Asus Zenfone 5 comes with Snapdragon 400 and LTE

Asus refreshed one of their Zenfone this year and re-introduced the Zenfone 5 with LTE, replacing the dual-core Intel Atom processor with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip.

The design is the same as the older Zenfone 5 so there’s really no cosmetic changes.


ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE A500CG specs:
5-inch IPS+ panel @ 1280 x 720 pixels, 294ppi
Qualcomm MSM8962 Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz quad-core
Adreno 305 Graphics

Bluetooth 4.0
8MP BSI rear camera, Sony sensor w/ LED flash
1080p video recording @ 30fps
2MP front-facing camera
GPS with aGPS support
Li-Ion 2,050mAh battery
Android 4.3 (Android 4.4 Kitkat by July)

We don’t have any other details as to the suggested retail price but we’re expecting it would be a little more expensive than the Atom-touting one.

      At anong problema kung may naghihintay sa phone na ito? Ikaw ba ang hihingan nila ng pambili? Doon ka sa North Korea kung ayaw mo ng masasayang comments.

    Ang dahilan kung bakit inapgrade nila ang zenfone 5 ay dahil mabagal daw ang processer nito :-)

  7. kap.bambi

    nag overheat kaya masyado yung intel version nito kaya siya pinalitan ung soc?

  8. what is the estimated price here in PH? mr. YUGATECH.. or anyone can answer??

  9. I think they change the Processor because the intel one doesn’t support LTE. that’s it but the intel Processor is Fast based on antutu compared to quad cores by mtk

    When will this be release here on Phil? Because you have announced that it will be release this June.

    …But the atom processor is slightly better than its snapdragon counterpart:

    This also means the atom machine will be able to more seamleassly run a non-android linux OS.
