Asus has scheduled a Zenfone 5 announcement for February 27 in Barcelona, and the way the company usually does things makes us think it won't be just one Zenfone 5. If anything, the #backto5 tagline could be closer to the number of devices we may see at MWC, in addition to being a shout out to the already existing Zenfone 5s. Just Asus things.
Anyway, one of these Zenfone 5s has been revealed in a manufacturer's manual sporting an (aluminum?) unibody and a tall 18:9 display, likely in the 5.7" ballpark. Carrying an internal designation X00PD, it's unclear which model exactly this would be. Judging by the microUSB port, however, it's looking like a non-flagship device.
Even so, a dual camera on the back suggests it's not a low-end phone either. Asus has made phones with a pair of shooters on the back before; however, starting with this generation, the two sensors are arranged vertically, instead of side by side.
That's just a teaser, though - there's about three weeks until we see the real deal.
thick bezel lol.. i love asus n its zen ui but after the sucses of zenfone 2 i think they have a bad design phone, look more like a chinese phone from the back n old samsung design phone from the front., come on asus u can make a better design than t...
Great...I love that they kept the classic micro usb port...who wants usb type C on a 2018 phone?..right?
Asus should make less device version, improve the software and camera.
