Asus recently unveiled the Zenfone 4, Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 6 handsets. The Zenfone is a new line from Asus and all handsets in the current offering run Android 4.3 and sport dual-core Intel Atom processors. The Zenfones are obviously not meant to be flagship devices nor are they meant to compete with top phones from other brands. They are low-range phones that cater to those with limited budget.
The Asus Zenfone comes in 4-inch, 5-inch and 6-inch sizes.
Unlike the Padfones from Asus, the Zenfone 4, Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 6 are stand-alone phones. The Zenfone 4 sports a 4-inch 800 x 480 LCD display, a 1.2GHz Atom chip, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front camera. The Asus Zenfone 5, on the other hand is a bit better. It rocks a 5-inch 720p display and offers pen and glove support. In the heart of the Zenfone 5 is a 2GHz Atom processor. It packs an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing shooter. The Asus Zenfone 6, finally, has a 6-inch 720p display and a 13MP rear camera.
The Asus Zenfone 4 is priced at $99. The Zenfone 5, on the other hand, is priced at $149 while the Zenfone 6 is priced at $199. These phones could land in Philippine shores and hopefully they remain cheap even after taxes are considered.
