It has been quite awhile since ASUS took the wraps off the Zenfone 2 at CES back in January, alas we will finally be able to purchase one in North America tomorrow! This morning ASUS held a launch event in New York City for the Zenfone 2, and refreshed our memory on the specs and features for the phone. The flagship model of the phone has a quad-core 2.3GHz processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage, with a 1920×1080 5.5 inch display. The price of this top end model is a bargain at only $299, and yes that is off-contract!
If $299 is still too rich for your blood, you can pick up a low-end model for just $199. The lower-end model is still pretty impressive, packing a 1.8 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage. The good news is that the low-end model still retains expandable storage with a SD card slot. The phone will work out of the box with T-Mobile and AT&T in the US and comes in red, black, grey, and gold color options for the plastic back. The Zenfone 2 will be available in both configurations at a variety of retailers, including Amazon, B&H, and Newegg in the US and NewEgg, NCIX, Canada Computer and Memory Express in Canada.
ASUS also unveiled a kinda weird accessory for the Zenfone 2 called the Lolliflash. This accessory looks like a lollipop sticking out of your phone, and helps you get better lighting for those all-important selifies. In the pictures, it looks pretty strange in my opinion, but at $14.99 you know I’ll have to get one to check it out!
Who is interested in picking up a Zenfone 2 or the new Lolliflash accessory? I plan to pick one of these up, just not sure which configuration I will get. Look out for my unboxing and thoughts on my Youtube channel!
