Asus Zenfone 2 Will Obliterate Budget Phones With High-end Specs At $199

Asus is on the roll and there’s no doubt about it. It has started new year and CES2015 on a high-note with its new smartphones which are high-end yet affordable. I already told you about its Zenfone Zoom which features 3x optical zoom at $399. It announced another phone alongside, Zenfone 2 which packs all the high-end specs for just $199.

Okay, the name is little bit confusing because Asus already has Zenfone 4/5/6 in the market so they will have to extra care when marketing starts. It has taken a leaf out of LG’s book it seems as it has moved some keys to the back of the phone. And wait till you hear the specs.


The first time I heard its specs, I literally went into shock. I’m still wondering how it managed to put high-end config with such a cheap price tag. Depending on the country you live in, you’ll be able to get Zenfone 2 with either Intel Z3560 or Z3580 quad-core 64 bit processors, running at 1.8GHz and 2.3GHz respectively. It is also the first phone to have 4GB RAM inside though, there will be a 2GB version too available to pickup. It will sport a 13MP f/2.0 camera with dual tone rear flash and a 5MP f/2.0 wide angle camera on the front. And you can see all the pics on a big 5.5 inch FullHD display. It’s dual SIM phone and also boasts 4G LTE connectivity. It’ll get all its power from a 3000 mAh battery enabled with fast charging tech. Tell me, your head is not spinning. Specs are unbelievable.

You can pickup Zenfone 2 from March 2015.  These two phones have all the potential to push Asus upwards in 2015.
