Asus has scheduled an launch event on 27 February at the Mobile World Congress and expected to be on the line-up will belong to Asus ZenFone 5 series. A fresh set of leaks suggest that the ZenFone 5 Lite will also be unveiled at the event. This handset is expected to sport four camera sensors, two on the front and two at the back. Renders suggest a vertical dual camera setup on the rear.
Reputed tipster Evan Blass has recently revealed images of the rumoured ZenFone 5 Lite through his Twitter handle. As per the leaked images, the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite will sport a vertical dual camera module on the back of the phone as well as two selfie cameras on the front. The phone also appears to have a front-facing flash, alongside a dual-LED flash module on the rear. And, lastly, the rear camera setup is expected to have a 120-degree wide-angle lens. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the renders.
Separately, Evan Blass also posted that the phone would be made available in 3 colour variants - Midnight Black, Moonlight White, and Rouge Red. The ZenFone 5 Lite is tipped to sport a full-HD+ display with the resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels with an 18:9 aspect ratio. As per Blass, the phone will be called as Asus Zenfone 5 Lite. It will have two 20 megapixel selfie cameras and two 16 MP FHD+ rear cameras, he tweeted.
Interestingly enough, Asus Marketing Executive Marcel Campos posted a photo of an unannounced phone on his personal Instagram account. The phone does not look like any other handset in the ZenFone series, leading us to believe that this could be the upcoming ZenFone 5 Lite considering it appears to have a vertical dual camera setup on the back and the same fingerprint sensor placement. It seems to have a metal body with glass finishing with no sight of a 3.5mm headphone jack at least on the bottom. However, this is just speculation, and we will get a clearer picture closer to the launch.
Asus recently sent out invites for its MWC 2018 keynote that will be held at 7:30pm CET on February 27 (12am IST, February 28). We can expect the ZenFone 5 Lite and ZenFone 5 Max to make an appearance, apart from other products by Asus.
