Asus has been an emerging smartphone manufacturer since the past couple of years, and its Zenfone series are much appreciated, because of their low price and good performance. In the ongoing CES event, Asus has released a new smartphone- Asus Zenfone 2, which has a stunning 4 GB of RAM.
The other specs of the Asus Zenfone 2 are awesome as well. It features a 5.5-inches Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) IPS capacitive display, which has a pixel density of 403 ppi. The handset is sleek, having dimensions of 152.5 x 77.2 x 10.9 mm and it weighs just 170 grams, which is pretty light given the dimensions. The phone will have 16/32/64 GB of internal memory options with either 2 GB or 4 GB of RAM and with an option of expandable storage option via microSD card upto 64 GB. For the processing power, there will be Intel Atom Z3580 or Intel Atom Z3560 chipset, compiled with Quad-core 2.3 GHz or Quad-core 1.8 GHz CPU , and PowerVR G6430 GPU for gaming and graphics. For the photography and videography options, this smartphone will have a 13 MP primary camera with autofocus and dual tone dual LED Flash which can capture videos upto 1080p @ 30 fps, and a 5 MP secondary camera for video calls and selfies. The juice will be provided by a NNon-removable Li-Po 3000 mAh battery. For the connectivity options, there will be LTE support, microUSB v2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, GLONASS and A-GPS. The phone will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system out of box with Asus’s ZenUI over it, and we can’t say anything about the future updates. The phone will be available five color options- Osmium Black, Sheer Gold, Glacier Gray, Glamor Red, Ceramic White.
As we can see, there are two versions available (three, if we consider the internal memory options), which will have different RAM, chipset and CPU, while rest of the specs will be same. The battery of this handset comes with Fast Charge Technology allowing you to charge the phone to 60 percent in just 40 minutes. The chipset used in this device is 64-bit, and the camera is claimed to be good as well, 400% better than some of its competitors and produces great images in low-light, as said by Asus. Special Transfusion and Illusion back covers will be available to radically change the style of the phone. The phone will only cost $199 without taxes, which is pretty cheap, but this might be for the 16 GB memory/ 2 GB RAM version. The 4 GB RAM version is expected a little expensive than that.
