The new ZenFone 5 series includes- Zenfone 5, Zenfone 5Z and Zenfone 5 Lite.

Asus has recently launched the latest Zenfone series of flagship smartphones last month at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress which was held in Barcelona same as every year.

The Geekbench scorecard doesn't reveal much other meaningful information about the Zenfone 5 Max, but we bet more leaks are on the way to fill us in. The benchmark listing reveals the key specifications of the smartphone and these seem to be surprising. As per the listing on Geekbench, the Zenfone 5 Max has 4GB RAM and Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 1.61 GHz octa-core processor. It is also rumoured to come with 64GB internal storage and some reports also suggest that Asus might be tempted to place a notch on top of the Asus Zenfone 5 Max display which could be similar to the iPhone X in terms of looks. It first leaked earlier this year when the Asus smartphone with model number ASUS_X00QD received WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA).

Alongside the three Zenfone 5 series, Asus also launched the ZenFone Max (M1) smartphone that follows the design language of last year's ZenFone Max Plus (M1). Moving onto the software, the device will boot Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with the company's Zen UI user interface.

No more details about the smartphone are known at the moment but since the device has started taking the rounds online we expect more leaks to come up in the coming days. And, while the size of the update is now unknown, it's safe to assume it will weigh more than 1 GB in size as this is an Android version update.
