Asus Confirms its Presence at MWC 2018, Might Unveil Zenfone 5 Series on February 27th

The Taiwanese tech giant has reportedly sent the media invites for its conference at MWC 2018.

The event will be held on February 27th at 7:30 pm CET, i.e., 12 am IST on February 28th. The company has also started sending out invites for the launch event. Surprisingly, Asus now confirmed its presence at the upcoming MWC event.

Back in September Asus said the Zenfone 5 series should be expected in Q1 2018 and today we have an official announcement date. This means, the smartphones will be camera-focused.

Furthermore, the invite features a "We Love Photo" tag that was originally used during the launch of the Zenfone 4 range of phones a year ago and sports Qualcomm Snapdragon's logo. Unfortunately, the name of the chipset is not specified.

Although the invitation for the press event does not reveal a lot of details, the #backtobuzz5, Qualcomm Snapdragon, and Zenfone logos suggest that this is all about the new Zenfone 5 smartphone, or possibly the entire Zenfone 5 series.

If recent reports are to be believed, the ZenFone 5 series will consist of smartphones such as ZenFone 5 (2018), ZenFone 5 Lite and ZenFone 5 Max.

This #BackTo5 hashtag could mean anything from 5000 mAh batteries in each ZenFone, 5 colours, 5 different ZenFone models or even 5 glass layer displays or backsides. The handset runs Android 8.0 Oreo and comes with a dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, as per the certification.

The Asus ZenFone 5 Lite, on the other hand, was certified in Russian Federation.
