Asus ZenFone 2 coming to India, pre-orders kick off today
Asus’ latest low-cost flagship has now formally launched in India with pre-orders starting today, exclusively through Flipkart. As we have seen in other markets, Asus will sell multiple variants of the Zenfone 2 with differing specs, though all the models sold will be powered by Intel Atom chips.
Starting with the entry-level member of the family, the Zenfone 2 (ZE550M) comes in at 12,999 INR or about $129. This model has an Intel Atom Z3560 processor with 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, microSD expansion, a 13MP rear cam, 5MP front cam, dual-SIM slots, a 5.5-inch 720p display, a 3,000 mAh battery, and Zen UI (based on Lollipop). Considering the pricing, this is actually a pretty impressive device — even if the relatively poor resolution, given the display size, will likely prove to be a deal breaker for some.
In addition to the ZE550M, there will also be three different configurations offered for the ZE551ML: a version featuring 16GB storage and an Intel Atom Z3560 CPU with 2GB RAM, a version featuring Intel Z3580 with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage, and a version with an Intel Z3580, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage. All three of these configurations have a 5.5-inch 1080p dislay, a 13MP rear cam, 5MP front cam, a 3,000 mAh battery, dual-SIM slots, LTE, and Zen UI (based on Lollipop). Pricing for these handsets are 14,999 INR ($236.76), 19,999 INR ($315.69) and 22,999 INR ($363.05) respectively.
