At the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain, ASUS brought their A-game by debuting the most anticipated addition to its ZenFone line.
Dubbed as the “most intelligent ZenFone ever,” the ASUS ZenFone 5 is the first globally announced smartphone to use Snapdragon 636 SoC with Multi-core A.I., which powers the device in more ways than one.
The 19:9 all-screen display boasts a bigger view at 6.2 inches in a compact body of 5.5 inches. It also features Auto Color Temperature (RGB sensor) that measures the temperature of ambient light in your surroundings and gives you a better viewing experience by automatically adjusting screen color.
This phone also boasts an adaptive A.I. ringtone that adjusts its volume based on your environment. Say, if you’re in a meeting and the room is quiet, the ring volume automatically tones down.
Of course, the ASUS ZenFone is also known for its photography features and the ZenFone 5 is no exception. Using A.I. Scene Detection, this phone can determine 16 types of scenes and subjects—from humans to food, animals, sceneries, etc.—and provides the most appropriate settings for each one. It also utilizes A.I. for Real-time Beautification on your selfie portraits.
Another unique feature of the ZenFone 5 is the Smart Charging, which detects your usage and charging patterns to give you optimal battery power. For example, if you tend to use your phone throughout the day and charge it overnight, it will apply a slow charge when it is connected to power at night. But when you charge it in the middle of the day because you used your phone more heavily than usual, it applies a faster charge to give you more juice at a quicker pace.
