ASUS Zenfone 2 could have a smaller display variant

A report from a Chinese site suggests that ASUS will not only come out with the 5.5-inch Zenfone 2 as it was announced, but also a smaller version with a screen size of 5 inches.

According to the source, the smaller 5-inch Zenfone 2 might not carry the large 4GB RAM that the 5.5-inch boasts. Instead, it might be cut down as it’s also possible that the smaller device might come as a “mini” version — meaning other specs could be toned down as well.

This could be one way of making the Zenfone 2 more affordable so people can choose what suits their budget more, but it’s still unclear whether this is the same ZE550ML model that we’ve reported previously and will just differ in display size.

If this pushes through, would you get a toned down Zenfone 2 or the one with a massive 4GB RAM? For Zenfone 2’s list of specs, click here.

    The Zenfone 2 with 2GB RAM is sufficient for me. :)

    If Asus indeed comes out with a 5-inch version of their Zenfone 2, then they probably better price it (even a bit) higher than the Zenfone 5. Some people who bought the Zenfone 5 hopefully won’t feel “cheated”, if ever.

    since they have the same battery capacity, i would go to the 2GB (ZE550ML) variant since its quadcore processor has only 1.7Ghz. its like ZF6 with smaller screen and faster processor.

    a 2GB version will also be enough for me since i’m not much into heavy gaming. hopefully it will be available in the philippines before my birthday this may.

      2G’s is more than enough for heavy gaming anyway. My friends Moto G only has 1GB and it plays al games just as smoothly as my Note 3.

    Get the 4gb version if you are planning to upgrade after at least 2yrs. Medyo future proof ng konti pag yung high-specd na ang kukunin mo. SANA may 6inch din na 4gb version.

    I dont its processor ang gpu handling heavy games. Di ako satisfied sa Z5 at Z6 ko sa Asphalt 8, moder combat 5, etc lag na kapag highest setting, though a different proc Asus pa rin yan at hindi nagkakalayo. Im not suggesting this if youre into cpu ang gpu exhausting games.

      i’ve checked the specs and for sure malaking yung difference sa performance kesa sa first gen. both sa cpu at gpu.
      yung GPU nya comparable sa adreno 330 na gamit sa s800/s801. :)
