Asus Live (G500TG), the newest member to its ever expanding smartphone lineup was launched today. Incidentally the Asus Live smartphone which was launched exclusively in Brazil doesn't fall under its Zenfone category, despite sharing the same specs as that of the Zenfone Go which was launched in India last year.
Asus however has added some cosmetic touches to the Zenfone Go including different colours around the frame to rechristen it as the Asus Live. Furthermore it comes with a Built-In TV feature which is rather common in phones available in the Latin American country.
The Asus Live (G500TG) sports a 5 inch HD (1280x720p) IPS display upfront along with a circular microphone hole and 2MP front camera. The front facing selfie snapper is further complimented by an 8MP f/2.0 rear unit which comes equipped with LED Flash. To power the Asus Live is a 1.3GHz quad core Mediatek 6580 SoC with Mali 400 MP2 GPU. This is clubbed with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of on board storage. Asus is also providing a slot for memory expansion via MicroSD card (upto 64GB). Furthermore the budget smartphone comes with a 2070mAH battery on the inside.
The Asus Live comes in Blue, Black, Pink, Yellow colours variants and is priced at 849 Brazil Real (Rs 14,200 approx.) This is markedly higher than the price of the Zenfone Go which retails in India at Rs 7,289.
