Original Article

Asus launched its Zenfone 5 devices a while ago. While the devices have made their way around Asia and Europe, only the Zenfone 5 Lite has made it to the US, with it being rebranded as the Zenfone 5Q for the market. Apparently, yet another smartphone in the lineup is coming to the US, and on August 13.

The Asus Zenfone 5Z is Asus’ top of the line device and comes with all the bells and whistles one would expect from a flagship. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 845, and features 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a 12 MP + 8 MP rear camera setup, a 3300 mAh battery, and a notched 6.2-inch FHD+ display.

The Zenfone 5Z is currently on pre-order and will set buyers back US$499, which is as much value as one can possibly get from a smartphone right now. The only mainstream current-gen flagships that pose a threat to that stake are the Huawei Mate 10 Pro and OnePlus 6. Of course, there’s also the Honor View 10—which is admittedly cheaper—but it’s a worse device by most metrics.
