Asus Confirms its Presence at MWC 2018, Might Unveil Zenfone 5 Series on February 27th

Back in September 2017, Asus revealed plans to launch their Zenfone 5 series in Q1 2018, and now we have an official announcement date. Companies like Samsung, HMD Global (license holder for Nokia brand), Sony and Xiaomi are expected to unveil their new offerings at the upcoming MWC in February in Barcelona.

The Taiwanese tech giant has reportedly sent the media invites for its conference at MWC 2018.

The ASUS event is taking place on 27 February which is Day 2 of MWC 2018. Rumors suggest we might see three different devices: Zenfone 5, Zenfone 5 Max and Zenfone 5 Lite. Nearly all the smartphones under the Zenfone 4 series came with dual cameras, and the company might continue the same with the upcoming Zenfone 5 smartphones. The Zenfone 5 series devices will be hitting the shelves as early as March/April this year.

As noted in the invite, the event will kick off at 19:30 CET and will be live-streamed.

But this is not the whole story , the intention is to also invest, promote and research in blockchain technology. The cryptocurrency will be incorporated into the existing LINE in-app mobile payment service.

Word has it that ASUS could be launching two models - the ZenFone 5 Max and ZenFone 5 Lite.

The Asus ZenFone 5 Lite, on the other hand, was certified in Russian Federation.

This #BackTo5 hashtag could mean anything from 5000 mAh batteries in each ZenFone, 5 colours, 5 different ZenFone models or even 5 glass layer displays or backsides. It has a 5.5-inch screen with 720x1280 pixels (267 ppi pixel density), Android 7.0 Nougat OS, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage expandable up to 256GB via microSD card, a dual 13MP (f/2.0, 12mm) + 13MP (f/2.0, 25mm) main camera, and an 8MP front-snapper with f/2.2 aperture, 24mm lens and LED flash.
