Taiwanese electronics company Asus is trying to steal the spotlight from Meizu’s new smartphone offering today as it unveiled the Pegasus X002, packing beefy specs for a sub-Php6k price tag.
This Xiaomi Redmi 1S killer, which isn’t branded as a ZenFone, a FonePad nor a PadFone, is equipped with a quad-core MediaTek processor, 2GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel camera which touts an ultra-picture quality mode — it can stitch a number of pictures together to create an ultra-high resolution 30MP photo.
Asus Pegasus X002 specs:
5-inch IPS display, 1280 x 720, 294ppi
1.5GHz quad-core Mediatek MT6732
16GB internal storage
expandable via microSD
8-megapixel rear camera with LED Flash and Ultra Picture Quality mode
5-megapixel front camera
4G TD-LTE/TD- CDMA, 3G
Android 4.4 KitKat with ZenUI
The Asus Pegasus X002 will retail in China for CNY799 or roughly Php5,800 when converted to the local currency.
