Asus announced its newest flagship smartphone, the Zenfone 2. The Zenfone 2 has a curved back with a brushed metal finish and it tapers towards the edges to form an outer edge of only 3.9mm.

The 5.5-inch IPS screen on the Zenfone 2 has a 1080p resolution, which works to a pixel density of 403ppi. A bezel of only 3.3mm makes for an immersive experience, while Gorilla Glass 3 layer makes sure it's kept as safe as possible.



Zenfone 2 has a 13MP f/2.0 camera with HDR and Manual mode, as well as a True Tone flash for flash photos with more accurate colors and skin tones. The 5MP front camera has a 85-degree field of view and can capture Selfie Panoramas with a 140-degree field of view.
The smartphone has a 3,000mAh battery and with fast charging technology it should recharge up to 60% of its capacity in 39 minutes.

The Asus Zenfone 2 also premiers the latest version of Asus proprietary ZenUI, which would allow users to customize the feel and look of the UI by changing themes, fonts, icons, etc.

Based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the new ZenUI will also offer per-app or per-file password-controlled privacy via something called SnapView. The new Instant Updates feature will keep the ZenUI apps up to date regardless of the firmware update cycle.

The Zenfone 2 will be available in Q2 2015 in Osmium Black, Sheer Gold, Glacier Gray, Glamor Red and Ceramic White. Special Transfusion and Illusion back covers will be available to radically change the style of the phone.

The Asus Zenfone 2 is also a seriously affordable smartphone, costing only $199 before taxes. However that price will only by applicable for the 2GB RAM/16GB version. Is it only us or it sounds too good to be true for a 5.5-inch 1080p off-contract phone






Asus also announced the ZenFone Zoom, a smartphone with a 3x optical zoom. Its not much bigger than a normal smartphone, and Asus calls it the "the world’s thinnest smartphone to feature a 13MP camera with a 3X optical zoom."
The Zenfone Zoom camera has laser autofocus and optical image stabilization, and the device seems to make use a of Android 5.0's new camera API with manual controls of ISO, white balance, exposure, and others. The Zoom is definitely the more interesting of the two devices, but it was locked behind a glass box this session.
Zenfone Zoom will be out sometime during Q2 2015 for $399.

Had it been provided with dual sim it would have made a further imprint in India.

The OS is now 64 bit capable. There will come a time where some of the software needs will work only on a 64 bit hardware.

People like me don't use mobile more than 2 year.


Plz try to understand why application need 64bit processor. 64 bit process doesn't means it will run process fast secure and bugfree
Few software features require the backing hardware for it to perform. There will be things in future which the software will be able to do only a processor which has a 64 bit architecture.

I am no way saying that a 64 bit processor wont lag or remain bug free.

Few softwares- and the benchmarking software is Google Earth Pro.
Tegra K1 64 bit runs it beautifully compared to its Snapdragon comparatives.
