It was a very long wait, so many rumors, so many unconfirmed reports and so many little updates. But now all of it has finally come to an end as Asus newest flagship device, the ZenFone 2, has just officially launched in the country.

The ZenFone 2 will be released in several versions and the one with ZE551ML model name (see specs above) will have three different variants and so is the pricing. If you would like to get the unit with 1.8GHz processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage it will cost you Php9,995. If you prefer the other with higher specs like 2.3GHz processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, that will set you back Php13,995 and then for the same version with 64GB internal storage, that would be Php14,995.
Again it is now available for purchase. We just don't know yet if Smart Communications or Globe Telecom will offer the device under postpaid plan. But for now the pricing you see above is for the off-contract units.
