Asus to launch ZenFone 2 in 5-inch and 5.5-inch variants

Asus at the CES pleasantly surprised the tech world by introducing two nifty devices Zen Fone2 and ZenFone Zoom, which became the talk of the tech community. Asus ZenFone 2 was considered to be one of the best smartphones introduced at the event, a combination of high specs and an affordable price tag. The company was planning to roll out Asus ZenFone 2 in March. The new reports suggest that the company plans to launch two variants, one with a 5-inch and the other one with a 5.5-inch display.

When Asus unveiled the device at the CES, it had a 5.5-inch display, at that point the company did not mention if it planned to introduce a 5-inch variant too. Asus in 2014 launched the ZenFone in 4-inch, 5-inch and 6-inch screens, so the company is sticking to tradition and keeping in view the fact that not everyone likes a big display. There are no details yet if the company plans to change any features in the 5-inch device, but we hope that along with the screen they also do not downsize its specs.

Lets’ have a look at ZenFone 2 features to gives us an idea of what we can see in the 5-inch variant. It will be powered by a 64-bit quad-core IntelAtom Z3580 processor, accompanied with a 4 GB RAM. The smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front facing camera. Asus ZenFone 2 will support a dual-sim capability and a 4G LTE Cat 6 connectivity and will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop along with Asus own Zen UI.

Asus ZenFone 2 retails at $199 and due to this people also call it ‘flagship on a budget’. The smartphone will be available in different markets in March and in India it will be available in Q2. As soon as we have some other information about the 5-inch variant of the ZenFone 2 and its availability in different markets we will update you about that. In the meanwhile have a look at the 5.5-inch display ZenFone 2, as look wise the company will not deviate for the 5-inch variant.
