Taiwanese manufacturer Asus today announced the Zenfone 5 Lite and it will go on sale in Philippines next week for Php 5,595 (Rs 7,700). As the name suggests, the phone appears to be a lower-end variant of the Zenfone 5, which the company had launched earlier this year.In terms of specifications, the Zenfone 5 Lite A502CG has very similar hardware as the Zenfone 5, but there are noticeable differences. The Zenfone 5 Lite comes with a 5-inch IPS display with qHD screen resolution. Inside the device sits a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2520 processor, which comes paired with 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal storage. The dual-SIM capable Zenfone 5 Lite supports 3G, and Wi-Fi. It has an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and 0.3-megapixel snapper upfront. The phone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with Zen UI on top.

Compared to the Zenfone 5 (read our review here), the Zenfone 5 Lite packs a less powerful processor. The Zenfone 5 variant Asus launched in India was powered by 1.6GHz Intel Z2560 processor and came with 2GB of RAM. Compared to Zenfone 5 Lite’s 0.3-megapixel selfie camera, the Zenfone 5 had a 2-megapixel snapper upfront. But amusingly enough, the Lite version packs in 2,500mAh battery compared to 2,110mAh battery in the Zenfone 5.

The Zenfone 5 Lite will be launched in Charcoal Black, Pearl White, and Cherry Red color options in Philippines. The company is yet to announce whether it plans to launch the phone in more countries. Considering the price point of around Rs 7,500, the Zenfone 5 Lite will be competing with recently launched Lava Iris Selfie 50, Huawei Honor Holly, Xiaomi Redmi 1S, and Micromax Canvas A1.
