ASUS ZenFone 5 Lite Certification Revealed in Latest Leak

ZenFone Max Plus M1

The next ZenFone series seems to be closer than we have expected. Asus plans to shorten the time span between new releases.

According to Asus' CEO Jerry Shen, we should expect the first ZenFone 5 smartphones to be unveiled as early as March. However, it's unclear whether they will be announced at MWC (Mobile World Congress).

It looks like the Asus ZenFone 5 series is almost ready for prime time since the first device has just been certified in Russia. The Asus ZenFone 5 Lite is probably a mid-range handset that will pack a 6-inch display and a Qualcomm chipset.


Apparently, the letters and numbers in the phone's model number (ZC600KL) refer to some of its specs. The letters “KL” are meant to confirm the ZenFone 5 Lite is equipped with a Qualcomm processor and that it includes LTE support, and "ZC" refers to ZenFone Max model.

Also, the number “600” in the model number might suggest the phone sports a large 6.0-inch display. It remains to be seen if the display will feature an 18:9 aspect ratio or not. That's about all we know about the first ZenFone 5 series smartphones that appeared online, but we believe more information on other devices should pop up sooner rather than later.

The world’s first commercial smartphone to feature Gigabit LTE and 802.11ad multi-gigabit Wi-Fi technologies, delivering ultra-fast virtually seamless gigabit connectivity indoors and on the go.

Integrated into the Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform, the Snapdragon X16 Gigabit LTE modem gives the ZenFone 4 Pro the ability to execute blazing-fast download speeds over 4G LTE, on a compatible LTE network, and superior signal quality with Qualcomm® TruSignal™ dual-antenna technology for extended coverage. Qualcomm Technologies’ 11ad Wi-Fi allows users to download and share 4k videos in seconds, sync their photos, videos and other files with blazing speed, and enjoy fast access to cloud services. Moreover, when users connect other devices, such as laptops, with the phone’s Wi-Fi hotspot feature the Snapdragon mobile platform is designed to provide end-to-end gigabit wireless connectivity with 802.11ad access and Gigabit LTE backhaul, on a compatible network, even in crowded places such as airports. Like the upcoming 5G NR standard, 11ad utilizes the mmWave spectrum – in this case, the 60 GHz band— tapping into a massive amount of data-carrying capacity that complements existing cellular and Wi-Fi networks. Additionally, ZenFone 4 Pro users will enjoy robust Wi-Fi connectivity using Qualcomm Technologies’ integrated 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO technology, which offers twice as much throughput as 1x1 Wi-Fi and improved coverage, especially in buildings with brick or concrete walls.


In addition to unprecedented gigabit connectivity, the Asus ZenFone 4 Pro takes advantage of the integrated Qualcomm Spectra™ 180 Image Signal Processor (ISP) offering dual 14-bit image signal processing and features the latest generation of Qualcomm® Adreno™ 540 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), accelerating the smartphone’s enhanced imaging experience and allowing users to enjoy a 360-degree immersive visual capture experience.

ASUS to launch next-generation ZenFone 5 in March 2018


Asustek CEO Jerry Shen poses with Qualcomm executive vice president Christiano Amon

Asustek Computer will release its next-generation ZenFone 5 family products at the earliest in March 2018 as the operations of its smartphone business have returned to a growth truck as a result of recent restructuring, according to company CEO Jerry Shen.

Shen is currently leading a trade mission to promote the company's ZenFone 4 in Europe.

Sales of Asustek's ZenFone 3 devices have been gaining momentum in France, Italy, Spain and Russia, and the sales momentum is expected to continue on ZenFone 4 products as the company is expanding its cooperation with telecom operators in the region, Shen added.

Thanks to improving operating efficiency and rising ASP of ZenFone 4, Asustek's smartphone business is expected to swing back to profitability in the fourth quarter of 2017, Shen said, adding that by the third quarter of 2018 Asustek is likely to be one of the profitable seven smartphone vendors globally, Shen stressed.

Meanwhile, Shen said that HTC's decision to sell its Pixel team to Google will not have a significant impact on Asustek's smartphone business as Asustek and Google have been cooperating closely and Google's Pixel smartphones are targeting the high-end segment compared to Asustek's focus on the entry-level to mid-tier sector.
