The Taiwanese handset maker revealed that the new Asus ZenFone 2 will be available in Q2 2015 (March) in several colour variants - Ceramic White, Glacier Gray, Glamour Red, Osmium Black, and Sheer Gold. It will be available at a starting price of $199 (Rs. 12,600 approximately).

ASUS said the phone has a 72-percent screen-to-body ratio, which means there’s more display on the body and fewer bezels. It also has a full 1080p IPS screen, PixelMaster technology that improves the shots snapped with its 13-megapixel camera and allows you to take better low-light photos that are up to 400 percent brighter than previous generations. ASUS Creative Studio also now includes mini-movie for quickly recording and sharing movies on social networks.

The phone is powered by a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580 processor that ASUS says is up to 3.1 times faster than some quad core competitors. GPU performance is about 8.1 times faster, ASUS said, noting that it also supports OpenGL 3.0.

It also features 4GB of RAM, which makes it the first smartphone available to consumers to sport that spec.

To wrap up on the full specs of the phone: it features a 64-bit super quad-core Intel Atom processor, 2GB or 4GB of RAM, a 5.5inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 5.0 Lollipop and 4G LTE Cat. 6 support.
