Take a jacket made up of smartphones, a talented young dancer (Ian Eastwood, who has appeared on NBC's "World of Dance"), and a great idea from the mind of OK GO's Damian Kulash. Mix up these ingredients and you get a new commercial for the Asus ZenFone 5
and ZenFone 5z
. The ZenFone 5 series is made up of the ZenFone 5, the ZenFone 5Q
(aka ZenFone Lite in some markets) and the ZenFone 5z
, which were all introduced at MWC this past February
We don't know when or if the ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5z
will be offered in the states. However, just the other day we told you that Amazon U.S. is now taking pre-orders for the lowest priced model of the three
, the ZenFone 5Q
. The phone will ship in July, and is the one version of the series that is not notchy. The ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5z both sport notches and look the same from the outside. One major difference between the pair is that the ZenFone 5z carries a Snapdragon 845 mobile platform compared to the Snapdragon 636 that runs the ZenFone 5.
The ZenFone 5 series employs AI to turn users into better photographers. AI Boost helps the phones allocate processing where it is needed most, improving performance in some tasks such as gaming.
