ASUS unveils Zenfone 2

Taiwanese-smartphone maker, Asus, on Wednesday unveiled ZenFone 2, the flagship smartphone from the company. With an all-new ergonomic design, the device brings in several aesthetic refinements, including a curved case that tapers to an incredibly thin 3.9mm at the edges, that lends it a bold yet elegant look. 

Powered by an up to 2.3GHz 64-bit Intel Atom processor Z3580 and a 4GB RAM, the Zenfone 2 promises to provide up to seven times faster gaming performance than its predecessor. It has a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display, 13MP/5MP PixelMaster cameras and 4G/LTE connectivity. 

With the much-talked about 4G connectivity around the corner, the 4G/LTE enabled Zenfone 2 is likely to score in the country. The 2GB RAM/16GB ROM variant of the gadget has been priced at $199, a company release stated. We expect the device to hit Indian markets soon.
