ASUS Has Unveiled Its Zenfone 5Z Lineup in the Philippines
ASUS has unveiled its greatest phone yet, the ASUS Zenfone 5Z—complete with beefed-up specs, a relatively affordable price point, and the now-notorious iPhone X-notch. ASUS’ new flagship (killer?) was officially launched in the Philippines last April 14, in the newly opened One Esplanade in Pasay City.
A few things to get excited by ASUS’ new phone, the 5Z: a gorgeous 6.2-inch 19:9 all-screen display that sports a whopping 90% screen-to-body ratio. It’s powered by the latest Snapdragon 845, a much-needed reason for the flagship’s promise of powerful 3rd-Gen AI, which is further reinforced with Adreno 630 Graphics and Kyro 385 CPU.
AI is the basket in which the Zenfone 5Z has tossed all its apples, integrating AI tech to everything from charging to its display to, most prominently, the camera(s). Which brings me: the ASUS Zenfone 5Z (and its smaller brother, the Zenfone 5) both sport a dual-cam system powered by a Sony IMX363 sensor with large 1.4µm pixels, a f/1.8 wide-aperture lens, 120° wide-angle secondary camera, four-axis optical image stabilization (OIS) and AI-enhanced camera features.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Zenfone 5Z, including specs, pricing, and where to buy.
