5-inch asus zenfone

It was rumoured a few weeks back that Asus could be working on a 5-inch version of their Zenfone 2, now photos of such a phone have emerged with specifications.

Formally known as the Asus Zenfone ZE500L, the phone has been leaked in a couple of live photos showing the 5-inch phone alongside the 5.5-inch Zenfone 2.

Other than the size of the phone, the 5-inch ZE500L the only other physical differences seems to be the position of the LED flash and that fact it is only a single LED.

Specifications are claimed to be a 5-inch 720p display, 1.6ghz Intel Atom Z2560 dual core processor, 2GB RAM, LTE, 8 mega-pixel rear camera, 2 mega-pixel front and 2500mAh battery.

Apparently the phone will launch early March in Taiwan and will likely make an appearance at MWC. Other versions of the phone with optional processors are also thought to be in the works.

    A Z2560 SOC ? I do hope this is a mistake or a joke or something. That’s a middle of 2013 SOC and it wasn’t a very good one even then. Seriously Asus ?

    SoC was not that bad, if the phone goes for 110USD it might be a good deal.

      You might want to think twice, unless you’re always near wall socket or bring large capacity power bank around. The 2110mAh Zenfone 5 battery life was horrendous, like less than 1/3 day per full charge horrendous bad, a mere 400mAh boost won’t do anything.

    ASUS… please make a Republic of Gamers line of phones… with the Nvidia Tegra X1 powering it.

      Nvidia designed the X1 for car computers. It has power access to lots of power so it can calculate distances and maneuvers on the fly while processing video signals from up to 6 cameras. If you put this beast into tablet or smartphone it will drain power too quickly so GPU/CPU clock will be throttled down. BTW Snapdragon 810 have 288 GPU cores vs 256 in X1.

    Very confused, is it the 4GB (ram) version 5 or 5.5”? Is mirracast in the mix as well and can we buy cheaper on-line through China?
