By now, everyone is aware of the fact that there’s not just one but two new Zenfone hitting the shores. One is the highly anticipated Zenfone Max Pro M1 and the other one being Zenfone 5, which is their very own flagship grade smartphone.
Leaked Pricing – Lazada
While the launch is super close, literally like 2 days away – nothing is going to stop Lazada from leaking the price tag. By the time we checked Lazada, the link was taken down but good thing – one of our friends, Vernonchan.com actually posted a screenshot of the Lazada page where the phone was listed for RM 1299 for the Midnight Blue version. There is another color in the market and that’s the Meteor Silver. We have no idea whether it will be available along side with the Midnight Blue but do make sure to like us on Facebook to know more about this as the time comes.
As for the specification, the Asus Zenfone 5 runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 with 4GB RAM and 64GB Internal Storage. As for the display, it packs a 6.2” FHD+ Super IPS+ Display with that sharp and crisp viewing. One of the key highlight with the Zenfone 5 happens to be the camera. The 5 has a dual camera setup going on – where the primary sensor is a 12MP Sony IMX363 sensor with an aperture of f/1.8. As for the secondary sensor, it has an 8MP Wide Angle OmniVision Sensor with an aperture of f/2.0.
