Asus previously revealed that two versions of the Zenfone 4 would be made available in India, but it’s only now that it has started offering the A450CG model. Compared to the A400CG variant which has been on sale since the series’ launch back in July, the new one offers a larger display of 4.5 inches and there are a few other modifications to the hardware.
Design-wise, the Asus Zenfone 4 A450CG looks no different from its smaller sibling and it also runs on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. Compared to the latter that offers a 5MP rear camera and a 16000mAh battery, the new model packs an 8MP snapper and a 1750mAh cell.
The stronger battery can deliver a total of 13 hours talktime or around 255 hours on standby. Apart from the aforesaid changes, no other alterations have been made to the smartphone. The display is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and is accompanied by a VGA snapper.
On the inside, there’s the same 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2520 processor doing the heavy lifting. The device also sports 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, a microSD card slot and dual SIM support with HSPA+ connectivity.
