Powering the ZenFone 5Z is the comabination of an octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 3300mAh battery with BoostMaster fast charge support. There’s 64GB of storage built in along with a microSD card slot if you need more storage. There are dual SIM slots in there, too, as well as a rear fingerprint reader, face unlock, FM radio, and dual speakers rounding this spec list out.
The ASUS ZenFone 5Z is a GSM unlocked phone, which means it’ll work with carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S. If it’s piqued your interest, you can buy a ZenFone 5Z of your own from Amazon.
And then there’s the ASUS ZenFone Live, an Android Oreo (Go edition) phone that’s also a GSM unlocked device.
