Asus has recently unveiled three phones under it’s popular Zenfone series and while the Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5 Lite received all the love and attention, the third one was released quietly: the Asus Zenfone 5Z. However, this is actually the most expensive one among the three and here we will discuss the specs and the Asus Zenfone 5Z Dubai price.
Just like the Asus Zenfone 5, the 5z comes with a notch on top of the display that will definitely make you think of the iPhone X. It’s nothing unique at this point but this is definitely something that makes the phone look really attractive and the glossy aluminum body only adds to it. The phone is not too big but thanks to the near bezel-less display, it’s packing a giant 6.2-inch screen showing 2246 x 1080 pixels resolution, 18.7:9 aspect ratio and 402ppi of pixel density. From what we have learned so far, it’s not IP rated for dust and water resistance but we do get a 3.5mm headphone jack which is missing in a lot of phones nowadays.
Asus is promoting the AI side of their new camera and things are looking good in the camera department. It can detect the environment and what you are trying to capture and then come up with the necessary tweaks and changes to capture that beautiful shot you want. There are features like Real-time Beautification, AI Photo Learning, Real-time Portraits and AI Scene Detection. There are two cameras on the back: a 12-megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture and one 8-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture. Users get EIS and dual-LED dual tone flash with these cameras. The front camera is also quite impressive as it’s an 8-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture. We will have to wait for the Asus Zenfone 5Z release date UAE to find out how these cameras perform in different situations. For now, there is the Huawei P20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus that you can check out as these phones are packing really great cameras.
This is where the Asus Zenfone 5z is quite different from it’s brothers, it’s packing the latest and powerful processor: Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor paired with an optional 4/6/8 GB of RAM depending on the RAM you choose. Although it’s packing a more powerful processor, it’s still powered by a 3300mAh Li-Ion battery just like the Asus Zenfone 5. We were expecting to see a bigger battery here considering the specs inside but the fast battery charging support is there. Other notable features include: Dual speakers, Bluetooth v5.0, DTS Headphone X, fingerprint sensor, NFC and Android 8.0 Oreo operating system.
The Asus Zenfone 5Z will be more expensive compared to the other two and will be available for about AED 2000 . From what we have learned from the official announcement, the Asus Zenfone 5z release date UAE can be expected sometimes in June and not in May like its siblings.
