Asus Teases The New Zenfone 5 Lite Smartphone


After a quick tease a few days back, Asus has finally took the wraps of the new smartphone offering.. well sort of. That is because Asus Philippines' website has added a new ZenFone 5 variant very recently with a model number A50CG which we assume is the Lite version. It's not a new flagship device though but the name is very familiar and the specs are quite powerful, meet the Asus ZenFone 5 Lite. I don't know about you  but everytime I see a "Mini" or "Lite" naming on a new device I always think that its higher end brother had success when released and I think that is also the case with the original ZenFone 5.


 Below is the promotional image published by Asus PH on their Facebook page teasing us about the upcoming Lite version of the ZenFone 5 Smartphone. It says "See what others can't see in a whole new lite". What does that mean? Maybe it is referring to the processor inside the device which is an Intel Atom Z2520 chip which is something we really do not see in lite or mini versions of other manufacturers. Below are the specs we spotted on the said product webpage. Let's keep in mind that Asus has not officially announced the ZenFone 5 Lite and the product posted on their website could be another device or the specs are not final, but it's definite that the ZenFone 5 Lite is coming "soon". We will have to wait until Asus fully unveiled this new smartphone.
