Design

A beauty to behold no doubt made completely from Aluminium Alloy and reflects light beautifully. There are no surprises here though, Asus is known for making sleek-looking devices and this isn’t an exception. The iPhone X-Like dual rear camera is quite a trend, its fun seeing almost every OEM going with what Apple made popular.

But in a unique twist, the dual-LED flash is no place near the middle of the dual shooters as it sits underneath them. The fingerprint scanner is just above the Asus logo in the middle, offering easy access to the phone and private apps. The device is very slim by the side measuring just 7.7mm in thickness. It weighs just 158g overall and available in Blue and Silver colours only.
