Asus Zenfone 5 Preview (Pre-Production) – All Notched Up

February 28 03:15 2018 Print This Article

If you’re reading this, then the Asus Zenfone 5 has already been announced at WMC. That means you either know about the new phone, or not. But that’s fine, you can get a refresher or learn all about the new device here. This year, Asus is going with a full-display design type of deal with a 19:9 ratio dealio and a notch very similar to the iPhone X. That might be a divisive decision by the Taiwanese brand, given that some people don’t like the notch, and others don’t like the fact that the design is cribbed from Apple. Either way though, we think its a great look for the new Zenfone. Check out our preview video on a pre-production unit on the video embedded above, or read more on it’s specs below!
