Before announcing the ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Z, ASUS also announced a lighter version for their new smartphone series aptly called the ZenFone 5 Lite at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The ZenFone 5 Lite may be called “Lite” but it’s actually a stylish 6-inch Full HD+ smartphone with an 18:9 display. ASUS is proud to leverage the phone as the “world’s first globally announced true quad-camera system” which means the phone will be available in many parts of the globe.
The main feature of the phone is its four cameras — two in front, two at the back. The device is promoted as a selfie phone with its 20-megapixel Sony IMX376 front-camera paired with a secondary wide-angle lens for group selfie shots. As for the rear, it has a 16-megapixel shooter which is also accompanied by a wide-angle secondary camera.
Something we rarely see on smartphones in this segment, the ZenFone 5 Lite also features beautiful glass panels on both the front and back — this time without ASUS’ signature concentric circle design.
Powered by either a Snapdragon 430 or Snapdragon 630, the ZenFone 5 Lite does not share the same AI features its big brothers have. Battery capacity for both variants is at a sizeable 3300mAh.
We have yet to obtain pricing information on the ZenFone 5 Lite, but it will start rolling out this coming March. It will come in Moonlight White, Midnight Black, and our favorite Rouge Red.

Is Dual Aperture a gimmick? How good is the S9’s camera? S9 or S9+? Is it even worth it?
YouTubers React to the Samsung Galaxy S9
Do they look like their AR Emoji?
A new color, internal camera upgrades, and a few minor changes here and there don’t necessarily make the S9 look or feel new.
But is retaining the same beautiful, sleek design such a bad thing? Are the subtle improvements worth the high price tag? Is AR Emoji a gimmick?
YouTubers Mrwhosetheboss, Joshua Vergara, GadgetsBoy, GadgetsJon, The Tech Chap, David Imel, PC Centric, and Isa Rodriguez tell us what they think about the the Samsung Galaxy S9.
