Taiwanese smartphone maker ASUS has launched a new red-coloured variant of the Zenfone 5Q in Taiwan. ASUS Zenfone 5Q was first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 alongside the Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5Z. The midrange smartphone was available in Starry Black and Moonlight White and both have since gone on sale. The addition of this new colour option is apparently to rejig sales.
ASUS ZenFone 5Q Red Edition is only different from the black and white variant in its colour but is fitted with a similar software and hardware configuration as both variants. The Zenfone 5 Red Edition will go on sale on May 11, just two days before Mother’s day. The Red edition looks really sexy in pictures and is well suited for female folks. The device comes with a price tag of NT$9990 (~$333) which is nearly the same price with the Black/white variants which have a RRP of NT$9,900 (~$330).
As a reminder, the Zenfone 5Q packs a 6-inch full-screen display with an FHD+ resolution as well as an 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and there is 64GB of expandable storage onboard.
The device equally comes with dual cameras at the front and back. The dual front-facing cameras include a 20-megapixel Sony IMX376 main sensor that offers an 85.5-degree field of view. The secondary sensor that accompanies it offers a 120-degree field of view. The dual rear cameras of the ZenFone 5Q consist of a 16-megapixel primary sensor with an 80-degree field of view and the same secondary sensor that resides at the front. The handset gets its juice from a 3,300mAH battery and proving the interface is a ZenUI 5.0-flavored Android 8.0 Oreo OS. Other features of the Zenfone 5Q include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, facial recognition, micro USB, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi and dual-SIM support.
