Asus Zenfone 2 Launched in Three Variants

by Nivedit MajumdarApril 28, 2015

After the popularity garnered by the first generation Zenfone, Asus has recently launched the second generation of its phone series in India. The Zenfone 2 that was launched by the company on 23rd April comes in multiple variants to target various users.

More than anything, the one feature which makes this lineup truly stand out is the RAM capabilities. The ZE551ML version – the higher end one – comes with a whopping 4GB of RAM on board, making it the first phone in India to have a beefy 4 gigs of RAM.

This article covers all the different variants of the Zenfone 2, along with their features and specs.

DESIGN

The thing common to all the variants of the Zenfone 2 is the overall design of the phone. The Zenfone 2 has taken some inspiration from LG’s flagship lineup, and has placed the volume rocker buttons at the back of the phone beneath the camera. It is clearly an interesting position in term of ergonomics, and this change would be welcome by users.

The display differs according to the variants. While the ZE551 ML versions come with a 5.5 inch Full HD display, the ZE550 ML comes with a 5.5 inch HD display.

COMMON SPECIFICATIONS

All the variants come with a 13 Megapixel Rear PixelMaster camera with f/2.0 aperture and 5 element lens. There’s also a 5 Megapixel front facing camera in all of the variants. The battery capacity on all the variants is 3000mAh. All are dual SIM variants and come with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

They come with various software features such as double tap to wake, Zen Motion Touch and Gesture Control support. All are dual SIMs supporting 4G and with dual active feature. All the variants have a dual tone flash for the camera and also have a 52-megapixel Super Resolution mode for the main camera. As for the front camera, it has a 85 degree wide angle lens on board.
