Taiwan-based smartphone maker Asus released its affordable smartphone series in the form of Zenfone in India last month and today the smallest one of the series - the Zenfone 4 has already been listed on pre-order at the price of Rs. 6,999.
The users can pre-order the samrtphone from online retail site Flipkart at the same price. However, the Asus Zenfone 4 (A450CG) would ship in the first week of September, which is next week.
Asus Zenfone 4 (A450CG): Key Specifications
The Asus Zenfone 4 features a 4.5-inch (854 x 480 pixels) capacitive multi touch display with Corning gorilla glass 3 protection. It is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2520 processor with PowerVR SGX544 GPU coupled with 1GB RAM. It runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat) with company's Zen UI slapped over it. In the imaging aspect, buyers will get to see 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 0.3MP (VGA) front-facing snapper.
Talking about the internal storage capacity, users will get an 8GB internal memory, which would be expandable memory up to 64GB via microSD. Connectivity options include 3G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and a Dual SIM with dual standby (micro SIMs). It is powered by a 1750 mAh battery.
The latest smartphone from Asus might be the cheapest smartphone with Android KitKat OS and 8MP rear camera. But since the Indian smartphone market is quite populated with devices with same price range, the Zenfone 4 will have to contest a lot of them in the market.
At the launch event last month, GizbOt had also done a hands on video of the phone, which you can watch below:
