Asus Zenfone 5 Max spotted with Snapdragon 660, Android 8.0 Oreo

At the recently concluded MWC 2018 in Barcelona, Asus unveiled a trio of smartphones such as the Zenfone 5 (a mid-range device balancing on the price and quality), Zenfone 5Z (flagship smartphone) and Zenfone 5 Lite (budget model among the three). However, the company didn't showcase its upcoming smartphone, the Zenfone 5 Max, at the event.

Going by the Geekbench results, the Zenfone 5 Max's processor could be clocked at 1.61GHz.

He said the tariffs would also hurt the US auto industry and result in higher costs for consumers on both sides of the border. Other world leaders expressed hope that deals would be made with the Trump administration to avoid tit-for-tat tariffs.

According to the Geekbench listing, the phone in question is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC with 4GB RAM.

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 handset is based on the Android 8.0.0 Oreo operating system.

The ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro was launched past year in August, and, it ran Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box which was layered with ASUS' ZenUI 4.0 skin atop. It first leaked earlier this year when the Asus smartphone with model number ASUS_X00QD received WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA). The update brings software version V15.0410.1802.34 and apart from Android Oreo's new features, it includes improvement in power consumption, new "long screenshot" function, better UI, and more.

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.
