ASUS Zenfone 2 arrives in Europe with €179 price tag
Following its launch in Asia, the ASUS Zenfone 2 is now making its way to Europe, with prices starting at just €179, ranging up to a still modest €349. The big talking point with the Zenfone 2 series is the option for a colossal 4GB or RAM, but the range has plenty more to offer too.
As we previously covered, there are a range of Zenfone 2 variants in production and three of them are heading to Europe.
The most expensive is the ZE551ML variant, which costs €349 and comes with the 4GB of RAM, a 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 1080p 5.5-inch display, a 13MP rear camera, 32GB of internal memory and a 3,000mAh battery. For €249 you can grab the ZE550ML, which sports a 720p 5.5-inch display, 1.8GHz Z3560 SoC, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, with the same camera and battery as the most expensive model.
The more budget friendly option is the ZE500CL model, which features a 1.6GHz Atom Z2560 processor, a 720p 5-inch display, 2GB of RAM, 8GB storage, 8MP rear camera and a smaller 2,500mAh battery. All of the handsets feature a microSD card slot and Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
France will be the first country to receive the Zenfone 2, ahead of a wider rollout across the region. Asus France is currently offering the ZE55ML variant (the 4GB one) for €299, for a limited time only. A US store release is stated for this spring and an Indian launch date is expected on April 13th.
