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.

But our favorite is the Nokia 7 Plus, a near-borderless Android One phone with Zeiss optics and a beautiful build.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Review
Are these new features worth the price increase?
In our Samsung Galaxy S9 Review video, we hope to answer questions you may have to help you make an informed decision before buying the phone.
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.
