Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 32GB Model Available In India Now
Asus’ latest smartphone from the Zenfone, Zenfone 2 Laser, which was until now available in US for $200 is now finally available for sale in India exclusively via Flipkart. The tough as nails, or at least a chopping board, smartphone is one of the company’s many latest offerings (there are so many that if you have to remember their model numbers) and is available for $270, around 18,000INR in India.
The main difference between Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL) and other models in the same family is the huge 6-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution and features Corning Gorilla Glass 4 coating, which makes it extremely durable. For a budget phone, the Zenfone 2 Laser packs quite a punch with its 64-bit 1.7GHz octa-core Snapdragon 616 processor, Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM, specs quite similar to some of the top tier smartphones from other companies.
Furthermore, Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL) packs a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with laser autofocus, dual-LED (dual-tone) flash and full HD (1080p) video recording. There’s also a secondary 5-megapixel camera in the front. The phone has a pretty decent 3,000 mAh battery as well as dual-SIM and LTE support.
Zenfone 2 Laser will run Android 5.0 out of the box although an upgrade to Android 6.0 has already been confirmed for next year.
There are two models designated for India, a 32GB storage one with 3GB of RAM which is available for sale while a 16GB storage and 2GB RAM model is currently in the works although its release date isn’t known yet. Hopefully, the 16GB/2GB model will have the same color scheme as the 32GB/3GB one which is available in Glacier Gray, Sheer Gold and Glamour Red.
