ASUS is launching its new dual-camera smartphone lineup at MWC 2018

Asus Confirms its Presence at MWC 2018, Might Unveil Zenfone 5 Series on February 27th

Earlier this month, Asus the to the U.S. as its newest ZenFone Max entrant.

This #BackTo5 hashtag could mean anything from 5000 mAh batteries in each ZenFone, 5 colours, 5 different ZenFone models or even 5 glass layer displays or backsides. The launch event will take place at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona where we can expect the smartphones to be showcased throughout the entire exhibition.

The event will be held on February 27th at 7:30 pm CET, i.e., 12 am IST on February 28th.

The ZE520KL and ZE552KL couldn't even be deemed high-end devices back in 2016, when they first saw daylight, running Android 6.0 Marshmallow out the box in combination with a middling Snapdragon 625 processor. Those who can't make it to Barcelona will be able to watch the press event live on the company's website. The "we love photo" words also suggest that we might see a better camera on the new Zenfone 5. As usual, Asus will launch a plethora of new devices under the Zenfone 5 lineup.

The new phones are arriving just five months after the Zenfone 4 versions hit the market.

Asus ZenFone 5 Max with model code ASUS_X00QD has received Wi-Fi Alliance certification.

The Zenfone 5 Max will be the successor to last year's Zenfone 4 Max. The Zenfone 5 will follow in similar footsteps, arriving with a massive battery and may carry a almost bezel-less display keeping with industry trends. More details on Asus' upcoming phones can be expected as the release date nears.
