6-inch Asus ZenFone 2 Laser 6.0 Released in the Philippines

Asus just released one more ZenFone smartphone in the Philippines just before consumers go crazy shopping for the upcoming Christmas season, meet the ZenFone 2 Laser 6.0. This biggest ZenFone Laser variant is now officially launched in India and it looks like its Philippine release is coming very very near since Asus PH on Facebook has just posted a teaser for a new phone with caption that says "coming soon".

This device is the third ZenFone 2 Laser variant that we are going to have in the country, the first two were a 5.5-inch version and another in 5.0-inch screen (read my ZenFone 2 Laser 5.o review here). Now, this third one is a bit bigger coming in at 6.0" with IPS and Full HD display resolution as well as the with latest Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen protection.

The Asus ZenFone 2 Laser 6.0 shares almost the same specs as the ZenFone Selfie with the exception of its processor which is an octa-core Snapdragon 616 clocked at 1.7GHz which is slightly higher than Selfie's also-octa-core chip, and the front facing-camera where the Selfie has 13MP (hence, Selfie) while the Laser 6.0 only has 5MP. See a quick comparison below.

And of course the Laser family's main selling point, the Laser Autofocus. The laser autofocus system found on these devices (also on Selfie) is so fast that it can focus on a subject in just about 0.02 seconds, and since it’s laser-guided the quality of photos is much enhanced than the usual autofocus system. Additionally, it is equipped with Asus-developed PixelMaster technology. This is is an industry-leading Low Light mode that employs pixel-merging technology to capture up to 400%-brighter photos at night, or in low-light scenes, without the need for a flash.

  • 1.7GHz octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 616 processor

I am not sure yet if this ZenFone 2 Laser 6.0 is now available at Asus store (most likely it is not yet), but when it does it is going to be priced for just Php11,995 as you can see in the flyer screenshot above. Hopefully, that price is not final yet as it shares the same price as ZenFone Selfie (unboxing post) which I think is a bit more powerful and more specs-packed than the Laser 6.0.
