The brand new Asus Zenfone 2 has certainly been getting quite a lot of attention since it was first really unveiled in January, 2015. However, it is only recently that consumers around the world have started to learn when they will be able to physically get their hands on one of them and what we see is that Asus have decided to stagger the launch around the world.
So, What About The UK?
Countries in the Far East are already able to get their hands on this phone and North America is lined up for a spring time launch, but if you are in the UK you are going to have to wait a little bit longer as the phone is not due to hit the shelves until the summer. There is no exact date as such at this moment in time, but the phone is just weeks away from hitting the country and it is certainly going to be worth the wait.
What Is In The Phone?
This phone has a 5.5 inch full HD display, so the graphics that are on there are going to really show up very well indeed. It is powered by a 2.3GHz processor, so Asus have managed to bring some of the power from their laptops into the mobile phone world and it means that this phone is hardly lacking in power. It also has 4GB of RAM and there are two options for storage with both 32GB and 64GB being prepared for launch.
You will also get two cameras with the Zenfone 2 with the rear facing camera offering you 13 MP while the front one, specifically for those selfies, has 5 MP, so that is still going to give you some pretty good snaps. It is nice and clear although we admit that the cameras are not as good as you get on models by Samsung, but for the price of the phone they are above average, so they do offer some real value for money.
Overall, the phone is very easy to use, it is smooth in its operation, and it is undoubtedly rather powerful which means there is very little lagging whenever you are trying to do anything with it.
So, if you live in the UK:
- You can expect the Asus Zenfone 2 to be hitting stores in the summer.
- Asus have shown with this phone that there is more to them than just making laptops.
- The phone has a HD screen.
- It is powered by a 2.3GHz processor.
- It offers either 2GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage space.
- There are two cameras.
Asus are showing that they are serious players in the world of technology with this phone. It may not come with the highest specifications out there, but there is no doubt that this is a phone that has set tongues wagging and there is a certain buzz surrounding its launch.
For most people, this phone will be capable of dealing with whatever it is that they need to do without it being too over the top with its various features. This is a middle of the range phone, so expect a middle of the range price when it is finally released in the UK.
