The Asus Zenfone 5 has multiple flavors, but they are yet to launch in the US and this wont change quickly. The Asus Zenfone 5 Lite ZC600KL is now up on Amazon for pre-order under the name Zenfone 5Q. The price is set at $300 and stock is expected to be available on July 31 two months from now.
At least its the Snapdragon 630 version, which features 4K at 30 fps video recording and better charging (not fast by any measure, it does 10W). So, its not perfect, but theres plenty to like about the phone.
For one, it doesnt have a notch unlike the other two models. It features a rectangular 6 display with 1,080 x 2,160 px resolution. You can check out our hands-on for more details and do pay special attention to the camera department.
It boasts a secondary 120° wide-angle camera on both the front and back. The main camera on the back is a 16 MP shooter with 80° f/2.2 lens, the one on the front is 20 MP 85.5°. Both front and back cameras have LED flashes.
If that sounds like something you like, you can find the phone on Amazon US. But again, if you pre-order now, youd still be in for quite a wait.
