The Zenfone 2 was one of the biggest announcements at CES at the beginning of this year.
It promises powerful hardware in a budget package. In order to diversify its component suppliers list, Asus is set to release more version of the Zenfone 2, replacing the Intel chipset with both Qualcomm and Mediatek offers.
The original Zenfone 2 is equipped with either an Intel Atom Z3580 or Z3560 and 4GB or 2GB of RAM.
The Qualcomm variant will sit in a lower-priced market segment, and will become available in the second quarter of 2015 and finally, the Mediatek-powered option will be targeted at markets like India where LTE capability can be omitted.
Several storage options will be available from 16GB up to 64GB, when it comes to cameras you can count on a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP frontal camera, and it will be powered by a 3000 mAh battery.
Taiwan will be the first target of the Zenfone 2, then Hong Kong, Singapore, China and finally and surprisingly France in March. Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Italy and the US will follow suit in April, while Japanese folks may get it in May. Brazilians will need to be even more patient and wait until June.
