After Asus announced three new smartphones at MWC 2018, the company is apparently still working ahead on the Zenfone 5 series. If reports are to be believed, the next device that we can expect from Asus is the Zenfone 5 Max. And from what MySmartPrice spotted, the device is already out for testing, and its scores have been spotted on GeekBench.

Per the listing on the benchmarking website, the purported Asus Zenfone 5 Max will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, and 4GB of RAM. Additionally, the smartphone is seen running Android 8.0 Oreo. The upcoming device is also expected to feature a 5.7-inch display with full HD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. The customary screen notch is present too, along with a 3.5mm audio jack and USB Type-C port. Earlier this year, the Zenfone 5 Max was also spotted receiving its Wi-Fi certification.

At MWC 2018, Asus unveiled its latest flagship smartphone series in the Asus Zenfone 5. Launched with three variants, the Asus Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5Z are similar in terms of design and most specifications. The only notable differences between the two phones are the choice of SoC and memory

The Zenfone 5 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC with up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, while the Asus Zenfone 5Z features the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, and comes with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

The most affordable of the lot is the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite, which comes with a 6-inch full HD+ 18:9 screen. The phone features a dual-camera setup at both the front and the back, with a 20-megapixel + 8-megapixel front camera setup and a 16-megapixel + 8-megapixel rear camera setup. Both cameras can shoot 120-degree wide-angle shots. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, and it is backed by a 3,300mAh battery.
