A couple of days ago Asus Philippines teased us that the new ZenFone Go would be arriving in the Philippines and that more details would be posted soon. Today a new important information just got released on their Facebook page, the official Philippine pricing.
According to the post the ZenFone Go will be "soon available nationwide" for a price tag of just Php5,995. Remember that this phone falls under entry-level category and should be priced lower than most of the ZenFones around and expect a slight watered down specs. See the specs below and see if you would rather add a few thousand pesos and get the more high-end ones or simply select this ZenFone Go and save more bucks.
Asus ZenFone Go specs:
- 5" HD IPS display
- 1280 x 720 resolution, 294ppi
- Quad-core MediaTek processor
- 2GB RAM
- 8GB/16GB Internal storage

- Free 100GB of Google Drive for 2 years
- 8MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture
- 2MP front camera
- Android 5.1 Lollipop with ZenUI
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
- Dual-SIM, Dual-Standby
- 144.5 x 71 x 9.98mm
- 135 grams
- Black, White or Red
- 2,070mAh Battery
Actually, judging the specs the ZenFone Go offers versus its asking price, the device is not really that bad and super trimmed down in terms of specs. We still get the HD resolution with its 5-inch screen, a quad-core processor courtesy of MediaTek and 2GB of RAM. For the storage, there are two variants and I am assuming here that the Php5,995 is for the 8GB one. I will confirm this with Asus and get additional details if possible. But at least right now we already know the specs and pricing of the device.
