ASUS Unveils Zenfone C

ASUS has made a huge splash in CES 2015 when they unveiled their new flagship handset and its camera-centric counterpart. But they’ve not totally forgotten their budget-conscious patrons as they unveiled an affordable successor of the ZenFone 4, which is officially dubbed as the ASUS ZenFone C.

Specs-wise, the new ASUS ZenFone C didn’t receive any significant improvements over the ZenFone 4 apart from a slightly larger and better display panel and bigger power pack. This is understandable considering that the Taiwanese firm had to keep the price down which is currently pegged at MYR 349 or a little over 4,200 in our local currency.

There’s currently no word if the new ZenFone C will be available outside of Malaysia.

    That’s just the zenfone 4 upgraded to 4.5 inches. The one they released at computex 2014 A450CG?

    Pretty lame for asus to still use the old z2520 processor, they should be using the new 64 bit processors by now in all products.
