Asus has launched the Zenfone V in the US, and that might sounds like the Zenfone 5 when read but here it’s ‘V for Verizon.’ As it is carrier-exclusive smartphone and it isn’t a rebadged version of an existing one, but rather a new device with a model name V520KL.
The Zenfone V is has 5.2-inch FullHD AMOLED display – Asus doesn’t make all that many phones with AMOLEDs. Even fewer have the Snapdragon 820 processor powering the device, just the Zenfone 3 Deluxe, and now this Zenfone V.
It sports a 23MP primary camera unit with an f/2.0 aperture lens and OIS. There is an 8MP front-facing camera.
Asus ZenFone V has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which is expandable via microSD card. Battery capacity is 3,000mAh and the phone supports PowerDelivery 2.0 via USB-C.
The phone is only listed on Asus’ US website for now, Verizon is still quiet on the matter.
Hence there’s no information on pricing and availability of the smartphone.
