Asus Zenfone 2, the latest version of the budget phone series from the Taiwanese PC maker, has finally arrived in India. Unveiled at CES 2015 in January, the new Asus flagship will be available exclusively on Flipkart in a fortnight with pre-orders starting from Thursday.
The new Zenfone 2 will be available in four variants. Two variants of the Zenfone 2 ZE 551 ML model come with 4G RAM and 2GB RAM respectively (both with 1080p display) and the ZE 550 ML model with 720p display and 2GB RAM.

The 64GB variant will compete with the OnePlus one which is in the same price range at Rs 21,998 now. But the former has an edge as it is the first phone to sport 4GB RAM.
On the hardware front, Zenfone 2 ZE 551 ML (4GB RAM) version runs on a 2.3 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor while both the 2GB versions run on 1.8GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 CPU.
