ASUS Announces Availability of ZenFone 5Q

    Fremont, CA (June 11, 2018) - ASUS today announced the availability of the ZenFone 5Q, a stylish 6-inch smartphone featuring the world's first globally-announced1 true four-camera system with fully independent high-resolution and wide-angle cameras at both front and rear. ZenFone 5Q is the perfect choice for true photo lovers who want to stand out from the crowd.

    ZenFone 5Q removes the limits on photographic creativity, with a high-resolution main camera — 20MP at the front, 16MP at the rear — and, uniquely, a secondary 120° wide-angle camera at both front and rear. Unlike rival systems, each camera works independently for perfect shots, every time.

    The 6-inch Full HD+ IPS display has a Full View 18:9 aspect ratio and an ultraslim bezel, making the pocket-friendly ZenFone 5Q as compact as a standard-aspect-ratio 5.5-inch phone.

    Powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 Mobile Platform, ZenFone 5Q combines incredible performance and a 3300mAh battery with advanced security and convenience features — including NFC, rapid face unlock, fingerprint recognition and dual SIMs — for a mobile experience like no other.

    ASUS ZenFone 5Q

    Creativity without limits

    Designed for true photo lovers, ZenFone 5Q features the world's first globally-announced true four-camera system with four fully-functional and independent cameras. Each main high-resolution camera — 20MP Sony at the front and 16MP at the rear — is accompanied by a secondary wide-angle camera with a 120° field of view that's 2X wider than a standard lens, giving users the best of all possible worlds.

    Unlike other systems where the secondary camera only works in conjunction with the main camera for special effects, in ZenFone 5Q each of the four cameras can be used individually, removing the limits on creativity and giving users the freedom to tailor their shots to the occasion. With a choice of standard or ultrawide shots at both front and rear, ZenFone 5Q makes it easier to compose the perfect selfie, wefie, landscape, portrait or group shot.

    ZenFone 5Q includes the ASUS BeautyLive live-beautification technology with live-streaming video support for Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms. Users can choose from a range of enhancements — such as removing skin blemishes or adjusting skin tones — in real time, and they can use the handy Mirroring mode to avoid annoying mirror-image videos with unreadable text. Beautification is enhanced with the softlight LED flash, giving perfect skin tones in photos or when streaming in low-light conditions.

    Expanded view

    ZenFone 5Q has a stunning 6-inch screen, but it’s as compact as most 5.5-inch smartphones. That’s because it uses our latest edge-to-edge Full View display, featuring an 18:9 aspect ratio and ultraslim bezel. This beautiful Full HD+ (2160x1080) display has superb color accuracy — essential for photo lovers — and the wide format delivers a bigger view of everything. With full support for new 18:9 features like YouTube’s ‘zoom-to-fill’, videos and movies have never looked better, and its extra-wide display is perfect for using dual side-by-side windows in landscape orientation, or stacking multiple windows in portrait orientation.

    Advanced performance

    ZenFone 5Q is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform with up to 4GB of RAM for dramatically faster CPU and GPU performance. And for blazingly fast network connectivity in any situation, ZenFone 5Q supports up to 400Mbps 4G LTE download speeds, up to 75Mbps uploads, and 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi.

    The optimized power efficiency of the 14nm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform's FinFET Low Power Plus power-saving technology combined with a 3300mAh battery gives users up to 24 days of 4G standby time, 30 hours of 3G talk time, or 4 days of music playback usage.

    ZenFone 5Q also incorporates NFC technology for convenient and secure mobile contactless payments with Google Pay™. For flexible, fast and easy access, ZenFone 5Q includes rapid face-unlock technology that's ideal for unlocking the phone when hands are cold, wet or messy. It quickly unlocks the phone and can also prevent unauthorized users viewing lock-screen notifications. There's also a handy rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that instantly unlocks the phone in just 0.3 seconds.

    For the ultimate on-the-go convenience, ZenFone 5Q has a triple-slot tray with two SIM slots — supporting speeds up to 400Mbps — plus a microSD slot for expanding storage up to 2TB.

    Stylish and chic

    ZenFone 5Q is crafted to perfection, with 2.5D-contoured glass panels at front and rear that simply ooze luxury. Its appearance is enhanced with an optical coating to give it a deep sheen and stunning color. ZenFone 5Q is available in two elegant colors: Midnight Black and Moonlight White.
