The second smartphone from Asus under the Zenfone 5 series is Asus Zenfone 5z.

Like the previous Zenfone Max models, these new phones represent the company's transition into bezel-less designs, but the thing about them is not only are they bezel-less, they also have huge aspect ratio displays.

Asus ZenFone 5Z is company's Flagship smartphone for this year which has got a series of extraordinary features. Similarly, Asus has not revealed the pricing of the Asus ZenFone 5 and Asus ZenFone 5 Lite.

The Zenfone 5 and 5Z include a 6.2 inch display and have the same reflective casing as found on the the Zenfone 4. The images spotted in the manufacturers manual shows dual-camera module on the device. Oddly ASUS has not yet given MP size on the second of each of these camera combinations.

Asus has not yet confirmed an India launch date for both phones. The secondary camera s of 8-megapixel with 120-degree wide angle lens.

Truce called in trade war between BC and Alberta
Asked if the reference to the courts should be read as a sign B.C.is backing down, Horgan said "not at all". In Alberta, meanwhile, 82% supported the province's position compared to 18 percent siding with B.C.

The smartphone comes with face unlock, USB Type C and it is powered by a 3300 mAh battery. The variant that's going to be released in the United States will be branded as the Zenfone 5Q and will feature the Snapdragon 630 chip.

And it's sad because these phones are packed full of the specs you might want, they feature some gimmicky-yet-kind-of-cool software features, beefed up audio goodies, and really, really nice price points. Let's take a look at the specifications of all the three smartphones and the price and availability.

Asus has unveiled a trio of new ZenFone 5 handsets, promising that at least two will arrive in the United Kingdom this year.

■ The standout element in the ZenFone 5Z is the bezels-less screen with a thin strip at the top for the front camera. It has an improved Adreno 509 GPU for better graphical performance. In terms of storage, the lower RAM variant will come with 32GB of storage while the latter will have 64GB.

Talking about the design, Asus Zenfone Max Plus (M1) features a metal unibody design.

BJP aims for workable majority in Rajya Sabha
While 10 seats from Uttar Pradesh will be vacated, Maharashtra and Bihar will witness elections for six seats each. An addition of 15 to 20 seats of the 58 seats which go to poll on March 23 may take the NDA tally above 100.

To wrap up, we should also highlight the ZenFone 5 and 5Z offer stereo speakers with individual amps and other super-premium enhancements.

The new Asus ZenFone 5 Lite smartphone sports a 6 Inch full HD+ IPS display with 1080×2160 pixels of Screen Resolution.

Asus ZenFone 5Z is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 processor, while ZenFone 5 runs Snapdragon 636 chipset under its hood. It is also likely to run a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC under the hood. The ZenFone 5, ZenFone 5Z and also the ZenFone Z Lite comes packed with dual cameras at the back (12MP + 8MP) and a single 8MP sensor on the front. The device will sport a dedicated microSD card slot. The secondary camera on both devices backs is a 120-degree wide-angle camera. They also didn't hesitate in mimicking the back of the iPhone X either, by precisely placing their dual camera setup in a vertical alignment at the top left corner.

This phone uses a quad-cam setup with two front-facing sensors and two rear-facing selfie shooters. The camera and other apps were quick and responsive, and it took excellent pictures - albeit not quite as good as the ZenFone 5. The camera can record in 4K UHD resolution and has three axis electronic image stabilization to make the videos better. It supports dual SIM dual standby and comes with basic connectivity options. Asus has swapped the sensors out for Sony's newer IMX363 this time around, and added dual-pixel PDAF for quicker focusing. Also, the Zenmoji doesn't work on current devices. It is expected to arrive in color options of Midnight Black, Moonlight White, and Rouge Red. This is the reason why it feels surprisingly light (155g) for a big screen smartphone.
