The device has a sleek body with an 8.9mm thickness and weighs about 169 grams. The dual camera stands out in a rectangular camera module. It has got an appealing design that looks equally powerful and premium with the ‘ASUS Zenfone’ labeling perfectly smashed at the back. The LED flash is placed just next to the camera module. There is a tiny circular notch left-aligned at the top where it accommodates its selfie shooter.
