AT&T has revealed that the ASUS ZenFone 2E will be joining GoPhone, its line up of prepaid smartphones. The device has a price point of $119, with AT&T’s prepaid plans starting at $45 per month for unlimited talk, text, and 1.5GB of data.
The ASUS ZenFone 2E features a 5-inch IPS HD display, a dual-core Intel Atom CPU, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, and a 2,500mAh battery. AT&T says users should be able to get 20 hours of talk time and up to 8 hours of stand by time out of this device.
The device can be purchased at brick-and-mortar stores Walmart and Target for $119. It should arrive at AT&T locations on July 24, with availability at Best Buy starting on August 2.
Prepaid phones are an economical option for those that can’t afford the higher rates that come with flagship devices and full-fledged data plans. However, prepaid devices have never been that great in terms of hardware, but the selection is slowly getting better with more impressive devices on the horizon.
