use different processors. As of yet there is no clear information on which model will hit the Indian shores. There are also RAM and storage variants-3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
On the camera front, the Asus ZenFone 5Z sports a dual rear cameras at the back panel.
