Seems like ASUS is proceeding with its plans to bring back more affordable devices to the market, as it has recently announced the Zenfone Live L1, the first from the company to come with a Go version of Android installed, which means you don’t get the usual bloatware that comes with ZenUI, but rather a pure and lighter Android experience.
Based on paper, the device is clearly targeted for the budget segment. It has a 5.5-inch HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, and is powered by the Snapdragon 425 processor along with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.
At the back, you’ll find a 13MP camera with PDAF, while the front boasts a 5MP snapper that also features facial recognition. The device runs on Android Oreo Go Edition, and packs a 3,300mAh battery.
Other features include 4G connectivity and Bluetooth 5.0. It comes in Rose Pink, Midnight Black, and White. Official pricing and availability is still to be announced.
