More information about the unannounced Asus ZenFone 5 Max appears in benchmark

Asus unveiled the Zenfone 5Z, Zenfone 5 Lite and the Asus Zenfone 5 at the MWC 2018 global event held last month in Barcelona. The release of Oreo for ZenFone 4 Pro shows that the Taiwanese company is making good progress as far as updating ZenFone 4 and ZenFone 3 series to Oreo is concerned. The phone manages a decent single-core score of 1518 and multi-core score of 5386 when compared with devices with Snapdragon 600 series SoC that we have reviewed in past. The company released the Oreo update for ZenFone 4 in December previous year and for the ZenFone 3 in January. Apart from these, nothing else has been revealed by the Geekbench listing.

Considering the devices revealed during MWC 2018 and the older lineup, it is possible that Asus will launch the device with 64 GB and 128 GB internal storage variants. Apparently, the device has already received WiFi certification and has been spotted on Geekbench listing. And today, it is listed on Geekbench's website which makes it clear that the smartphone is going to announce very soon in the market. The smartphone is rumoured to succeed the ZenFone 4 MAX.
