• 5th Generation ASUS ZenFones Announced at MWC

    You're likely to read a lot of derision from Apple fan blogs about the new ASUS Zenfone 5Z. It's the first of what's probably going to be a wave of Android phones from the Far East that mimic the infamous notch on the iPhone X. Somewhat hilariously, ASUS claimed in their Mobile World Congress event that their notch is 26% smaller than Fruit Phone X. That's a pretty bold claim; let's see how their trio of new devices spec out:



    ZenFone 5Z (ZS620KL)
    6.2 Full HD+ IPS display (19:9)
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor
    4 / 6 / 8 GB RAM, 64 / 128 / 256 GB storage + microSD
    12 MP + 8 MP wide-angle rear cameras, 8 MP selfie cam
    3,300 mAh battery
    Dual SIM
    3.5 mm audio jack, stereo speakers
    Android Oreo
    Available in Meteor Silver, Midnight Blue



    ZenFone 5 (ZE620KL)
    6.2 Full HD+ IPS display (19:9)
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor
    4 / 6 GB RAM, 64 GB storage + microSD
    12 MP + 8 MP wide-angle rear cameras, 8 MP selfie cam
    3,300 mAh battery
    Dual SIM
    3.5 mm audio jack, stereo speakers
    Android Oreo
    Available in Meteor Silver, Midnight Blue



    ZenFone 5Q / Lite (ZC600KL)
    6 inch Full HD+ IPS display (18:9)
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 / 630 processor
    3 / 4 GB RAM, 32 / 64 GB storage + microSD
    16 MP + 8 MP wide-angle rear cameras, 20 MP + 8 MP selfie cams
    3,300 mAh battery
    Dual SIM
    3.5 mm audio jack, mono speaker
    Android Oreo
    Available in Midnight Black, Moonlight White, Rouge Red

    ASUS also announced a new ZenFone Max M1 (ZB555KL), a cheaper device with a big 4,000 mAh battery as its big draw. Unfortunately they don't yet have a product page up for that, so I can't verify the other specs.

      The question for me, is did Asus put the T-Mobile band 12 on it that can be used with VoLTE and Wifi calling.
