Included in the launch is the Zenfone 5Q, the regular Zenfone 5 as well as the flagship Zenfone 5Z. ASUS has promised during the launch event in Barcelona that they’ll be returning to their roots as a provider of devices that “empower luxury” to their users. ASUS’ previous phones have not replicated the company’s earlier success with their second generation ZenFones, something that they’re trying to change with the new batch of devices.

ASUS has tagged the price of the ZenFone 5Z, the top-tier device at just EUR 479, which comes out roughly to around 30.7K in our currency. We’re cautiously optimistic with the pricing and if ASUS actually manages to deliver on their promise, then they’ll finally have a flagship contender this year.

ASUS has pegged the official launch of the phones on April 14.
