At MWC 2018 in Barcelona like so many others, ASUS officially unveiled new smartphones. The ZenFone 5 Series ups last year’s ZenFone 4 Series consisting of a flagship ZenFone 5Z as well as mid-range ZenFone 5 and ZenFone Lite (Zenfone 5Q in the US) models. All are expected to be moderately priced, though availability has not yet been confirmed for US customers. Here’s a rundown.
Late last week, ASUS held a brief event in the country of Taiwan, the location where many smartphones are manufactured. The company introduced not one nor two, but four new entrants to the ZenFone 4 family of mid-range smartphones. The lineup consists of ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone 4 Selfie, and ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro. All are expected to be moderately priced, though availability has not yet been confirmed for US customers.
