Asus made a relatively early start on Android Oreo updates for both the ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 4 lineups, but weirdly enough, humbler members of the older family got priority over the Taiwanese company's main 2017 flagship model. You can expect 64GB and 12GB variants of the phone based on the internal storage and iPhone X-like notch that we saw in the other Zenfone 5 series of phones. Though the device did not make its appearance at the MWC 2018, it looks like we have some details of it. However, this smartphone has now been spotted on a benchmarking site along with some of its key specifications. Now reports have hinted at a possible 4th model called the ZenFone 5 Max.
According to the Geekbench listing, the phone in question is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC with 4GB RAM. The phone manages a decent single-core score of 1518 and multi-core score of 5386 when compared with devices with Snapdragon 600 series SoC that we have reviewed in past. Moving onto the software, the device will boot Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with the company's Zen UI user interface. Amongst them, there was one more smartphone under the ZenFone 5 series that ASUS didn't announce - the ZenFone 5 Max. After all, ASUS has always put emphasis on battery life with its Max series smartphones. New information about the ZenFone5 Max suggests this is a mid-range handset rather than a top-tier one.
