ASUS will be unveiling the ZenFone Max Pro M1 which appears to be the successor to its current ZenFone Max Plus M1. It gets a larger 6” display in an 18:9 aspect ratio and it packs pretty decent hardware that could challenge Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5.
If you don’t like ASUS ZenFone for its UI and “bloatware”, you might just change your mind with this upcoming mid-range smartphone.
While the ASUS ROG Zephyrus was definitely a showstopper last year, it wasn’t exactly the best “laptop” primarily because the track pad was in such a weird position. Then again, this isn’t something that was uniquely ASUS’ problem.
Sure, you could get used to it, or use a mouse. But what if you didn’t want that. Well, for those, you’ve got the ROG Zephyrus M (GM501). It’s a laptop that keeps a lot of what’s good with the Zephyrus but in a form that makes sense.
Just recently, ASUS had introduced its new ZenFone 5 series at MWC 2018. The Taiwanese smartphone maker is calling it the most intelligent smartphone they have ever made and the exterior looks heavily inspired by the iPhone X.
If you’ve been looking forward to this device, you won’t have to wait too long as ASUS Malaysia has teased that it’s coming to our shores very soon.
If you’re looking for an affordable dual-camera smartphone that has a huge battery, the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max Pro is getting a significant price cut in Malaysia. Announced in August last year, the ZenFone 4 Max Pro was released in Malaysia at RM1,099 and it can be yours today at almost 50% off.
I think something that a lot of people forget is that in technology, it’s not about who does it first, it’s about who does it best. Google wasn’t the first search engine, Apple wasn’t the first company to come up with a “smartphone”, and Facebook wasn’t the first social media network.
Being the first to bring something into the market is severely overrated and it looks like ASUS has realised that too. With its brand new smartphone — the ZenFone 5 — the company looks like it’s ditching all attempts at being first, or even original. Instead, they focused on borrowing the good bits from several of the top smartphone makers, tweaking them (in some cases, improving upon them), then combining all of it into a smartphone.
Sure, you could say that they’re just blatantly copying their competition’s homework, but I think it’s a stroke of genius and here’s why.
Asus kicked off its year with a big party at Mobile World Congress 2018 announcing three new phones, the ZenFone Lite, the ZenFone 5 and the flagship ZenFone 5Z. We’ll talk about the ZenFone Lite in a later post, for now I want to concentrate on the two more interesting models – the ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5z.
The ZenFone 5 is the most intelligent smartphone Asus has ever made, or so they claim. The device was introduced with a range of what Asus claim is AI technology enhancing seven key performance aspects of the device – AI Display, AI Camera, AI Ringtone, AI Gallery, AI Charging, AI Boost, AI Photo Learning.
Before we go into details on the what these AI enhancements do, let’s talk about the specs of the ZenFone 5.
ASUS is unveiling its new ZenFone 5 series next week during Mobile World Congress 2018. Serial leakster @evleaks had earlier shared a couple of renders that is alleged to be the ZenFone 5 Lite that comes with a total of four cameras. Prior to that, we’ve seen a couple of renders that feature an iPhone X-style camera bump which is alleged to be the standard ZenFone 5 model. Now here’s another device which claims to be the ZenFone 5 and it comes with another iPhone X design feature.
ASUS will be announcing its new ZenFone 5 series at MWC 2018. With just 16 days to go, serial leakster @evleaks has dropped a couple of images of ZenFone 5 Lite and it looks like a challenger to Huawei’s Nova 2i.
ASUS will be announcing its new ZenFone 5 (2018) lineup at Barcelona at the end of this month. If you want to know how it looks like, the manual for one of its models has apparently leaked and it gives a clear illustration of all sides of the device.
