It was unveiled at MWC 2018 along with the ZenFone 5Z and ZenFone 5 Lite (ZenFone 5Q).

Price of the latest Asus smartphone, the Asus Zenfone 5 has been leaked in Taiwan.

Asus recently took the wraps off the much-awaited Zenfone 5 on February 28 at the Mobile World Congress 2018 event in Barcelona. Also, more handsets appear to be making way into the ZenFone family soon, such as the Asus ZenFone 5 Max.

Asus ZenFone 5 is reportedly set to launch in a few markets on Thursday, April 12.

For now, the leak by MyDrivers claim the phone will retail for NT$11,990 (Rs 26,774). If the report is true, that will be a high price for a smartphone being powered by Snapdragon 636 chipset as Xiaomi already launched the Redmi Note 5 Pro with the same chipset at nearly half than this rumored price.

The ZenFone 5 was announced in two RAM variants; the basic one has 4GB RAM, and the higher version features 6GB RAM. However, nothing is confirmed as of now. Additionally, it will also be available in 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, and 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

It also has to be noted that the recently launched display notch smartphones in India - the Oppo F7 (REVIEW) and Vivo V9 also pack mid-range chipsets (Mediatek Helio P60 and Snapdragon 626 chips respectively) but they are priced starting at Rs 21,990 and Rs 22,990 respectively.

Asus ZenFone 5 has a 6.2-inch full-HD+ (1080x2246 pixels) display with a 19:9 aspect ratio which makes quite taller than many phones but not as tall as iPhone X which has 19.5:9 ratio. It has Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor with Adreno 509 GPU.

Meanwhile, Asus is expected to launch the Zenfone 5 in India sometime in May this year, but the exact launch date of the device is still not known.

Now, we have got some more information to share with you about the Asus Zenfone 5 and this is regarding the pricing of the smartphone.

When it comes to cameras, the smartphone flaunts a dual camera setup at the rear with the primary camera consisting of a 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, 83-degree field of view, 24mm equivalent focal length in 35mm film camera, and a Soft-light LED flash. The device packs a 3000mAh battery with fast charging support (USB Type C port) and runs Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box with Zen UI on top. If the recent leak to be believed and we see Asus' previous record in pricing, we can expect it to be priced around Rs 25,000 in India. Apart from the fingerprint sensor, the smartphone features face unlocking as well.
