Asus Zenfone 5Q becomes available in the US for $299
Following a short pre-order period, Asus’ latest mid-range smartphone offering, the ZenFone 5Q, is officially available for purchase in the US.

On sale for $299, those interested in the device will need to know that it’s compatible with GSM Networks over in the US, this means those on AT&T, T-Mobile, or MetroPCS will all be able to take advantage of it. However, customers on Sprint and Verizon are unfortunately out of luck. In regards to what specs the smartphone offers, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630 is included on the inside along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, although if this isn’t sufficient it can be expanded via microSD cards of up to 2TB. Also, on the software side of things, Asus has included Android 8.0 Oreo straight out of the box, albeit with the brand’s ZenUI custom overlay on top. Additionally, this is all backed up by a reasonable 3,300mAh battery.

Moving away from internal details, the exterior of the smartphone is adorned by a large 6-inch 18:9 display, while above it is a dual-camera selfie setup that boasts a main 20-megapixel lens and a secondary 8-megapixel sensor. This is then coupled with a second dual-lens setup on the rear that features a main 16-megapixel camera and yet another 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor.

Currently, the Asus ZenFone 5Q is available to purchase in the US in either White or Black via Amazon, although it’s been confirmed that the smartphone will be made available to customers of B&H, Best Buy, and Newegg.
