Asus Zenfone 4 (A450CG) goes on pre-sale before Xiaomi Redmi 1S in India at 6,999 INR

The Xiaomi Redmi 1S is all set to launch in India later today, but another maker now known for its affordable offerings seems to be after the Xiaomi thunder.

We’re talking about Asus, the Taiwanese maker that has been pretty darn aggressive with its Zenfone series of phones. The maker has put up the Zenfone 4 for pre-order on Flipkart for INR6,999, which happens to be the exact amount the Redmi 1S will sell for.

  • 4.5-inch 854 x 480p display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2520 CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB on-board ROM
  • 8 mega-pixel rear camera
  • VGA front camera
  • 1750mAh battery
  • Android v4.4 kitkat

Very honestly, those specs don’t really look like they can match the Xiaomi Redmi 1S. Asus did well with the Zenfone 5 that gave the Xiaomi Mi 3 a tough fight, but we really don’t think the Zenfone 4 has it to beat the Redmi 1S.

Either way, do let us know what you think on the Redmi 1S vs. Zenfone 4 battle!
