In the last few weeks, there have been a steady stream of leaks related to ASUS’ Zenfone 5 series. The latest is the most exciting so far, as it not only gives us our first official look at one of the phones in the Zenfone 5 series but also mentions some key specs.
The new leak is courtesy of Evan Blass (@evleaks) and is an official render of the Zenfone 5 Lite. We actually think this is the Zenfone 5 Selfie Lite which succeeds the Zenfone 4 Selfie Lite as there is no Zenfone 4 Lite. However, we can’t be too sure ASUS hasn’t messed up the naming scheme again, so we’ll refer to it as the Zenfone 5 Lite.
The phone is shown in white, though we believe there will be other color variants. Its bezels are smaller and it doesn’t have a home button on the chin. At the top, we can make out two camera lens on opposite sides, a LED flash, earpiece, and the proximity/light sensor.
The back is also home to dual cameras stacked on top of each other and in a design that reminds us of the Honor 6X. There is a LED flash flanking the setup on the left and a fingerprint scanner beneath it. We can also make out a USB port flanked by speaker grilles on the bottom.
According to @evleaks, the Zenfone 5 Lite has a FHD+ resolution. The display size isn’t specified but we presume its between 5.7” to 5.9”.
He also states the configuration of the four cameras – 2 x 20MP selfie and 2 x 16MP rear. While this can be interpreted as 20MP + 20MP on the front and 16MP + 16MP on the rear, this sure is an overkill for a “Lite” phone. So its most likely 2MP + 20MP for the front cameras and 2MP +16MP for the rear cameras.
What do you think about the design of the Zenfone 5 Lite? Hit or miss?
