Asus ZenFone 2 With 4GB RAM, LTE and Android 5.0 Lollipop Unveiled

The Taiwanese electronics company Asus took the stage at the CES 2015 and announced a number of upcoming products to be offered this year. One of those smart devices is the company's flagship phone for the year and it is called the ZenFone 2. This will be available in two versions and hopefully both variants will be released in the Philippines. The first one has a 2GB of RAM with 16GB of internal storage and the other one which I think going to be more attractive than the first because it has a whopping 4GB of RAM with a staggering 64GB of internal storage. 

 The 2GB RAM version bears model number ZE550ML and will be powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 processor clocked at 1.8GHz while the 4GB RAM one will house a different Intel Atom (Z3580) quad-core processor with 2.3GHz. Both are 64-bit SoC.

Apart from the RAM , processors and storage size the rest of the specs are the same on both versions of the ZenFone 2. Here we are looking at a phablet-sized device that bears a 5.5-inch Full HD display protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 layering. LTE is also aboard the smartphone together with Dual-SIM and Dual-LTE functionalities. 

Asus also said that the ZenFone 2 is equipped with fast charging technology which promises 0% to 60% battery charge in just 39 minutes. On the back panel sits the 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and some other fancy technical term like dual-color real tone flash, on front is a 5MP shooters. Asus boasts that these two cameras are powered by their own PixelMaster technology that gives the snappers more power especially when capturing moments during the night or in any low light environments. In fact Asus said that the cameras are able to capture more light or up to 400% brighter than the first ZenFone devices without the need of flash.

Another good thing about this ZenFone 2 is that it comes pre-installed with Android 5.0 Lollipop right off the box with ZenUI on top. Many of the newly announced devices today still come with Android Kitkat but this one already uses the newest Android version and that is something that many are looking forward to this smartphone.
