Some rumors suggest that we might see at least three devices - Zenfone 5, Zenfone 5 Lite and Zenfone 5 Max with massive battery.

Word has it that ASUS could be launching two models - the ZenFone 5 Max and ZenFone 5 Lite. As usual, Asus will launch a plethora of new devices under the Zenfone 5 lineup. It is expected to come running the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system and have several feature upgrades over its predecessor Zenfone 4 Max. It also appears to come with features, such as Wi-Fi Direct and Miracast support.

Asus is also in rumours for developing the ZenFone 5 Lite that recently received a certification in Russian Federation. The phone is rumoured to sport a 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a Snapdragon SoC.

The new phones are arriving just five months after the Zenfone 4 versions hit the market.
