ZenFone 5Z. It also has AI-powered smart charging, where it learns when you need to charge the phone fast, and when it can slow down the charging in case you're going to connect it for a long time.

It runs on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box but is skinned with Asus' own custom ZenUI 5.0. The softlight LED flash is just below the camera module and a fingerprint scanner besides it in the center.

ASUS has also included ZeniMoji - ASUS's answer to Apple's Animoji.

As noted by The Verge, Asus is making some spurious AI claims, too. Fair enough, though we still would've liked to test one out.

The ZenFone 5Z and the ZenFone 5 come with professional grade real-time portrait capturing that allows users to take professional close up shots of people or other objects with the right amount of bokeh. The Zenfone 5z from Asus comes with a huge 6.2-inch display with a almost bezel-less form factor. The chipset on the ZenFone 5Z comes with the 3 generation AI platform that has the Hexagon 685 Vector DSP and Adreno 630 Graphics and the Kryo 385 architecture GPU. The cameras seem to be the same specifications as the 5Z but will lack the PDA and four axis OIS of the 5Z.

The Asus ZenFone Max (M1) (ZB555KL) will be available in Deepsea Black, Sunlight Gold, and Ruby Red colour variants.

The 6.2-inch full HD AMOLED display on the ZenFone 5 has a bezel that is hardly noticeable, barring a notch along the top for the earpiece and camera. It is backed by a 3300mAh battery with BoostMaster and AI Charging.

Asus has introduced several features powered by AI and big data analytics, including something called AI Charging that aims to preserve battery life by analysing users' phone charging patterns.

The device features a 6.2-inch Full HD+ LCD display with a 2246 x 1080 pixel resolution. In spite of that, however, the Zenfone 5 isn't all that inconvenient to hold which is nice.

On the imaging front, the ZenFone Max Plus M1 sports a front-facing f/2.0 selfie camera alongside a dual rear-camera setup and wide angle lens. The phone also holds a solution if you're anxious about overheating from heavy use, with four 0.06mm thick carbon fiber cooling pads that reduce the heat from the Snapdragon 845. The device will sport a dedicated microSD card slot. Asus intend to release an update for Android 9 devices.

Asus have produced a lot of phones in recent years with every little addition getting a brand new moniker.

We've yet to properly experiment with this feature, but if it works as well as on other handsets you can expect this to be useful when you're just using the phone's automatic mode.

These phones appear to be some decent looking phones with decent enough specs considering the prices. Rest of everything stays the same as of Zenfone 5Z.

If you're interested in getting your hands on the ZenFone 5, it won't be hitting the market until April.
