The Galaxy S9 has 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with the company's ZenUI 5.0 skin on top.

The 5 comes in two versions, one 4GB RAM/ 64GB internal storage, the other 6GB RAM/ 64GB internal storage.

Dual cameras are all the rage these days, so it's no surprise to see a dual-camera configuration on the ZenFone 5Z. Oddly ASUS has not yet given MP size on the second of each of these camera combinations.

On the back of both phones is a dual camera system, one of them a 12-megapixel shooter.

The device features nearly all types of Connectivity options such as 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, GPS/ A-GPS, FM radio, USB Type-C, and 3.5mm headphone jack.
