ASUS has launched Zenfone V but has some exclusive features that may hinder an international release, more so, for those who are not in the same boat with those who are Verizon users. Nevertheless, the Taiwan-based multinational computer and phone hardware and electronics company has released its market of Zenfone V in the US and hopes to capture as many Verizon users and attract non-users as well. ASUS has maintained its usual back panel that contains the single rear camera and dual LED flash with its distinctive Verizon brand.

ASUS made a whole new model of Zenfone V under the model name V520KL, GSMArena reports. Zenfone's are not much of an AMOLED fan as only Zenfone V and a few model gets its full HD AMOLED display; while its capacitive buttons and the fingerprint scanner is situated below its 5.2" display. Power buttons and volume rocker stays on the right-hand side and the slot for microSD and nanoSIM cards on the left-hand side of the smartphone.

In a report from Business Today ASUS reintroduced their flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 820 from last year with this year's Zenfone V including a 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for memory cards that can hold up to 256GB. As stated earlier, Zenfone V has a single rear camera with 23MP Sony IMX318 sensor and a front-facing 8MP camera. Incredible features of the rear camera include a 0.03 second focusing through laser, subject-tracking auto-focus because of its optical and electronic image stabilization and phase detection.

Zenfone V goes with a 3,000mAh battery and can support PowerDelivery 2.0 via USB-C. Despite it being carrier-exclusive and connects to Verizon's LTE network only, Zenfone V is already pre-installed with Android Nougat 7.0 but it is still under the ZEN UI 3.0. Although the features are already released by ASUS on its official website, updates on its price and availability are still to follow.
