The Asus Zenfone 5 Lite was among the phones that was introduced by the brand during their press conference at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. The phone is an entry-level model in the Zenfone 5 family. I had earlier discussed about the Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5z, so this time we shall be looking at the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite specifications, price, features and more.
Asus Zenfone 5 Lite Features
The Asus Zenfone 5 Lite has four cameras, two of them with a 120-degree wide-angle field-of-view, one on each side. The main rear camera has 16MP sensor, f/2.2 aperture with phase detection autofocus and 80-degree field-of-view. The main selfie snapper has a 20MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture, part using the Sony IMX376 sensor and boasting an 85.5-degree field-of-view.
The Asus Zenfone 5 Lite also came with a 6 inch 2160 x 1080 display, and an 80.3% screen-to-body ratio, which is still cool for a “lite” version. You can buy the Zenfone 5 Lite with either Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, or the Snapdragon 630, all depending on your choice. The later variant gives you the option to record 4K videos with your main rear camera, and you also get support for 5GHz Wi-Fi band, whereas that of the SD430 limits you to 1080p and 2.4GHz.
The RAM/Storage options available for the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite are 3GB/32GB or 4GB/64GB. The phone has a dual SIM and also an extra microSD slot for expanding your internal storage. You will also find a fingerprint scanner located at the back of the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite.
The Asus Zenfone 5 Lite also came with a 3300mAh battery that charges via microUSB, NFC, FM radio, and 2.5D curved glass both on the front and c=back of the device. The phone runs on Android Oreo with Asus ZenUI 5.0 on top, and it will be available in Moonlight White, Rouge Red, and Midnight Black.
