Asus has just announced that the budget-friendly ZenFone C is making its way to Taiwan. While this new device doesn’t have the best specifications on the market (even for the low end), it should be a decent option for folks who don’t want to break the bank.
The ZenFone C has a 4.5-inch IPS LCD display with 480 x 854 resolution and a pixel density of 218ppi. It also comes with a dual-core 1.2 GHz Intel Atom Z2520 processor backed by 1GB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a VGA front-facing camera, a 2100mAh battery and ships with Android 4.4 KitKat. The ZenFone C also comes with only 8GB of internal storage though it supports MicroSD card expansion up to 64GB. This is a relatively small device, measuring 136.5 x 67 x 10.9 mm and weighing only 149g. The device is only 3G compatible, but that’s par for the course for sub-$100 devices. The best part? It will launch for NT$2,990 (~$95 US).
For anyone who lives in Taiwan, this seems like a decent option if you’re looking for a cheap Android device. Like I said, the ZenFone C isn’t the best option out there. But Asus has been known to put out some great hardware, even on their low-end devices. Head to Asus’ website for more information on the ZenFone C.
