ASUS ZenFone 5 Lite: Specs, Release date and more

ZenFone 5 Lite

Just like rumors had predicted, Asus unveiled a trio of ZenFone 5 phones at the MWC 2018. We’ve already covered two of them, but this post is for the third variant – the ZenFone 5 Lite. Unlike the other ZenFone 5 handsets, the 5 Lite has no notch, instead, it gets a quad-lens camera setup, which is a feature you won’t easily bump into.

As the name suggests, the ZenFone 5 Lite is the entry-level variant in the group, but there’s nothing entry-level about the phone’s specs, as you can see below.

ZenFone 5 Lite specs and features

  • Front/back glass and aluminum frame
  • 6-inch 18:9 LCD IPS display with full HD+ resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 or Snapdragon 430 chipset
  • 3/4GB RAM and 32/64GB of expandable storage (up to 400GB)
  • Android 8.0 Oreo with ZenUI 5.0
  • Dual 16MP (f/2.2, PDAF) + XMP (120-degree wide-angle lens), EIS, PDAF, LED flash and 4K video recording (SDM630 variant only); and a dual 20MP (f/2.0) + XMP (120-degree wide-angle lens), EIS, LED flash
  • 3300mAh battery
  • Bluetooth 4.1, 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB, rear-mounted scanner

You can grab the ZenFone 5 Lite in any of Midnight Black, Moonlight White and Rouge Red.

ZenFone 5 Lite price and release date

Speaking of grabbing the ZenFone 5 Lite, Asus hasn’t provided any price or availability details of the phone. However, our guess is that it will start selling alongside the ZenFone 5 and 5Z somewhere in April.

Since the flagship ZenFone 5Z has a price tag of $499 for the base model, it’s likely that the ZenFone 5 Lite will be priced somewhere between $200 and $300, which should be a pretty competitive pricing. Of course, we’ll update this post when Asus confirms the price and availability of the phone.
