Zenfone 2 with Intel Z3560 processor and 4GB RAM goes on sale for Rs 18,999

By May 11th, 2015 AT 12:57 PM

Asus is surely confusing the buyers with the large number of variants its Zenfone 2 series. The naming hasn’t been easy to understand either. But we can’t deny the fact that the value-for-money these variants bring with them is surely on the better side of things. To make complex things even more complex, Asus has now launched a new variant of the Zenfone 2 for Rs 18,999 with the model number ZE551ML-6J226WW.

Zenfone 2 Rs 18,999

What differentiates it from the variant that costs Rs 19,999 is the chipset. The new variant has an Intel Z3560 SoC doing duty under the hood with a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.8GHz. The one that is dearer by Rs 1,000 has an Intel Z3580 SoC ticking inside with a quad-core CPU clocked at 2.3GHz. Let us quickly take a look at what it offers:

Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML-6J226WW specifications:

  • 5.5-inch display, 1920 x 1080 pixels, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Glove Touch support
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system with new Zen UI
  • Intel Atom 3560 SoC, 1.8GHz quad-core CPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage which is expandable with a microSD card (up to 64GB)
  • 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM, 4G LTE, 3G HSUPA, FM Radio, GPS with 5 satellite connectivity
  • Wi-Fi ac/a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB port with USB Host, and 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • 3,000 mAh battery; 152.5 x 77.2 x 10.9 mm; 170 grams

It is available for buying right away on Flipkart and comes in silver colour only. The new variant makes the total number of variants with 4GB of RAM go up to 4. Asus is covering all its bases quite well and is filling the gaps across various variants by launching new ones. We just wish that the company follows a simpler nomenclature for its devices so that it becomes easier for the customers.

I am samsung galaxy s4 user and yesterday purchased Zenfone 2 ZE551ML 64 GB version over Note 3. This phone is seriously a beast. Bettery life, although, ain’t that good but its still enough considering the fast charging option which works pretty well in practice. I play a lot of games on phone and surf internet through out the day and I must say, this phone beats Galaxy S4 in all segments. Everyone looking for a genuine multimedia experience should consider this phone.

Barely used it for one day and singing praises already? You are in the over-excitement phase right now when everything looks sweet lol. Use it for a couple of weeks then share your experiences please. I’ve heard that the camera is pretty pedestrian and the screen legibility is poor, dull indoors and useless outdoors? Is it so? Do share some things you were genuinely disappointed with. Just having 4 GB of RAM doesn’t ensure that the phone will be perfect. I am pretty sure that about 1.5 to 2 GB of RAM will always be free given that android apps… Read more »

Does the second SIM support 3G or is it just 2G? Hope Reliance Jio is launched soon so that we can at leas see the 4G symbol on the screen, lol.
