New Delhi: Asus, which has been teasing the arrival of the Zenfone 2 in India for quite sometime now, has finally revealed the India launch date of the phone. The Taiwanese company has started sending out media invites for its April 23 event in New Delhi, where it will launch the Zenfone 2 for the Indian market.
The invite explicitly mentions the India launch of what the company claims to be the world's first 4GB RAM smartphone. The phone will come to India in three variants, says Asus.
According to Asus, the phone will have "the world's best Back Light (HDR) mode and fast charging technology - 60 per cent capacity in only 39 minutes."
With the Zenfone 2, the company appears to punch above its weight and takes on the likes of Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung's recently launhed Galaxy S6, S6 Edge. "Asus to yet again disrupt the Indian Smartphone market soon with Zenfone 2. Taking on Samsung S6 and Apple's recent launches, the device features 2.3GHz Intel Atom processor with 4GB RAM," says the company in a teaser note.
Taking a dig at Xiaomi, OnePlus and other smartphone makers who make their phones available under flash sales, the company says the phone will be available under open sale and buyers will not need to wait for flash sales or invitations.
Unveiled at CES 2015, the Asus ZenFone 2 is the company's new flagship phone that features an all-new design, 13-megapixel PixelMaster camera, and a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580 processor with 4GB RAM.
The phone has a brushed-metal finish and concentric-circle detailing. It has a curved case that tapers to an incredibly thin 3.9 mm at the edges. It comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS+ screen with an ultra-narrow bezel that reduces ZenFone 2's overall size.
According to Asus, its 3000mAh battery provides more than enough power to get through the day, and it also features fast-charge technology for dramatically-reduced recharge times.
