For the uninitiated, the ASUS ZenFone 5Q is a mid-tier option that is known as the ASUS ZenFone 5 Lite outside of the country. It will set its sights squarely on the OPPO F7, Vivo V9, and Huawei P20 Lite in the local smartphone space. Curiously, the said devices all sport notch displays, something this ZenFone (thankfully?) doesn’t have.

What it does have are four cameras that work independently from one another, hence ASUS’ claim that the ZenFone 5Q is the first true quad-camera phone on the market.

Whereas most multi-camera offerings include a secondary lens for taking portrait shots with a blurred background, the 5Q has wide-angle cameras on both sides, in addition to primary cameras with a higher megapixel count for regular photo and video work.
