China has just seen the launch of a new Asus smartphone which comes in the form of the ZenFone Pegasus 3. Equipped with a 5.2-inch display and a fingerprint scanner, this handset offers admirable specifications considering the price which it will be sold at.
The Asus ZenFone Pegasus 3 has been granted a tag of CNY 1299 (around $197 or Rs 13250). This applies to a 2GB RAM model which comes with 16GB worth of onboard storage space. A 3GB RAM variant of it also exists, and offers 32GB of storage. This space can be expanded further by means of a microSD card slot which cannot be used if you’re employing two SIM cards at a time.
The ZenFone Pegasus 3 sports a 5.2-inch 720p HD display which is covered with 2.5D curved glass. Its insides are highlighted by a 1.3GHz quad core MediaTek MT6737 processor which carries on it a Mali T720 GPU. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is its preferred OS, but ZenUI 3.0 has been tacked on top of the base software of course.
