Zenfone 2 Available for order in from RM599

The long waited Asus Zenfone 2 is officially launched in Malaysia on 9th May 2015 with a price tag from as low as RM599. 

The Asus Zenfone 2 comes with 4 different variantions for Malaysia market, the ZE551ML with 2 specs built, then follow by the mid-range model ZE550ML and lastly the most affordable model ZE500CL. 

The top range ZE551ML came with 2 different spec built in performance wise, a higher specs and a lower spec variant. The major difference are the higher spec ZE551ML is powered by the Intel Atom Z3580 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz with 4GB RAM while the lower spec version is powered by a slower Intel Atom Z3560 quad-core Processor clocked at 1.8GHz and it also built with a smaller memory of just 2GB RAM. The rest of the specs for both variant shares the same hardware by having a 5.5" Full HD Display, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front facing camera, 3000mAh capacity battery, and dual SIM slot with LTE support. The top range ZE551ML also came with a choice of internal storage for 32GB or 64GB and all the model support expandable storage with a MicroSD card that support up to a maximum of 64GB.

The midrange Zenfone 2 ZE550ML was powered with the same Intel Atom Z3560 quad-core 1.8GHz processor found in the lower spec ZE551ML and also having the same 2GB RAM. Being the mid-ranger, other specs sees some downgrade from the top model ZE551ML as well, such as the display has been lowered to a 5.5" HD display unit instead of Full HD and the internal storage has also been reduced to 16GB but it is still expandable with MicroSD card up to 64GB. Other specs remain the same with the ZE551ML.

The most affordable Zenfone 2 ZE500CL is built with a pocket friendly size of 5" HD Display and the specs appeared to be somewhat close to the Zenfone 5 released about 1 year ago. The processing unit will be carried by a 1.6GHz Multicore Intel
Atom Z2560 processor, which was the exact processing unit that powering the Zenfone 5, it also came with a same combination of 8MP rear camera and 2MP front facing camera, memory wise it was handled by a 2GB RAM and a smaller 8GB internal storage which is also expandable with MicroSD card up to 64GB. Due to the smaller body of the phone, the battery capacity has been reduced to a 2500mAh unit which shouldn't bring much effect to its battery life due to the downsized display. Unlike the other Zenfone 2 variant, the ZE500CL is not LTE-enabled.
