Asus on Monday announced the pricing and availability of the US version of its ZenFone 2. First introduced at CES 2015, the 5.5-inch device will go on sale on May 19 with a $299 price tag.
The ZenFone is somewhat of a flagship handset and features some rather high-end specifications. Powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop, the smartphone packs a 2.3GHz quad-core 64-bit Intel processor with 4GB (yep, four) RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
Additionally, the phone is equipped with support for Cat 4 LTE-Advanced networks; a 3000mAh battery offers up a more than all-day battery.
For those looking to save, and cut a few corners, an alternate version of the device will be available, too. The $200 model includes a 1.8GHz processor with 2GB RAM.
The ZenFone 2 is compatible with AT&T’s network. Asus plans to sell the handset via Amazon.com, Newegg, Groupon, and B&H photo.
