ASUS Zenfone 2 Deluxe, Selfie, Laser and Max launched at the ZenFestival 2015 Manila

DSC_0190


ASUS is back again and this time they brought here 4 new ASUS smartphones with different functionality, new tech and also a price range that is very reasonable. ASUS CEO Jerry Shen announced the pricing and the availability of their new ASUS Zenfones for the Philippines market at the Zen Festival 2015 at the Green Sun Hotel in Makati.


Their new Zenfone  line up still got the same specs we love, but this time they added a new tech that made their smartphones more fun to use. For example...

Zenfone 2 Deluxe comes with a stunning new multifaceted polygonal design, its a new way of showing beauty and power.

Zenfone Laser comes with laser auto focus tech in its 13 MP Pixelmaster camera, it brings clear photo and a fast camera shutter

Zenfone Selfie is one of my fave new model, because it comes with 13 MP camera for the rear and front of the phone, plus there's a dual color and dual LED Real Tone flash on both rear and front. No problem in taking selfies at the front camera even if its dark.

and finally the new Zenfone Max - a much higher model with a 5000 mah battery power.

The fun thing in all Zenfone devices is that they carry all the ASUS tech, the things that we loved in the 1st Zenfone 2 release few months ago. But for new models, there's a bit of enhancement.

All of them got the Full HD IPS display, the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for superior resistance to damage and finger prints, ASUS apps -- the usual apps we have for Zenfone 2 but they added new apps for the camera and also the gesture.

Scratch test with the Zenfone


The new Zenfone 2 gave us to choose which processor we want on our phone, this time they bring back Intel Atom for ZenFone 2 Deluxe and then Snapdragon processor for the remaining other new model. Even if it has a different processors, we still live to enjoy its PixelMaster camera, Trend Micro security and the ASUS ZenUI.

ZenFone 2 Deluxe is a new version of the ZenFone 2 with an ultra thin ergonomic arc design that is decorated with over 500 tessellated polygons. It looks so beautiful, neat, stylish and fashionable. I think ASUS really wants to tap the lifestyle and fashionable person who wants all aesthetics and power for their smart devices.

The ZenFone 2 Deluxe screen emits a sharp and vivid quality thanks to ASUS TruVivid technology for the color performance on a 5.5 inch Full HD IPS display with 403 pixel density and a wide 178 degree viewing angle. This will give you a lifelike images that will kinda float in your screen, and also the the brightnest of the screen can be viewed when under direct sunlight, just boost up the brightness to the highest level.

5.5 inch - PHP 8,695.00 (Octa Core)
5 inch -  PHP 7,695.00  (Quad Core)

This model is called Zenfone Laser because the camera is guided with a laser auto focus technology, not really a laser, but its an invisible non fatal laser that helps the camera to focus faster and also help you to snap a photo with the fastest auto focus and shutter.

I mentioned non fatal because some people thought that it’s a laser that is harmful haha. its just a red light. So relax.

For camera lovers, Im sure you will love the good specs of Zenfone Laser. And also the pricing is very competitive.
