ASUS releases new budget smartphone

ASUS has enriched its ZenFone line with the addition of the new budget-oriented ZenFone Go smartphone. The new handset measures 71 x 144.5 x 9.98 mm and weighs 135 grams.

The ZenFone Go is based on the MediaTek MT6580 processor with four Cortex-A7 cores inside that run at 1.3 GHz and has built-in Mali 400-MP2 graphics. The device also has a 5-inch IPS display that works at 720p resolution (1280 x 720 pixels), 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB or 16 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot for expansion (up to 64 GB), a rear 8 MP camera with laser autofocus, a front 2 MP camera for selfies, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a GPS receiver, a microUSB port and 3.5 mm audio jacks.

The main perk of the ZenFone Go is that it supports laser autofocus, a feature that we don’t see very often, but the device does not stop here – it has support for two SIM cards and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop under the ASUS Zen user’s interface.

The smartphone sells for around USD 109.
