Asus ZenFone Go smartphone finally has a price tag in India, and it’s Rs. 7,999. The new ZenFone-series handset is now available via the company’s exclusive stores apart from other retail stores and Flipkart.
The Taiwanese company had last month listed the Asus ZenFone Go on its official website as well as on Flipkart.
The company was rumoured to be working on its budget ZenFone Go since July. The new ZenFone smartphone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop-based ZenUI. It supports dual Micro-SIM cards with dual standby support. Unlike previous generation ZenFone smartphones that packed Intel chipsets, and the more recent series that included Qualcomm chipset powered smartphones, the ZenFone Go (ZC500TG) features a quad-core MediaTek (MT6580) processor clocked at 1.3GHz coupled with 2GB of RAM.
Asus ZenFone Go will be available with 8GB inbuilt storage and supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 64GB). It features a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display. The handset sports an 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera with f/2.0 aperture. There is a 2-megapixel front-facing camera also on board.
The ZenFone Go comes with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, GPS/ A-GPS, and Micro-USB connectivity options. Notably, the handset doesn’t support 4G connectivity. It is backed by a 2070mAh battery. The handset will be available in Black, White, and Red colours. It measures 144.5x71x9.98mm and weighs 135 grams. The ZenFone Go packs accelerometer, e-compass, proximity, and ambient light sensors.
