ASUS ZenFone 5Z
ASUS has announced that the brand’s flagship ASUS ZenFone 5Z is now available in Spain , a terminal that features powerful hardware with up to 8 GB of RAM and a dual camera system assisted by AI.
The ZenFone 5Z was presented during the last Mobile World Congress in Barcelona as the highest-end model of ASUS for this 2018 . At design level we find a smartphone that, except the notch, a thin edge and a thin frame at the bottom, dedicates all the space from the front to the screen, specifically 90% of the surface. The panel has a size of 6.2 inches and is embedded in dimensions typical of a 5.5-inch terminal.
In the back, the double camera system is located in the upper left corner, while the fingerprint reader is centered in the upper third of the smartphone. The chassis is covered with glass and overall design reminiscent of the iPhone X .
Inside the ZenFone 5Z we found a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, accompanied by up to 8 GB of RAMand 256 GB of internal storage. In addition, it has the AI capabilities of Qualcomm Artificial Intelligence Engine (AIE), and its performance is fluid, fast and efficient. The operating system is Android Oreo with the customization layer of the manufacturer ASUS ZenUI 5.0.
The photographic section consists of a double main camera system. The primary camera has a top sensor Sony IMX363 f / 1.8 range and a secondary camera of 120 degrees, which offers a field of vision twice the size of conventional cameras.
The AI capabilities allow the camera system to learn, adapt and improve the photos continuously. The front camera has an 8 MP sensor, an aperture of f / 2.0 and a visual field of 84 degrees.
