 Zenfone 5 has a fast, energy-efficient Intel Atom Z2560 processor running at 1.6 GHz and also benefits from a brilliant 8-megapixel PixelMaster main camera with image stabilization. This couples a backside-illumination (BSI) sensor and wide-aperture f/2.0 lens with exclusive ASUS PixelMaster technology to capture digital photographs that are better than those snapped by many dedicated digital cameras. Its 2-megapixel front camera takes sharp selfies.  

PixelMaster's Low-Light Mode measures the available light and intelligently adjusts the pixel size to increase light sensitivity by up to 400% - meaning Zenfone 5 snaps great low-lights shots and videos even without the built-in flash.

 Exclusive ASUS PenTouch and GloveTouch technologies increase Zenfone 5's display sensitivity, making it possible to use the device with any stylus or even a gloved hand - so frustrations about how and when users can interact become a thing of the past.        

Zenfone 5 is available in four statement colors - Charcoal Black, Pearl White, Cherry Red, and Champagne Gold.
