ASUS is finally bringing the ZenFone 2 to America. The company announced pricing and availability for the flagship Android phone at a New York event on May 18, one day ahead of its U.S. release.
Starting on Tuesday, you’ll be able to order the ZenFone 2 in red, black, gray or silver from a variety of retailers, including Amazon, NewEgg, Groupon and B&H. The device starts at $199 off-contract for the cheaper model, which packs 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and an Intel Atom 3560 processor. For $299 you can grab the more powerful ZenFone 2, equipped with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, an Intel Atom 3580 processor and a BoostMaster Charger.
Both ZenFone 2 variants also offer a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 3000mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop along with ZenUI. The design is pretty nice too, featuring a metallic plastic frame and some pretty thin bezels.
We spent a bit of time with the ZenFone 2 back at CES and came away impressed. We’re definitely looking forward to really putting this device to the test.
