Asus Zenfone 2 launched 4 variants, priced from Rs 12,999 to Rs 22,999
Asus has launched its new smartphone – the Asus Zenfone 2 – in four variants in the Indian market. The prices for the Zenfone 2 start at Rs 12,999 for the base model and go up to Rs 22,999 for the top variant.
The phones will go on sale in India as a Flipkart exclusive. The two lower-priced versions are already up for pre-order on Flipkart with a tentative release date of May 13, 2015. All the four variants feature 5.5-inch display but other core specifications vary.
The base Zenfone 2 model (ZE550ML) features a HD display with a 1.8 GHz processor, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage.
The higher versions of the Zenfone 2 bear the model number ZE551ML. The variant that is priced at Rs 14,999 has a 1080p full HD display while much of the other specifications remain similar to the ZE550ML. Another version of the model ZE551ML comes with a 2.3 GHz processor, 4 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM and is priced at Rs 19,999.
The top-end Asus Zenfone 2 carries a price tag of Rs 22,999 and includes more storage (64 GB) than the Rs 19,999 version.
According to Asus, the Zenfone 2 has “the world’s best Back Light (HDR) mode and fast charging technology – 60 per cent capacity in only 39 minutes.”
The phone has a brushed-metal finish and concentric-circle detailing. It has a curved case that tapers to an incredibly thin 3.9 mm at the edges. It comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS+ screen with an ultra-narrow bezel that reduces ZenFone 2’s overall size.
According to Asus, its 3000mAh battery provides more than enough power to get through the day, and it also features fast-charge technology for dramatically-reduced recharge times.
Apart from the Zenfone 2, Asus has also launched five accessories for the phone that include a flip cover (Rs 15,99), ZenEar earphones (Rs 599), ZenPower power bank (Rs 1,499), Lolliflash (Rs 799) and ZenFlash (Rs 1,599).
