In case you are not aware of it yet, Asus Philippines has officialy launched and released the new and much improved Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5S in the local market. Now if you are already familiar with so many of Asus' highly successful Zenfone devices, you may have already guessed it right that this is not a completely brand new Zenfone.
It is actually the same Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 2 with 5.5-inch HD screen display, only that it has much bigger and enhanced specs. Below are the infographics I got from our friends over at Asus Philippines giving us additional things we may not know yet about this new and exciting smartphone. And this also gives us a bit of new insigts as to what the "S" stands for.
S for Superior: DO MORE. Most of the Zenfones we have on the market only sports 2GB of RAM, but this particular variant of Zenfone 2 Laser has 3GB RAM right out of the box and this is one of the enhancements on this device. More RAM means the phone is capable of running multiple apps and functions at the same time without lagging or even slowing.
S for Stunning: PLAY MORE. Another upgrade on the Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5S is the internal storage size, now at 32GB, which is twice bigger than most Zenfones in the wild. This allows us to store more photos, videos and other files without the need to get an additional memory card. It still supports microSD card up to 128GB though.
S for Sweeter: ENJOY MORE. Some key specs have been upgraded but the price remains under Php9K mark. Asus even claims that it is about Php4,000 cheaper than other smartphones sporting the same specs. Up until today, Php4K is still a lot of money and there are a number of things you can spend this amount of money on and enjoy, such as movie date, coffee or new clothes.
S for Seamless: ENJOY MORE. One of the things I love about the Zenfone series is its very good audio quality. The ZenEar, a pair of earphones that come in the box, it's such a nice audio accessorry that I use everyday. And the good news is, you can also use other-branded earphones or bluetooth speakers to enjoy more your favorite songs, TV series or movies stored in your Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5S. In case, you don't want to spend your Php4k on stuff mentioned above, you can buy new earphones, Asus ZenPower with 10050mAh power and bluetooth speaker instead.
S for Smarter: ADDED VALUE. Another big update here is the processor, from quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor to octa-core Snapdragon 615. That should provide us a noticeable improvements on many of its flagship features and functionality, like running heavy apps, user interface navigation, cameras and many others. If you are into mobile photography, you will definitely be satisfied with its Laser Autofocus technology, it's a blazingly fast autofocus system that works as fast as 0.03 seconds.
