ASUS will be unveiling the ZenFone 2 this May 18, as confirmed since the smartphone was shown off, with an interesting image, where it seems that an astronaut is holding ASUS’ latest flagship phone and taking a selfie while in space.
The flagship smartphone with mid-range specs has yet to arrive in the US and both ASUS and AT&T will be launching the ZenFone 2 still Intel-powered.
ASUS is proud to describe the ZenFone 2 as the ‘incredible coming to New York’ but remains to be seen if the specs are good enough to call it incredible.
ASUS is aiming this latest flagship to rival the high end devices from other brands like the HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4, and the Lenovo K80.
To review, these are the specs: 5.5-inch IPS LCD displayscreen, 13 megapixel camera, 5 megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, Gorilla Glass 3, 3000 mAh battery, and 1.8GHz Intel Atom Quad Core Z3560 processor. This particular model will still use an Intel chipset before ASUS starts using Snapdragon in future ZenFone devices. Phone is already available in some parts of the world (India, Malaysia,Taiwan, and Europe).
