Asus Zenfone 5 Max surfaces showing 4GB RAM, Snapdragon 660

Asus recently launched its Zenfone 5 series of smartphones including Zenfone 5Z, Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5 Lite at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona (Spain). The phone is seen with model number ASUS_X00QD and there are guesses that it is the Zenfone 5 Max. Though the device did not make its appearance at the MWC 2018, it looks like we have some details of it.

Going by the Geekbench results, the Zenfone 5 Max's processor could be clocked at 1.61GHz. The benchmark listing reveals the key specifications of the smartphone and these seem to be surprising. The Asus Zenfone 5 Max has now been listed on the popular benchmarking website Geekbench and the listing shows that the smartphone will have Snapdragon 660 SoC and 4GB RAM. The handset is based on the Android 8.0.0 Oreo operating system. The smartphone is rumoured to succeed the ZenFone 4 MAX. We say so as the previous generation Zenfone Max models utilized low-end MediaTek chipsets. It runs Android 8.0 Oreo and scores 1518 in single-core and 5386 in multi0-core tests.




Seeing as at least two of the ZenFone 5 series devices revealed at MWC 2018 have an iPhone X-like notch, it may be assumed that ZenFone 5 Max may also come with the infamous notch. For now, there is no word on the other specifications that this smartphone from Asus might arrive with. However, Asus is widely popular for the mid-range as well as budget smartphones from the company and we are now getting reports that the company is likely to launch a new smartphone in the Asus Zenfone 5 series in the mid-range lineup. Moving onto the software, the device will boot Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with the company's Zen UI user interface.
