As per the leak, the ZenFone 5 Lite will feature an FHD+ display with 2160×1440 pixel resolution, however, the size of the screen is not known.
But what’s truly impressive about the Asus ZenFone 5 Lite is its camera set-up. The upcoming device is equipped with a dual camera set-up on its rear as well as the front side. The ZenFone 5 Lite features a 20MP + 20MP sensor combination on the front side to capture superior quality selfies, presumably with some depth of field effects and bokeh magic. Moreover, there is a selfie flash too, that will supposedly come in handy while clicking selfies in dark environs.
On the rear side, the ZenFone 5 Lite flaunts yet another dual camera set-up, arranged in a 16MP + 16MP sensor combination. The dual rear cameras are enclosed in a central pill-shaped enclosure which appears to be made out of metal, and below it, sits the fingerprint sensor. No further details about ZenFone 5 Lite’s technical specifications are known, but the device is expected to come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC.
We’ll keep you posted with details about the upcoming device when Asus officially unveils the ZenFone 5 Lite on February 27, alongside the rumored ZenFone 5 and the ZenFone 5 Max, the latter of which is expected to pack a huge battery.
