Earlier today, ASUS launched the LTE variant of the ZenFone 5 in Singapore which may serve as a hint that it may soon land on our shore in the coming months, probably in time for the holiday season.
The ZenFone 5 LTE (A500KL) is the fourth variant of the 5-inch ZenFone and was initially launched in ASUS’ home turf last month and was priced at TWD6,990 (or 10,215.13 in our local currency).
In order to have LTE connectivity, ASUS had to ditch the Intel chipset found on all of the other ZenFones and go with a Snapdragon 400 processor with 2GB of RAM and an expandable 16GB of storage.
Other than this though, the ZenFone 5 LTE inherits all the features found on the non-LTE variant including the PixelMaster camera suite and crisp 5-inch HD display.
ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE (A500KL) specs:
5-inch IPS LCD display, 1280 x 720 @294ppi
1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8926 quad-core processor
Adreno 305 GPU
Expandable 16GB internal storage

WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
8MP BSI rear camera w/ LED flash
1080p video recording @30fps
2MP front-facing camera

ASUS Philippines remains mum about the launch date of the ZenFone 5 LTE in the country and its SRP as of the time of writing.
