Rounding up the surprise announcemencts with the ASUS ZenFone Selfie launch was the announcement of the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser for just RM799. Looking to replace the 5-inch display ASUS ZenFone 2 smartphones, the ZenFone 2 Laser ZE550KL features a 13MP PixelMaster rear camera with laser autofocus and dual-LED real tone flash along with a 5MP front camera making it very high value cameraphone. The 5.5-inch display looks to have a 720p resolution but still has a protective layer of the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Tech specs and features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 4G LTE Dual SIM Dual Standby. It should be available in the coming weeks but our hands-on with the device shows a smartphone very much like the ASUS ZenFone 2 with the only major physical difference being the laser sensor on the right side of the rear camera. This value cameraphone is expected in the coming weeks along with the rest of the newly announced ASUS ZenFones
