- The Asus Zenfone V is exclusive to Verizon
- The phone sports a 23-megapixel rear camera
- Zenfone 4 series available exclusively on Flipkart
Asus just launched its smartphone, the ZenFone V with model name V520KL which has been made exclusive to the US carrier Verizon. The ‘V’ in the name could likely refer to Verizon and not to the number 5 as that already exists. The smartphone is listed on Asus’ website but the carrier has yet to reveal the price and availability details of the phone. What we do know, however, is that the phone will be offered in Sapphire Black when it goes on sale.
As per the listing on Asus’s website, the ZenFone V will sport a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080×1920) AMOLED display and will come with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass on top and also a 10-finger capacitive touch. The phone is to be powered by 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 820 SOC and will have 4GB of RAM. The phone will run on the company’s own ZenUI 3.0 that is based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
One of the gabbing points about the Asus ZenFone V smartphone is its main camera that features a 23-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture, 4-axis OIS, laser autofocus, EIS and Pixel Master camera modes like portrait, low-light and selfie panorama among others. On the front, there is an 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 aperture.

The Asus Zenfone V is going to be offered with 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded via micro SD card up to 256GB. Coming to the connectivity features in the phone, you get Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, GPS, A-GPS/GLONASS, 4G support, USB Type-C, and much more. The sensors in the phone include an accelerator, gyroscope, ambient light and proximity sensor etc. The phone comes fitted with a 3000mAh battery with backing for Power Delivery 2.0 via USB-C that measures 146.5×72.6×7.6mm and weighs 147 grams.
Since the phone is listed as a Verizon-exclusive, it is unlikely that we will see the smartphone in markets outside the US. However, Asus in India launched it’s ZenFone 4 Series last week with the ZenFone 4 Selfie and the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro. These phones are available exclusively on Flipkart.
