Asus ZenFone 5's beefed up specs show up in benchmark

Asus ZenFone 5's beefed up specs show up in benchmark
Asus is readying its new ZenFone smartphones, which will be revealed on February 27 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018. We've already learned a few things about some of the devices that Asus plans to introduce later this month, including what some of them look like.

A live picture allegedly showing the front side of the Asus ZenFone 5, which seems to be the company's upcoming flagship, leaked online. Now we have more information on what's under the hood thanks to AnTuTu, a benchmarking tool used to test the performance of phones and other devices.

If the information provided by AnTuTu is correct, we can expect Asus' new flagship to boast a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor inside, coupled with no less than 6GB RAM. The amount of storage reported by the benchmarking tool is a bit disappointing if it's accurate – only 32GB internal memory.

Also, the phone's display features a rather unusual resolution (2,246 x 1080 pixels), which clearly suggests it will include a notch that will house the front camera, earpiece, and a few sensors.

We've already been invited to Asus' MWC 2018 press conference on February 27, so stay tuned for more information on the matter later this month.

The notch with thick bottom bezel is somewhat perplexing.

Any notch out of a display is perplexing, period. Not to mention unnecessary.

Why the hell would they do that? It would defeat the entire purpose of making a "clone".

Notches are stupid anyway you look at them. But the iPhone X notch is the worst because it gives you the least amount of usable space out of all the notches to date.

It's like they waited for iPhone X to come out and they went "There's our new flagship for 2018" :-D

6GB of RAM yet it only has 32GB of internal storage? WTF asus! This should have been 128GB internal!

Oppo and Vivo are selling hundreds of million units of iPhone look alikes yearly and NOT cheaply. Their premium mid-range handsets are not any cheaper than Samsung's own premium mid-rangers like C line and they are comparable spec by spec. So blatantly copying iPhone X is not necessarily bad move for Asus. If the price is right that might be successfull IMO and Asus' mobile division desperately needs that.
