A month ago, Asus Zenfone Go debuted on Asus’s website and Flipkart, and today, it has been officially launched in India for a price of Rs. 7,999. The smartphone will be available on Asus’s exclusive stores, leading retail stores across the country, and Flipkart.

Asus Zenfone GoThe phone features a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, and is powered by a 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6580 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with Asus’s in-house ZenUI on top, and has 8GB of internal storage onboard, which can be further expanded up to 64GB via microSD card. The Asus Zenfone Go features an 8-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, along with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone supports connectivity features such as dual-SIM, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and is backed by a 2,070 mAh battery.

 

Interestingly, the phone comes in a 16GB storage variant as well, but Asus has not revealed whether it will be launching it in India or not. The Asus Zenfone Go will be available in Ceramic White, Pure Black, and Glamour Red color options. The main drawback of the phone is that it lacks 4G connectivity, which is being provided by other manufacturers at cheaper price tags — such as Moto E (2nd Gen), Panasonic T45, and many more.

Commenting on the launch, Peter Chang, Regional Head South Asia & Country Manager, System Business Group, Asus India, said, “We are excited to announce the availability of ZenFone Go for our Indian users. Being the third largest home to smartphone users, India is a critical market for us and we intend to bring cutting edge products to consumers here, who seek power packed design sensibilities of a high-end smartphone at competitive prices.”
