Asus Zenfone 2

The CES 2015 in Las Vegas has started a few hours and already the very first very interesting news arrives.

Asus Zenfone 2 is the first nice surprise that this fair is reserving for us now. As many of you will remember, Asus presented in the 2014, the Zenfone line, a line of mid-high-end devices with three display cuts: 4, 5 and 6 inches.

Asus Zenfone 2 is equipped with specifications of all respect that we could safely define the first of the class, we speak of fact 5.5 inch FullHD IPS display with resolution 1920 1080 pixels x (403ppi) protected to a glass Corning Gorilla Glass 3, SoC Intel Atom Z3560 / Z3580 64-quad-core bit with clock ad 1.8GHz o 2.3GHz, 16 / 32 / 64GB Expandable internal memory via micro SD up to 64GB, rear camera da 13 mega-pixels with opening F / 2.0 with dual flash LED dual color Real Tone and technology pixelmaster, camera front da 5 mega-pixels with opening F / 2.0 with viewing angle of 85% for panoramic selfie, battery by 3000mAh with fast charging technology, dual SIM dual active, LTE 4G, 802.11 WiFi a / b / g / n / ac with WiFi direct, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE 4G and operating system Android Lollipop 5.0 with user interface ZenUI.

The size of this Asus Zenfone 2 I'm from 152.5 x 77.2 x 10.9-3.9 mm thick at the thinnest point near the display, in order to improve ergonomics. The Zenfone 2 weighs 170 grams.

Still in terms of size, the size-display ratio it is very good, returning a surface occupied by the screen equal to 72% of that total, with very thin frames of suns 3.3 mm.

As you may have noticed, a version will be available "premium”Of this Asus Zenfone 2, which will be equipped with 4GB di RAM coupled with 32GB di internal memory. There will be 3 memory cuts available: 16 / 32 / 64GB Expandable internal memory via micro SD up to further 64GB in all the configurations in which this Zenfone 2 will be launched on the market.

The rear camera is equipped with the already known technology pixelmaster which, through a particular hardware specification combined with the "pixel-merging technology“, Allows you to take night shots without brighter flashes, up to 400% more than lenses that do not adopt this technology.

A partial novelty, in fact, because this solution is already present on the Zenfone currently on the market.

One of the real news is the presence of Android Lollipop 5.0 Native, not so obvious aspect, because despite the operating system has been officially presented by Google, there are still many devices that are presented on the market with the KitKat 4.4 version, before the 5.0 Lollipop.

The user interface will be the classic ZenUI, not too invasive customization implemented by Asus.

As for the design, the line recalls that of the Zenfone we already know. The volume keys are placed on the back, in LG G2 / G3 style, while the aluminum body that completely covers the smartphone suggests Asus tablets or the HTC M8.

Apparently the colors will be five: gray, red, white, black and champagne.

The most interesting aspect of this Asus Zenfone 2 is the announced price of dollars 199 (About 167 €) for the version 2GB di RAM/16GB internal memory, a very aggressive figure for a device with specifications at the top and, above all, with Intel Atom 64-bit SoC.

The selling price of the 4GB / 32GB storage version has not yet been communicated, but we hope that the bar can stop the sales figure at no more than 349 dollars (about 292 euros), a price that would certainly be interesting and very aggressive. for the hardware it offers, especially by virtue of the 4GB of memory Dual-channel RAM.

We hope that this new interesting device will be sold in Italy at a reasonable dollar / euro exchange rate.
