ASUS today announced ZenFone Live (L1), a compact 5.5-inch entertainment-focused smartphone that’s designed to put the fun back into mobile lifestyles.
ZenFone Live features an 5.5-inch Full View 18:9 display in an amazingly compact body that’s as small as many 5-inch phones, offering an immersive cinema-like entertainment experience in a comfortable-to-hold form factor. The high-capacity 3000mAh battery now gives users more mobile freedom than ever, giving them all-day standby with extended talk times and the ability to enjoy their music or videos for longer. It’s also equipped with up to a 13MP rear camera with phase-detection autofocus (PDAF) and a high-quality five-element lens2, allowing users to capture amazing and memorable moments.
Offering class-leading convenience, ZenFone Live features face unlock capabilities for easy hands-free unlocking. It also includes dual SIM slots and a microSD card slot for adding up to 2TB of extra storage.
ZenFone Live is available with Android™ Oreo® enhanced with the brand-new ASUS ZenUI 5.
The pocket-friendly 5.5-inch ZenFone Live is just as small and compact as many standard 5-inch phones, something made possible by its big and bright ASUS Full View HD+ display. This has ultraslim side bezels and an 18:9 aspect ratio that not only makes it bigger, wider, clearer, and brighter (up to 400 nits), but also allows it to fit in a much smaller frame than a standard display. The result is more screen with less bulk, providing users with an immersive cinema-like experience in a lightweight body that’s truly comfortable to hold.
For non-stop entertainment, ZenFone Live is fitted with a powerful 3000mAh battery that just goes on and on, so users can drown out the world with all-day music, watch back-to-back videos or chat from dusk to dawn — if they’ve the stamina, so has ZenFone Live!
The high-capacity battery supports up to 29 hours of 3G talk time, up to 4 days of music playback, video playback of up to 9 movie-length videos, up to 42 days of 4G standby time and up to 18 hours of Wi-Fi web browsing1.
ZenFone Live is designed for maximum convenience, with class-leading features including face unlock. This allows easy hands-free unlocking of the, a very useful feature when the user’s hands are occupied, wet or when wearing gloves.
At the rear is up to a super-sharp 13MP main camera with a 0.3-second PDAF focusing system, so ZenFone Live is always on hand to capture life’s magic moments — even the fastest-moving ones. A high-quality five-element lens ensures bright, crisp and clear pictures in any situation.
With ZenFone Live, users don’t need to carry two separate phones: its handy triple-slot tray takes two 4G LTE SIM cards, and there’s also a microSD card slot supporting up to 2TB of extra storage. With this great feature, users can have two different phone numbers, and add as much storage as they need for their music, photos, videos and other personal stuff.
With a choice of two vivid metallic colors — luscious Midnight Black, sophisticated Shimmer Gold — ZenFone Live lets users make their own bold style statement and let their individuality shine.
