Asus has launched another variant of Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG. This new variant is different from the already available Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG as it comes with 1.2GHz Dual Core Intel Atom Z2520 processor, while the other older variant comes with 1.6GHZ Dual Core Intel Atom Z2560 processor. It’ll be interesting to see that whether people will like to go with this new variant of Zenfone 5 A501CG which comes at Rs 7999. Other features are similar to the older variant and you’ll get to know all the features of the new Asus Zenfone 5 variant in this post.
The new variant comes with internal memory of 8GB. I felt disappointed knowing that headset is not provided with this new variant of Zenfone 5. I think that Asus should have provided headset as then it would have attracted most of the people who have not bought Zenfone 5.
Now I’ll make you know all the other features of this new variant of Zenfone 5 so that you’ll get assured that it is almost similar to the variant which was available from long time.
Other Features of Zenfone 5’s New Variant
This Asus Zenfone 5 which comes with 1.2GHz Dual Core Intel Atom processor is provided with PowerVR GPU plus which comes with Hyper threading technology. It comes with the same 5 inch display screen having resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and works on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) operating system with Zen UI. You’ll be able to get the Android 4.4 update for this smartphone. The display screen is protected with Gorilla Glass. A good thing is that the new variant of Zenfone 5 even if priced lower is provided with 2GB RAM.
Camera features are also similar. There is a 8 megapixel rear facing camera which comes with LED flash. In the front there is a 2 megapixel camera. This variant is also a Dual SIM smartphone. 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are the available connectivity features. It comes with similar 2110 mAh battery and some people are expecting it to provide little more talktime than the first variant of Asus Zenfone 5 which is because of the little tweak done to the processor.
Other 8GB variant which comes with 1.6GHz Dual Core Intel Atom Z2560 processor comes at price Rs 9499, while the older 16GB variant is available now at Rs 9999 only.
You should also know that you can get 10% OFF on the new Zenfone 5 variant which is by using HDFC Bank Card. If any other offers will be provided on Zenfone 5, then I’ll try to make you know about them.
This new variant of Zenfone 5 may get good response just because of the lesser price which is Rs 7999. People in India are expecting Asus to soon launch Asus Pegasus, Asus Zenfone 2 and Asus Zenfone Zoom as they come with better features than Zenfone 5. I hope that Asus will soon make people in India happy by launching the much awaited smartphones.
