Android Oreo Go-Powered ASUS ZenFone Live L1 Announced in Indonesia

The Taiwanese electronics giant, has just officially launched its first ever Android Go-powered smartphone in the Indonesian market - meet the ASUS ZenFone Live L1.

The news was first reported by an Indonesia-based website called Gadgetren. There, the key specs of this smartphone are shared such as the 5.5-inch display with HD+ or 1440 x 720p resolution across the device's 18:9 aspect ratio display. There was no mention of a fingerprint scanner, instead a face unlock feature is confirmed situated on the phone's front panel.

On the camera side, the ZenFone Live L1 packs 13MP rear camera with phase-detection autofocus and LED features while the front camera is pegged at 5MP.

Now about its main highlight, being powered by the latest Android Go edition which I talked more about here when it was officially launched last year.  It is basically a lightweight and optimized version of the latest Android Oreo OS catering to entry level devices with either 1GB or 512MB RAM. Manufacturers such as ASUS are working with Google to produce these Google-certified type of devices so that they can deliver the Android Oreo experience to a larger group of consumers at a very affordable price.

That being said, the ASUS ZenFone Live L1 is equipped with 1GB or RAM, an expandable 16GB internal storage via microSD card (with its own slot), and a Snapdragon 425 processor right out of the box. Keeping the lights on is a massive 3000mAh battery pack.
