ASUS ZenFone images have been leaked online again and this had occurred just a few days prior to the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. The probable images of this ZenFone flagship have apparently featured an iPhone X– like notch and in probability is expected to debut alongside the ZenFone 5 Lite at the MWC conference that is scheduled for February 27.
This initial rendition has been leaked by WinFuture.de. This suggests the presence of a thin-bezel display on the upcoming ZenFone handset sporting a notch on the top. While this notch is similar to the one featured on the iPhone X from last year, it is reported to include just a front-facing camera sensor, an earpiece, and a sensor module with an ambient and proximity sensors. This means this is nothing when compared to the TrueDepth camera system that was debuted to on the newest iPhone model in September last year to enable facial recognition features, including Face ID. Furthermore, the display panel is touted to have 18:9 aspect ratio with full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) resolution.
This ZenFone 5 is rumored to run Android 8.0 Oreo, with a USB Type-C port as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the back, the leaked render shows that the smartphone has a fingerprint sensor and a dual camera setup.
Twitterati Bernardo G da Silva has separately posted a live image of the ZenFone 5. It even showed some tweaks on the interface-level to make the space for the notch. For instance, the status bar in the leaked image has a battery icon on the top-right side, while the SIM status is available on the top-left side.
