ASUS surprises the public with three new smartphones
ASUS has surprised the public with three new smartphones that expand the company’s ZenFone line of such devices. The novelties are called ZenFone 2 Deluxe, ZenFone 2 Laser and ZenFone Max and will be available in India first.
The new ZenFone 2 Deluxe has the same specs as the Zenfone 2, which means the device sports a 5.5-inch display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, an Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 4 GB of RAM, PowerVR G6430 graphics, 64 GB of internal memory and Android 5.0 Lollipop. The only difference is in the chassis – the Deluxe version includes a “premium-crafted polygonal” design, which has more than 500 triangles joined for a “crystal miracle”. The device can be yours for USD 360.
The ZenFone 2 Laser is also similar to an existing smartphone – this time to the ZE500CL – but it comes with better cameras. This means the smartphone has a 5-inch display at 720p resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of expandable internal storage memory. The cameras have been bumped though – the rear one now has 13 MP of sensitivity (up from 8 MP), while the front one sports 5 MP (up from 2 MP).
The ZenFone Max is the smartphone that captures the most attention thanks to its huge battery with 5000 mAh of power inside. This is also the only smartphone that is all new. The device has a 5.5-inch display at 720p resolution, Gorilla Glass 4 protection, a Snapdragon 410 processor with four cores at 1.2 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage that can be expanded via the integrated microSD card slot. The ZenFone Max also has a 13 MP rear shooter that is accompanied by dual-LED dual-tone flash and laser-assisted autofocus. The front camera has 5 MP of sensitivity.
