Taiwanese consumer electronics giant, Asus has launched a budget smartphone dubbed as Zenfone 5 Lite.
As the name suggests, Zenfone 5 Lite is a watered-down version of the original Zenfone 5 (A501CG), which was launched earlier this year. They differ in display, front-camera, CPU, RAM and battery specifications.
The former features 5.0-inch qHD (560x940p) display, 0.3-megapixel camera, 1GB RAM, Intel Z2520 series processor and a 2,500 mAh battery, whereas the latter sports 5.0-inch HD (1280x720p) display, 2.0-megapixel snapper on the front, 2GB RAM, Intel Z2560 series chipset and a 2,110 mAh cell.
Other stipulated specifications include Android 4.4 KitKat OS, 1.2GHz Intel processor and an 8.0-megapixel camera on the rear-side.
Asus Zenfone 5 Lite Price and Availability Details:
According to YugaTech, the new Asus Zenfone 5 Lite will be made available in Charcoal Black, Pearl White and Cherry Red colour models initially in the Philippines for 5595 Pesos (around $124 /€100/ ₹7,700). As of now, there is no official word on whether Asus will launch Zenfone 5 Lite in India and other emerging markets or not.
But going by Zenfone 4, 5, and 6 series' success in India, the company is more likely to launch the new model to give more options in the Zenfone series for the consumers in the sub-continent.
