Built for strength, finished with beauty
ZenFone 5 is a masterpiece of design, combining strength with beauty. Its glass-covered body is built from special aerospace-grade aluminum that’s light but incredibly strong, and finished using zircon-sandblasting technology and an intricate eight-layer optical coating process. A final varnish coat under the glass gives a deep, rich luster to the iconic Zen-inspired concentric-circle patterning.
Thoughtful design, crafted to perfection
Building ZenFone 5 requires precision engineering and exquisite attention to the finest details, in a complex 206-step process. Even hidden details are important: the special thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) under the metal buttons makes them more reliable and gives them a positive feel. A special anti-glare coating reduces reflections to improve image quality and make the camera lenses less visible.
Effortlessly perfect photos, anytime and anywhere
AI Scene Detection takes the guesswork out of photography. ZenFone 5 uses the power of AI to rapidly analyze the subject and match it to one of its 16 scene types, optimizing the camera settings for almost any kind of subject from sunsets to pet pics. The result is effortlessly perfect photos, anytime and anywhere. ZenFone 5 uses advanced data analysis to constantly enhance the scene detection algorithms, for ever-smarter photography.
Gorgeous portraits photos like never before
ZenFone 5 lets you take professional-looking close-up shots of people or objects, without the hassle. With Real-time Portrait mode, the main subject stays pin-sharp, while the background is given a sense of depth with a graduated bokeh effect — created using depth information intelligently analyzed from the subject — for a beautifully artistic photo. Real-time Portrait mode can be used with the rear main or front cameras, capturing gorgeous portraits and close-ups that rival those taken with high-end DSLR cameras. When using the rear camera, Real-time Portrait uses both cameras simultaneously to optimize the bokeh effect even further.
