ASUS has finally sent out invites for its Zenfone 2 event. The announcement happens on the 23rd of April and hopefully we get to know details about the device’s availability as well.
The version of the smartphone that ASUS plans to launch at the event is clearly the high-end one with 4 GB of RAM.
It is the same smartphone that was displayed at CES 2015 earlier this year along with Intel innards. But we are still a bit unsure as we did hear rumours about Asus switching to MediaTek and Qualcomm chipsets. This is because ASUS did mention at CES that it will push out multiple versions of the Zenfone 2 with different configurations.
Still then, we do have the hardware specs from CES:
We get a 5.5 IPS 1080p display with a pixel density of 403 ppi and a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 on top
Inside, we get a 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 chipset and a massive 4 GB of RAM on the high-end version (the lower specd version sports 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage)
The camera department consists of a 13 MP primary snapper and a True Tone LED flash; while a 5 MP snapper takes care of selfies up front
The Zenfone 2 includes a 3,000 mAh battery with fast charging tech that will get you up and running from empty to 60% in 39 minutes
Pricing of the high-end model mentioned above is expected to be around Rs 20,000 bracket, while the budget configuration is said to be around the Rs 12,000 mark.
