MWC 2018 – Asus prepared to unveil Zenfone 5, Zenfone 5 max Pro and ZenFone 5 Lite


Asus is all set to unveil its Zenfone 5 range of smartphones at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona. For this Asus already sent out invites, the launch event will be held at 7:30pm CET on February 27 (12am IST, February 28).

Asus has not revealed the model names yet but a new leak from the Chinese media which seems to be a legit one as a presentation slide claims that the company might be unveiling standard Zenfone 5 and an entry-level Max variant called Zenfone Max Pro (M1). Also the slide shows Zenfone 5z to be launched somewhere in June this year.


A new leak this Friday from Reputed tipster Evan Blass on Twitter suggest that the ZenFone 5 Lite will also be unveiled at the event. This phone is expected to sport four camera sensors, two on the front and two at the back. Renders suggest a vertical dual camera setup on the rear.

Blass also reveals the photos of the ZenFone 5 Lite. The photos clearly show dual camera module on the back of the phone as well as two selfie cameras on the front. The phone also appears to have a front-facing flash, alongside a dual-LED flash module on the back. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the renders.
