The Asus Zenfone 2 was a showstopper at the CES 2015 earlier this year as it comes with a whopping 4GB of RAM and other great features. Well, there was a second model as well, with just 2GB of RAM and the company only dropped pricing for this version which is said to retail at $199.
The high-end Asus Zenfone 2 will of course sell at a much higher amount and thanks to it going on sale in Taiwan, we know what to expect when it becomes globally available. GizChina is reporting that the 4GB version is selling for NT$ 8990 which amounts to approximately US$285 after conversion.
That’s just $86 more than the base version which isn’t all that expensive. The normal model packs a 1.8GHz Intel processor, and 2GB RAM, while the beefed up Asus device comes with a 2.3GHz quad core Atom Z3580 SOC and double the RAM.
Both phones look identical in design and the remaining features are more or less the same. They run on Android 5.0 Lollipop and offer a 5.5-inch 1080p display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Additionally, the phones have 4G LTE, Wi-Fi ac, dual SIM support and a 3000mAh battery.
