    ASUS confirms new Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates for ZenFone 2 and more in Q2 2016

    While it was announced last year in 2015, it looks like ASUS are confirming that a number of devices will be getting the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update by Q2 of 2016. New additions since previously include the ZenFone Zoom and Max but it also appears that certain ASUS ZenUI apps like ASUS Messenger, ASUS Mail and ASUS Calender will be replaced by their Google apps as the default apps. You can redownload these apps and install them with a factory reset after the update though.

    Rumours: ASUS ZenFone 3 coming in May 2016 with fingerprint sensor?

    Coming courtesy of suppliers, this rumour indicates that the upcoming ASUS ZenFone 3smartphones will also come with a fingerprint sensor developed by Elan Microelectronics and Goodix. While no specific Malaysia release dates were mentioned, it will probably be announced sometime in January or February 2015 (probably during one of the earlier expos) with a regional launch in April or May 2016 (like last year for the ZenFone 2). We expect this fingerprint sensor to be one-touch and located on the back along with the rear volume controls.

    ASUS ZenFone Selfie review - Everything you need in a Selfie Cameraphone

    The term cameraphone still means that the main feature a phone or smartphone has is its camera with camera centric functions all focused on providing the best camera experience possible. Featuring a 13MP PixelMaster camera and dual-tone LED flash on both the front and back along with laser autofocus for the rear camera, the ASUS ZenFone Selfie seems to fit the bill not only as a cameraphone but also one focused on the art of taking selfies. Does it deliver? We find out in our review of the ASUS ZenFone Selfie.

    ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser review - Affordable 13MP Cameraphone with excellent battery life

    Not too long ago, cameraphones were rather expensive devices that provided excellent camera performance and features while being a smartphone at the same time. They usually had larger than average or phablet-sized displays which when coupled with their more powerful cameras usually resulted in having rather poor battery life. However, times are changing and we now have smartphones like the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser ZE550KL which not only offers a 13MP PixelMaster camera and laser autofocus but also a 5.5-inch display for just RM799. Is it the affordable energy efficient cameraphone phablet for Malaysia's masses? We find out in our review of the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser ZE550KL below.

    ASUS ZenFone 2 with 4GB RAM and 16GB storage coming soon for $229 (RM970)?

    The ASUS ZenFone 2 offers a well balanced mix of style and performance. It is also one of the most affordable 4GB RAM smartphones around with the ZenFone 2 ZE551ML 4GB RAM / 32GB storage version going for RM1199. Quite recently a version with 4GB RAM and 16GB storage has appeared onAmazon and other online resellers for just $229 (RM970). While most of the tech specs and features remain the same with a 5.5-inch FHD display and 13MP PixelMaster rear camera, it looks like this version may have the slightly slower 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z3560 processor rather than the 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor but both are just as powerful. Still no news of any Malaysia release dates for this version of the ZenFone 2 but it could offer a very tempting below RM1K smartphone for the Malaysian masses.
