Taiwanese gadget lovers get great news today as Asus have release all versions of the Asus Zenfone 2 in the country including the mush sought after 4GB RAM variant.
Since it was revealed at CES this year, the Asus Zenfone 2 has been the focal point of many a discussion, with most concerned about the pricing for the phone. At CES it wasn’t clear just how much the flagship 4GB RAM model would cost, however now the phone is on sale in Taiwan we have a much better idea of pricing and specifications.
In Taiwan fans of the phone will be able to choose from a number of different Zenfond variants based on the 5-inch and 5.5-inch handset. The base model 5-inch Zenfone 2 (ZE500CL) will ship with a 1.6Ghz Intel Atom Z2560, 2GB RAM, HD display and 16GB memory for NT$ 4990 ( $158).
Next in the range is the Asus Zenfone 2 (ZE550ML) which has a larger 5.5-inch panel but the same 720p resolution. RAM and memory are also unchanged but the processor is boosted to a 1.8Ghz Intel chip for NT$ 5,990 ($190).
If a 720p HD display isn’t enough for you then the Asus Zenfone 2 (ZE551ML) could be an option. It has a 5.5-inch 1080 display, 1.8Ghz processor, 2GB RAM and 32GB memory for NT$ 6,990 ($221).
Finally though is the top of the range Asus Zenfone 2 (ZE551ML) with a 2.3Ghz Intel Z3580, 5.5-inch FHD display, 32GB memory and 4GB RAM for NT$ 8.990 ($285).
The Zenfone 2 is set to launch in numerous locations around the world with the same specifications and possibly even a Mediatek and Snapdragon version too. Hopefully the Taiwanese retail price is an indication of what customers around the globe can hope to pay for the flagship phone.
