The Asus ZenFone 5Z is one hell of a flagship phone and it ain’t available in India. However, if today’s teaser from Flipkart is to be believed, we’re going to see the handset launch as early as tomorrow exclusively on the platform. Asus has been quite late with the launch here in India as the handset is available in a number of European countries.
What makes the ZenFone 5Z very interesting is its price in Europe. It is currently the most affordable Snapdragon 845 phone even beating OnePlus, even though it’s by a slim margin. Since Flipkart is teasing a flagship, we can count both the ZenFone Max Pro M1 and the ZenFone 5 out of the race, since both have a Snapdragon 636 chipset. Flipkart’s teaser displays an 8:30 PM time for the launch.
The ZenFone 5Z is every bit a flagship with its 6.2-inch Full-HD+ display and premium glass-sandwiched metal body. It sports a dual camera combo of 12MP + 8MP sensors that support both 4K videos and PDAF. The primary sensor on the back has a f/1.8 aperture and the secondary lens has a f/2.0 aperture.
The ZenFone 5Z has both 6GB and 8GB variants. The lowest base variant with 64GB storage costs €520 in Europe. That’s the same as the OnePlus 6 but offers on tax rebates gets you €20 off, so you end up paying less. However, this is a limited time offer. Let’s see if this will be the pricing in India as well.
