Also, the exact release dates of these phones are not yet to be announced.

The price of the models will be, according to the company will be probably around half of the iPhone X price. But even if there is no exact announcement about the price of the new model, there is a speculation that the 5Z will start at $499.

Conclusion

There are many smartphone companies are known for borrowing the design and ideas of the Apple but none of these companies have a big distribution outside of Asia in which the iPhone is known to be costly or expensive. And basically, Asus is one of them that is trying to rebuild the iOS within the framework of the Android.

There is not really any need to deny the fact that the new models of the Asus are both looking like the iPhone X. The specifications like the camera placement and the screen really scream the handset of the Apple and if you want a device that really looks like the iPhone but with the twist that it runs on Android then you might want to have this one.

Because they have no real announcement in regards to the price of these models, we can’t determine if this will be one of the best handsets this year. We just have to wait for further announcement.
