Of course Asus is not done yet with its new Zenfone 3 series of smartphones as the Taiwanese company just unveiled a fourth member of the series, Asus Zenfone Pegasus 3. And by the pricing of this new device, looks like this is the direct follow up installment to last year's Zenfone Go smartphones, that's because is bears a very low SRP compared to the first Zenfone 3 phones, at least in the market it will initially release.
Just like its first three brothers, the Zenfone Pegasus 3 also sports all-metal unibody design with its own Fingerprint scanner sitting on the back panel. However, it shares the same screen size as one of the base Zenfone 3 models, 5.2-inch with HD display resolution. Operating system? Thankfully, Android Lollipop is now a thing of the past for the new generation of Zenfone, this Pegasus variant is also to run on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Asus' latest ZenUI 3.0 skin on top.
The Asus Zenfone Pegasus 3 will be released in two memory configurations, 2GB RAM / 16GB storage and 3GB RAM / 32GB storage with of course microSD card support each in case users will need more room.
