ASUS Announces the Availability of ZenFone 2 in the Philippines

ASUS CEO Jerry Shen announced on May 16 the availability of ZenFone 2 locally at the Experience 2Morrow press event in Manila.  The highly-anticipated ZenFone 2 builds on the enthusiastic reception and success of the first-generation ZenFone in the Philippines and all of Southeast Asia, it features a stunning new Zen-inspired design, uncompromising performance, and a premium user experience to bring a new level of empowering luxury to consumers.

ZenFone 2 is the newewst flagship smartphone in the hugely-successful ZenFone family, featuring an all-new design, 13MP PixelMaster camera, and uncompromising performance delivered by a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580 processor with up to 4GB RAM! An Intel LTE-Advanced modem provides ultra-fast and reliable 4G/LTE connectivity. Building on the success of ZenFone and leveraging a quarter-century of engineering accomplishments, the highly-anticipated ZenFone 2 provides a wealth of exciting new features and a refined ASUS ZenUI experience to deliver a new level of empowering luxury for everyone.

ZenFone 2 has a gorgeous, all-new design that employs iconic Zen design elements, such as a sleek, brushed-metal finish and concentric-circle detailing, and introduces new refinements, including a graceful curved case that tapers to an incredibly-thin 3.9mm at the edges. The exclusive Ergonomic Arc design provides a comfortable, secure grip, and features an intuitively-placed volume-control key on the rear of the phone within easy reach of the user's index finger. The 5.5-inch Full HD IPS+ screen has a large 72% screen-to-body ratio that provides a maximized viewing experience, while reducing ZenFone 2’s overall size.

ZenFone 2’s 13MP PixelMaster camera with its f/2.0 wide-aperture lens lets users quickly and easily capture beautiful, high-resolution photos with zero shutter-lag.
