Earlier we had got the invite for the MWC 2018 launch event which also mentions the number 5 on it.We had also spotted the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite on Russian Certification website and also the Asus Zenfone 5 Max on Wifi Alliance.Now we have the renders of the upcoming Asus Zenfone 5 leaked.
As per the leaked manual, the Asus Zenfone 5 is now having iPhone X like Dual camera setup at the back with LED flash below the camera module.It is having a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner placed in the middle of the device with Asus branding below it.It is having iPhone 7 like antenna bands running on both above and below of the device.So probably the new Asus Zenfone 5 will be built out of metal.
At the front, we have the new 18:9 aspect ratio FHD+ display curved edges with thick top and bottom bezels.Above the display, we have the selfie camera with earpiece and sensors.As per the user manual, the device is having model number ASUS X00PD.
