Asus ZenFone 5 Series smartphones might launch at MWC 2018

The Taiwanese company has sent out invites for its event at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that is scheduled for February 27. Earlier it was reported that the fifth generation Sefanov will include a budget smartphone ZenFone 5 Lite with screen 6 inches and an aspect ratio of 18:9, and the company he should be a giant phablet ZenFone 5 Max - nearly a competitor to the Xiaomi Mi 2 Max the screen size.

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.

USA ready to hit Syrian chemical weapons
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis issued a stern warning on Friday to Syria, urging the regime to abstain from using chemical weapons. Damascus has denied using any chemical weapons in the seven-year conflict, blaming the rebels on using it on themselves.

The new phones are arriving just five months after the Zenfone 4 versions hit the market.

Asus is also in rumours for developing the ZenFone 5 Lite that recently received a certification in Russian Federation. You can expect at least one of them to come with an 18:9 display. It features a full-HD+ display and a dual camera setup on the back that both are likely to be the key trends in the next ZenFone range.
