While Asus is better known for its ZenFone products, it hasn’t forgotten about its other smartphone lineup. That said, the company recently unveiled a new smartphone for the Pegasus sub-brand: the new Asus Pegasus 2 Plus X550.

This smartphone seems to be the sequel to the Pegasus X002 that was released in December 2014, and the upgrades are aplenty and substantial: Snapdragon 615 processor, 1080p display, 3GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel main camera. The Asus Pegasus 2 Plus X550 further offers a dual-SIM configuration and a large 3030mAh battery.

Like the original Pegasus, the Asus Pegasus 2 Plus made its first public appearance in China. It’s unlikely that the handset will become available in the international market, but we’re hoping it does. The pricing hasn’t been announced, but expect it to be affordable like the original Pegasus’ 799 Yuan (around Php5,800) price.
