Asus launches new variant of last year’s Zenfone 5

Not content with all the Zenfone 2 models, Asus has tweaked one of the Zenfones from the 2014 lineup. Asus-Zenfone-Go

There seems to be no stopping Asus. The Taiwanese manufacturer has launched a plethora of Zenfone 2 variants this year to fill each and every price range and target different consumers, and it doesn’t seem to be done flooding the market with more devices. Asus has launched the Zenfone Go in India today, and the device is more or less the same as the Zenfone 5 in terms of hardware.

The main changes here are the switch from an Intel CPU to the MediaTek MT6580 processor, which may or may not be able to offer the same level of performance, and Android 5.1.1 instead of Android 4.3 out of the box. The battery has gotten a downgrade from 2,110 mAh to 2,070 mAh, but the rest of the specs remain the same as before.

These specs include a 5-inch HD display, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, dual SIM slots, and 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear and front-facing cameras. There’s no LTE connectivity on-board, which might be a good thing considering the smaller battery on the device.

The Zenfone Go will be available in India from online retailer Flipkart in Pure Black, Ceramic White and Glamour Red colors, with a price tag of Rs. 7,999 (around $120).
