Just a bit ago at Mobile World Congress 2018, Asus announced three flavors of Zenfone 5: the Zenfone 5 Lite, the standard Zenfone 5, and the flagship Zenfone 5Z.

There is no escaping the fact the Asus Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5Z both look like the iPhone X. The notch, the screen and the camera placement all scream of Apple's handset, but if you want a device that looks like that and runs Android this may suit.

The ZenFone 5Z uses a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of storage, while the 5 uses the Snapdragon 636 and has up to 6GB of RAM.

The all new Asus ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Z come with 6.2-inch Full HD+ IPS display which is protected by a front and rear 2.5D curved glass.

Revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the ZenFone 5 is a slick Qualcomm Snapdragon 636-powered, 6.2-inch handset that will be released in the United Kingdom in "Q3" - so expect it in the late Summer.

Powered by the Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform, ZenFone 5 Lite comes equipped with a 3300mAh battery and offers features like NFC, triple-slot SIM/microSD card holder, rapid face unlock and fingerprint recognition.

Asus has chose to go with a dual SIM and microSD card slot for the phone and has placed a 20MP Sony IMX 376 sensor coupled with a 120-degree wide-angle lens and the front comes with a 16MP sensor and a 120 degrees wide-angle camera as well.

The smartphone also features face unlock, which Asus says can unlock a device within 0.1 seconds. Exact pricing details are now up in the air too, so we can't judge the Zenfone 5 too much yet. That's pretty incredible for what you get. Much like the ZenFone 5Z, the new ZenFone 5 comes in two variants - Midnight Blue and Meteor Silver. The smartphone comes with 4GB/6GB RAM variants with 64GB of internal storage only. The front and back are covered with curved glass, which has an nearly velvety coating, and you won't have to worry as much about getting your smartphone dirty with fingerprints, as this material is less susceptible to this than most glass smartphones.

The Signature Pro Type Cover is available for Rs 12,999, the Surface Ark mouse for Rs 6,399 and the Surface Pen for Rs7,999 only. Unveiled previous year , the Surface Pro will be available for purchase in offline as well as online retail.

Dual-lens combining 12-megapixel f1.8 Sony 363, 6 element lens with secondary 8-megapixel f2.0 wide angle rear. The smartphone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with the company's ZenUI 5.0 skin on top.

Asus delivers the two ZenFones with Android 8 Oreo and its own Zen UI. There are 3 versions of the Asus Zenfone 5. At the rear, there is a horizontally-aligned dual rear camera setup on the top left corner and a circular fingerprint scanner which is positioned towards the center. Talking about the cameras, there are total four camera sensors on this device. A 3,300mAh non-removable battery is included inside of this smartphone and it is boosted by the ASUS BoostMaster and AI charging, says the company. The body of the Zenfone 5 Lite is built of aluminium which makes it both light as well as durable. For selfies, there is an 8-megapixel resolution, with an f/2.0 aperture, 84-degree field of view, and a 24mm equivalent focal length in a 35mm film camera.

Also at MWC, Samsung showcased prototypes from its Creative Lab, including wearable cameras, sticky note printers and helmet communication devices.
