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.
