After the delayed launch of the Asus ZenFone 4 last year by a couple of months, ASUS CEO, Jerry Shen in an interview last year, had confirmed that the company will launch its next smartphone from the ZenFone 5 series by March this year. Staying true to their words, the company is all set to launch its next mid-range smartphone, the Asus ZenFone 5 Lite.
Asus ZenFone 5 Lite which will be the first smartphone from the 5 series was found certified on a Russian website. According to the certification, the smartphone will bear a model number ZC600KL. Wherein the KL means that the smartphone will be fueled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with support for LTE connectivity.
The certification also displays the number 60 on the model. The number could be an indication that the upcoming Asus smartphone could sport a 6-inch screen. However, if the Asus ZenFone 5 Lite will come with an aspect ratio of 18:9 is still not known.
Besides these details, all the other specifications on the Asus ZenFone 5 Lite have been kept in an air of mystery. Additionally, there is no confirmation if the company will announce its smartphone from the new series at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) or hold a separate event for the announcement.
Before this, the company had announced the Asus ZenFone Max Plus. It is the first phone by the company to feature the latest 18:9 aspect ratio display. The smartphone was showcased at the recent CES 2018 event. The Asus ZenFone Max Plus will sport a 5.7-inch full-screen display along with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and a 2.5D curved glass.
The phone will be fuelled by a MediaTek MT6750T octa-core processor. Furthermore, it will come with two storage variants. One with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and the second with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
