Yesterday, in the same tweet thread, Blass revealed that the Asus Zenfone 5 Lite will apparently feature a quad-camera setup, which means, dual-camera setup on the front and back. The leak also claims that the purported Zenfone 5 Lite will feature a combination of two 20-megapixel cameras at the rear, and a combination of two 16-megapixel sensors in the front. Further, the smartphone is believed to feature a display with FHD+ resolution, which translates to 2160 1440 pixels.

The tweet also carried an image that showed off the front and back of the purported smartphone. The leaked images showed no physical button on the front, but a considerably big bezel on the top and bottom. The fingerprint sensor is expected to sit at the back, just below a vertically placed dual-camera setup. The cameras at the rear are seen accompanied with an LED flash.

Simultaneously, another new leak about the Asus Zenfone 5 has cropped up, which claims that we may be seeing an iPhone X-like notch on the smartphone. According to a new design leak by Roland Quandt, the Zenfone 5 will blatantly borrow design cues from the iPhone X.

The leak claims that not only will the new Asus flagship feature the notch on the front it will also sport a vertical dual-camera setup on the rear, very similar to the iPhone s setup. Other than that, the leak reveals the smartphone will feature a fingerprint sensor on the back, USB Type-C port, a standard headphone jack, and the tall Full HD+ screen.

While these are some solid-looking leaks, it is always best to take them with a pinch of salt. Asus is expected to hold an event for the launch of the Zenfone 5 Lite and the Zenfone 5 on February 27 in Barcelona, Spain, at the MWC 2018.
