You re probably confused on which smartphone to buy Samsung S6/ Samsung S6 Edge/ Apple iPhone 6 and so on. ASUS Zenfone 2 reaching Indian market by last week of April! Be careful on what you chose!
The launch timeframe is in line with earlier reports. Asus has again targeted tier-one flagships like Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, as well as the Apple iPhone 6. Last week, it also took digs at the flash sales employed by rival companies like Xiaomi, and OnePlus.
Asus unveiled the Zenfone 2 at CES earlier this year. The flagship flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 1080 pixels) IPS display, and is powered by a 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 quad-core 64-bit processor, and paired with 4GB of RAM.
The handset also features a 13-megapixel primary camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3,000mAh battery with fast charging capabilities, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, LTE support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. On the software front, it runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop wrapped under the company s Zen UI.
Asus however isn t making it easy for buyers as it has five variants of the Zenfone 2 on offer, ranging from $322 to as low as $160. The confusing bit is that all the models are called Zenfone 2, but have a string of alphanumerics that can somewhat make users understand what model they are buying. You can check out a detailed comparison of all the models here. While Asus has all but confirmed that it will be launching the Zenfone 2 variant with 4GB of RAM in India, it will be interesting to see if it launches the other variants as well.
