Lastly, the invite confirms the presence of Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors on its upcoming smartphones. Those who can't make it to Barcelona will be able to watch the press event live on the company's website. Since the last year's Zenfone 4 Pro came with Snapdragon 835 SoC, we might see the Zenfone 5 Pro with Snapdragon 845 SoC on 2018.

Nothing significant about Asus ZenFone 5 Lite has been leaked, but Mobiltelefon (in Russian) has reported that it has been certified in Russia, giving a hint that its release date may not be far off. The handset runs Android 8.0 Oreo and comes with a dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, as per the certification.
