So will the ZenFone 5Q or ZenFone 5 Lite, depending on your locale. And as for the ZenFone 5? Well, it's a bit more vague than "end of January."
On paper, the Flipkart-exclusive Asus ZenFone 5Z looks like it could give the OnePlus 6 a healthy run for its money in India.
The affordable ZenFone 5Q has been available in the US for a little while, and now the slightly pricier Asus ZenFone 5 ZE620KL is up for UK pre-orders.
Up for pre-order for a couple of weeks on Amazon, the Asus ZenFone 5Q is listed there as out of stock, but two other US retailers are shipping it now.
With no iPhone X-inspired screen cutout, the upper mid-range Asus ZenFone 5Q still achieves some remarkably thin bezels, fetching a very reasonable $299 on pre-order stateside.
For comparison, that smartphone camera review score matches the original Google Pixel of 2016 and last year's HTC U11, but misses out on a wide-angle camera.
The as-yet-unannounced Asus ZenFone 5 Max is shaping up to be a respectable upper mid-range Android affair, based on a recent Geekbench visit.
The show's over, but for many of these smartphones, it's the beginning of the road to commercialization. We have an all-star group to talk Galaxy S9, ASUS ZenFone 5 and more in this show from Barcelona!
This is our complete MWC 2018 recap, jam-packed with exclusive hands-on coverage of the most exciting new mobile products unveiled in Barcelona this year.
The ZenFone 5 Lite, aka 5Q, is the only one of three new handsets unveiled by Asus at MWC 2018 that snubs the notch trend. It also has a grand total of four cameras. Not too shabby.
Here they are, ladies and gents - the "full screen" Asus ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Z with iPhone X-inspired notch designs. Also, a weirdly more sensible ZenFone 5Q, aka ZenFone 5 Lite.
One of no doubt many Asus ZenFone 5 models in the pipeline is seemingly powered by a state-of-the-art Snapdragon 845 processor, most likely also sporting a "notch."
One of these companies has been taken to the wringer by the US government and itself. The other loses an executive, a sad yearly tradition. We discuss both on our show!
This is your ultimate preview guide for MWC 2018, the Barcelona-hosted trade fair that will see a whole bunch of exciting new smartphones debut in a little over a week.
While the Asus ZenFone 5 Lite is expected to feature two cameras on the front and two on the back, the "regular" ZenFone 5 aims to stand out with an iPhone X-"borrowed" notch.
Several Asus ZenFone 5 devices will go #Backto5 on February 27 at Barcelona's 2018 Mobile World Congress, the company has officially unveiled.
This is as the ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 4 series continue to expand around the world at this moment. Anyone getting confused?
