The wait is finally over. Fans and enthusiasts who’ve been yearning ever so strongly for the Asus ZenFone 2 can get the smartphone in local stores this week. Four models are available, with the cheapest one priced for only Php7,995.
We’ve had our fair share of fun during the launch of the Asus ZenFone 2 last Saturday. We even got to see in action the different features of the smartphone. To recap, this flagship device is a 5.5-inch Android 5.0 Lollipop handset powered by an Intel Atom Z3580 processor. Dual-SIM capable, the ZenFone 2 offers Full HD resolution, 4GB of RAM and 13-megapixel PixelMaster camera.
Note that the aforementioned specs are for the top-tier ZE551ML model. The 18W adapter for BoostMaster fast charging technology is also only bundled with the 32GB and 64GB models. Fast charging is available for the other models, but the 18W adapter is separately sold.

As seen in the table above, the most expensive variant costs Php14,995, which is even cheaper than the official regional price introduced in Indonesia. Interestingly, the ZE550ML model wasn’t mentioned during the launch. What we got instead is the ZE550CL.
All units come with a one-year warranty from Asus Philippines.
