    around 9K for the 2GB version

    • Easy E says:

      GuEsstimated price for the 2gb ram: 200x45x1.1=Php9900 sa 10% (tax and patong) hanggang sa 200x45x1.23=11070 sa 23% (tax and patong – based on iphone pricing)

    • Easy E says:

      syempre magiging mas mura na ang 1st gen zenfones. Zenfone 2 will be released on march, so we expect april or earlier (because of very strong sales of the zenfone5) na makaabot sa pinas ito.

    • shabby says:

      9-11k is a good price considering the zenfone 6 is priced at 12k.

      this 2gb version of zenfone 2 is a much better version of the zenfone 6.

      if they price it aggressively at 9-9.5K, this will be a steal.

      Yup, sila ang una sa CES 2015 announcement.
      Lollipop + 4gb ram + 64bit processor + Zen UI = Smooth interface

    • Tony says:

      Expect ko kasi na samsung ang mauuna sa 4GB RAM since 2nd quarter last year pa nila inanounce pero mas nauna pa ang Asus.

  13. Blue says:

    Gorilla glass pa din ba? I think I’m happy with the 2gb base model bec of its battery, sana di masyado malaki gap nila ng 4gb model. And I was about to finally buy the Zenfone first gen this weekend!
