Asus ZenFone 2 – First phone with 4GB of RAM [CES2015]


Asus ZenFone 2

With CES2015 in full swing, news is coming in thick and fast. So far, we have already told you lots about what is coming this year in the world of mobile tech, so here’s some more. The Asus ZenFone 2 has just been announced along with several others (like the ZenFone Zoom).

Asus ZenFone 2 – First mobile with 4GB RAM:

One of the most impressive features of the Asus ZenFone 2 is that it comes with 4GB of RAM. This is the first mobile device to pack so much ram in to so little space, and it just goes to show how far technology has come! To back it up, the Asus ZenFone 2 will also run a 64 bit Quad-Core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 13MP camera on the back with 5MP on the front, a 5.5 inch 1080p HD Display and Android 5.0 Lollipop with an updated ZenUI.

The buttons on the rear are volume control, following in the footsteps of LG, so no dual camera here. However the Asus ZenFone 2 has a dual tone flash, Image sabilisation and better HDR technology, so pictures will be great!

How long do you have to wait? Not long, with shipping due in March and starting prices of $199 (£131/€167). Asus made a point of saying “Starting at” meaning that this could be the base spec on contract. But $200 for a phone with all that tech is a great deal! It should certainly be future proof.

We’ll bring you more news as and when it comes out.
