5-inch Asus Zenfone 2 ZE500CL gets detailed
As you might remember, we recently told you about the existence of the 5-inch Asus Zenfone 2 smartphone. Now, the full specifications of the phone have been revealed along with a likely release date for the Taiwanese market.
According to a report in Sogi Taiwan, the Intel-powered 5-inch version of Asus Zenfone 2 carries the model number ZE500CL and will feature a 720p HD IPS display. It will also come with 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 2500 mAh battery and 16GB of internal storage. The phone will run on Android 5.0 with Zen UI and pack microSD card slot, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front shooter and 4G LTE support.
As you can see, most of these specifications are same as the existing Zenfone 5, but Asus has upgraded the OS and battery in the ZE500CL.
Sogi notes that Zenfone 2 ZE500CL will most likely join the 5.5-inch Zenfone 2 ZE551ML, which the latter goes on sale in Taiwan on March 9. There is no word on price and we are still waiting for an official announcement, which we expect will be made at the Mobile World Congress in early-March.
