Asus ZenFone V has been launched as a Verizon exclusive in the US. The ZenFone V is a premium mid-end smartphone, featuring a Snapdragon 820 processor and a 3000mAh battery. The device has been listed on Asus’ website in the US and is expected to hit the market soon.
The ZenFone V sports a 5.2-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Under the hood, there is Snapdragon 820 processor coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage. A microSD card slot is available for memory expansion (up to 256GB). There’s also a 23MP camera on the back with an aperture of f/2.0 and a dual-LED flash. In the front, the phone packs in an 8MP secondary shooter for selfies.
The phone also supports 24-bit Hi-Res audio along with a 3000mAh battery. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with Asus’ Zen UI 3.0. Other connectivity options include 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.2, Wi-Fi direct, GPS/A-GPS, 4G LTE, USB Type-C, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Asus ZenFone V could be rolled out in other countries, however, for the moment, the device is headed to the US market. It seems a little to odd to note that the ZenFone V will be launched immediately after the global rollout of the ZenFone 4 series. Unfortunately, the ZenFone V doesn’t stand up to the competition owing to its dated specifications. Though it remains to be seen how Asus decides to price its phone in the market.
