ASUS today launched two new Android phones in the U.S.
First up is the ASUS ZenFone Live, an Android Oreo (Go edition) device. This entry-level unlocked Android phone is now available from Best Buy at a price of $109.99. It’s packing a 5.5-inch HD display with 18:9 aspect ratio, 13MP rear and 5MP front cameras, and GSM support, which means it works with carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S.
Inside the ZenFone Live’s shell is a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of built-in storage. ASUS has thrown a microSD card slot in, too, case you need additional storage. There’s a 3000mAh battery powering the whole package, a 3.5mm headphone jack, dual SIM slots, and an FM radio app.
If you’re looking for something a little higher-end the ASUS ZenFone 5Z is now available from Amazon. It’s got a 6.2-inch 2246×1080 display with a notch, octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor, and a dual rear camera setup with 12MP and 8MP rear cameras. The 12MP camera is a Sony IMX363 sensor with f/1.8 aperture, real-time portrait mode, and real-time beautification, while the 8MP secondary camera is a 120-degree wide angle lens.
Also included with the ASUS ZenFone 5Z is 6GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, a microSD slot, and dual SIM slots. ASUS added a rear fingerprint reader and face unlock for added security, NFC, FM radio, and a 3300mAh battery with BoostMaster fast charging support. Rounding things out are dual speakers and Android Oreo.
The ASUS ZenFone 5Z is being sold unlocked and is compatible with GSM networks.
