Asus has now announced the successor to the Asus Zenfone Live smartphone, the Asus Zenfone Live L1. The Taiwanese company has added some major upgrades to the second generation handset including an 18:9 display on the front and a 3000mAh battery under the hood. The Zenfone Live L1 has been launched in the Philippines, but there are very high chances of Asus launching it in the Indian market too at an aggressive price. The Asus Zenfone Live L1 boasts polycarbonate body and comes in Space Blue, Rose Pink, Shimmer Gold, and Midnight Black colour options. Asus has been very aggressive with its pricing strategy in 2018, and the same continues with the Zenfone Live L1 because it retails for PHP 5,995 (approx. Rs 7,600). But the Indian price of the smartphone is expected to be lower than the price in the Philippines.
