Asus is reportedly planning to launch three new Zenfone series handsets in India next week. Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe, Zenfone 2 Laser and Zenfone Selfie will be released at ZenFestival 2015, New Delhi on 6 August, reported BGR India.
Zenfone 2 Laser and Zenfone Selfie were originally unveiled in Computex 2015, Taipei last month, whereas the Zenfone 2 Deluxe is said to be a premium phone.
Zenfone 2 Deluxe:
It is expected to flaunt a more than 500 tessellated triangles, giving crystal like effect on the cover similar to Oppo Mirror 5. On the front, 5.5-inch full HD display and run on the Android 5.0 Lollipop backed by 2.3GHz Intel Atom processor Z3580 with PowerVR G6430 GPU, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage capacity (expandable via microSD card).
It also features a 13mp camera on the back, a 5mp snapper on the front and a 3,000 mAh battery inside.
Asus Zenfone Laser:
It sports a 5.0-inch display and houses Snapdragon 410 series chipset, 2GB/3GB RAM and 16GB/32GB memory.
Key attribute of the new Asus Zenfone model is that it boasts a 13mp camera with an advanced value-added Laser auto-focus feature.
For the uninitiated, this laser-based auto-focus feature measures the distance between the subject and the camera using a laser beam enabling quick capture of good quality photos even under low-light conditions. LG G3 (2014) and G4 (2015) are the only tier-1 branded smartphones in the industry to house this feature.
Asus Zenfone Selfie:
As the name suggests, Zenfone Selfie's USP is its front camera. It boasts of a 13mp camera with f/2.2, 24mm wide angle , five-prism Largan lens, Toshiba 1/3.2-inch sensor, Dual LED real-tone flash, HDR and low-light selfie feature.
And on the rear-side, it comes equipped with equally superior 13mp camera with Laser auto-focus feature like we see in Zenfone Laser device. It also features a 64-bit class Snapdragon 615 Octa-core CPU, 2GB/3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB inbuilt memory and a 3,000 mAh battery.
