Asus ZenFone V With 23-Megapixel Rear Camera Launched
The Asus ZenFone V smartphone has been released in the US in an exclusive partnership with telecom carrier Verizon. The new Asus smartphone also has model name V520KL, and the V in the smartphone’s name likely refers to Verizon as opposed to the number 5; because a phone by the name of ZenFone 5 already exists. As a Verizon phone, the ZenFone V will presumably not be released outside US markets. In spite of the fact that the device has been listed on Asus’ site, the carrier is yet to reveal pricing and availability, however we do realize that the device will be available in Sapphire Black when it goes on sale.
