We first saw the Asus Zenfone 2 at MWC 2015 held in Barcelona, Spain. And after a lot of rumors, speculations and expectations, the Asus Zenfone 2 has been finally brought into India. The Asus Zenfone 2 had created a pretty huge buzz, especially in markets such as India. The main reason being that it was expected to be a monster of a Smartphone with quite an affordable price tag. However, some reports earlier claimed that, the pricing of the Asus Zenfone 2 may not be as sweet as we expect it to be.
However, ending all those speculations, Asus has finally announced their flagship Asus Zenfone 2 at a special launch event in Delhi. And actually Asus did not just introduce a single flagship, but actually four different variants.
The Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML Android Smartphone features a 5.5 inch Full-HD resolution display with a PPI of 403 and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, a 2.3 GHz quad core processor, 4 GB of RAM, 13 MP primary camera with dual LED flash and a 5 MP secondary camera as well. The device is powered by a 3000 mAh battery which is non-removable. This variant comes in a 32 GB internal storage option priced at RS. 19,999 and a 64 GB internal storage variant as well, which is priced at RS. 22,999.
Now, there is also a 2 GB RAM variant of the Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML that features a 1.8 GHz quad core processor, comes with just 16 GB of internal storage and is priced at RS. 14,999 and also features all other internal hardware specifications similar to that of the 4 GB RAM variant mentioned above.
The company also released the Asus Zenfone 2 ZE550ML variant of its flagship device, which is much more budget friendly and is priced at just RS. 12,999. This iteration of the Asus Zenfone 2 features a 5.5 inch 720p HD display at a PPI of 267, a 1.8 GHz quad core processor and then all the same hardware specifications as its other siblings.
Apart from the small minor hardware specification differences, all the four iterations of the Asus Zenfone 2 are pretty much the same. All four devices feature a 3000 mAh battery with quick charging technology that can charge up the device from 0-60 percentage in just about 40 minutes, when charged with the cable and power adapter included in your Asus Zenfone 2 packaging.
And also, all these devices feature Cat 4 4G LTE connectivity (both TDD and FDD) along with Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi and USB OTG as well. Also, apart from the Corning Gorilla Glass protection that the screen on the Asus Zenfone 2 features, it also feature Glove Touch support which allows you to use the Smartphone while wearing gloves as well.
However, there are some models that were not announced in the event which include the Asus Zenfone 2 ZE500CL with a 5 inch display of HD resolution which we were expecting at the event and also the 32 GB internal storage option of the 2 GB variant of the Asus Zenfone 2 ZE550ML is also missing.
All the variants of the Asus Zenfone 2 that was announced in India will be sold exclusively via Flipkart soon, and the pre-orders have already started.
