Asus adapts the notch on the Apple iPhone X to its upcoming Zenphone, The Zennfone 5. A leaked image of the phone confirms the previous rumours on the phone and render leaks of having an iPhone X like notch present in the top edge of the display.
The notch is not as bigger as the one on iPhone, as the device lacks face recognition sensor. Instead of which the notch will have the front camera module and the earpiece.
This Image leak only reveals the front part of the device, but as said in the past the renders of the device have been leaked, which gives us a fair idea of the device. The Zenfone 5 will have a glass back one similar to the predecessors. The renders also tell that the design at the back is similar to the iPhone X.
The Phone is expected to have a dual camera setup, positioned vertically one above the above. Followed by a LED flash and Finger Print scanner at the rear. To the bottom of the phone, USB Type-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack. So Asus is not yet dumping the 3.5mm headphone jack like Apple.
The Zenfone 5, according to other leaks will be powered by the Snapdragon 636 chipset, with up to 6GB of RAM. There might be another variant of the Zenfone 5 with Snapdragon 670 SoC, which will also be unveiled at the MWC 2018 event by Qualcomm.
Asus has already sent out media invites confirming its presence at the Mobile World Congress event. And the Zenfone 5 along with a selfie-centric Zenfone 5 Lite and Zenfone 5 Max smartphones are expected to be unveiled at the event.
