ASUS has a Zenfone 5 for almost everyone. This new one is meant for the budget-conscious market here in the Philippines. Meet the ASUS Zenfone 5 Lite.
Unlike the Zenfone 5Z and Zenfone 5 (2018), the ASUS Zenfone 5 Lite kept the top and bottom bezels. But thanks to its 6-inch FHD+ screen and 18:9 aspect ratio, this handset doesn’t look too shabby either.
Instead of using a notch, ASUS retained the top bezels and used it to house two front-facing cameras. There’s a 20-megapixel main camera in front and an additional 120-degree wide-angle sensor. You can also spot the extra camera sensor at the back, right next to the 13-megapixel primary shooter.
And for the complete 2018 experience, the Zenfone 5 Lite has both face unlock and fingerprint security features.
