ASUS, the brand that has been popular worldwide for their wide variety of products including laptops, smartphones, optical storage, graphics cards, motherboards and many more. With all these product lineups and great value for money products, ASUS has a great track record all across the globe that most of us tech geeks drool upon and can do nothing but wish for them.
If you’re one of them too, here’s the good news. ASUS is finally about to hit the Nepalese market in the early 2019 and is debuting with five of their products to start with. While other items still remain a mystery, the confirmed one is the ASUS ZenFone 5Z. I’m sure most of you might have already heard about the Zenfone 5Z as it was alliterated as the OnePlus killer. If not, here’s what the ASUS ZenFone 5Z brings along.
The ASUS Zenfone 5Z brings a premium looking glass sandwich design and boasts a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display with a notch and a resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels translating to 18.7:9 aspect ratio and a screen to body ratio of 83.6% that looks modern. That might sound you like every other smartphone in 2018 but that’s not the key feature of this device. The differentiating factor of this device is the Snapdragon 845 SoC underneath the hood that powers the device.
So what sets it apart from the OnePlus 6T? The answer is the pricing. Coming in with three different variants, starting with a 6GB+64GB variant priced at INR. 29,999, 6GB+128GB variant is priced at INR 32,999 and the top of the line 8GB+256GB variant priced at INR. 36,999 which is much lesser than what the OnePlus 6 and the 6T were priced at (8GB+256GB variant of the OnePlus 6T would run you INR. 45,999). The Zenfone 5Z comes with a decently sized 3,300mAh battery. It runs on ZenUI 5.0 which is ASUS’s custom skin built on top of Android 8.0 Oreo.
No, there’s more to the ZenFone 5Z than just the flagship Snapdragon 845 SoC on board. Bluetooth 5.0, support for 18Watt fast charging, stereo speakers, USB Type-C, NFC and even the 3.5 mm headphone jack is present.
What about the cameras?
On the optics front, the ZenFone 5Z houses a dual 12MP f/1.8 + 8MP f/2.0 cameras to the back which is capable of recording 4K videos at 30fps. Over at the front is the 8MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture and 24mm wide angle lens.
Pricing is supposed to be somewhere in the neighborhood of the Indian market pricing which makes the ZenFone 5Z a deal to look forward to.
