  • ASUS Live smartphone launched in Brazil, doesn't look like most ZenFones

    ASUS Live smartphone launched in Brazil, doesn't look like most ZenFones

    The ASUS Live smartphone was recently launched in Brazil for $210 (RM921) and it doesn't have the name or look of most other ASUS ZenFone smartphones. Apart from the non-ZenFone name, it is also missing the standard concentric circle design and looks to follow the same body and full metallic looking frame of the ZenFone Max despite being made out of plastic. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details but it could mark how upcoming ASUS smartphones may look like. Tech specs are as follows:

     

     

    • 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6580 processor
    • 2GB RAM
    • 16GB storage + microSD
    • 5-inch display (IPS, 720 x 1280 pixel resolution)
    • 8MP rear camera (LED flash) + 2MP front camera
    • supports 3G and dual SIM
    • 144.5 x 71 x 9.98mm | 140g
    • 2070 mAh battery
    • Android 5.1 Lollipop
  • 5000 mAh battery ASUS ZenFone Max promo video a sign that it is coming to Malaysia soon?

    5000 mAh battery ASUS ZenFone Max promo video a sign that it is coming to Malaysia soon?

    The ASUS ZenFone Max was also announced with the the ZenFone 2 Laser but had several major differences. This includes a first generation ZenFone design with the buttons on the side and a metal frame. However, its biggest tech spec or feature is probably its massive 5000 mAh battery (the same as a large tablet) while packing in a 13MP rear camera with laser autofocus and dual tone LED flash. It also looks like it will have an artificial leather back as indicated in a recently released promo video (which you can see below).

    The power sipping Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor no doubt helps increase battery life exponentially so if you're looking for a premium yet affordable ASUS ZenFone, then this could be the one to wait for. No specific Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet but it could be a sign that the ZenFone Max is coming to Malaysia soon. This is in line with earlier reports that we would be seeing the ASUS ZenFone Max and ZenFone Zoom in December 2015. Some tips from friends in the industry say it could be coming as soon as next week, so stay tuned for more details.

    6-inch ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser ZE601KL coming to Malaysia soon?

    While it was announced earlier with the other ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser devices, the 6-inch display ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser ZE601KL has yet to make an official appearance in Malaysia. Well, it looks like the roll-out has begun with the ZE601KL now available in India for 17999 INR (RM1131). Notable tech specs and features asides from the 6-inch FHD display is that it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor and either 2GB RAM with 16GB storage or 3GB RAM with 32GB storage along with a 13MP rear camera with laser autofocus and a 5MP front camera.

    ASUS ZenFone Zoom released in Taiwan, 2 versions with artificial leather back and 3x optical zoom

    We've been waiting for the ASUS ZenFone Zoom for a while now and it looks like the rollout has begun with the official release of the ASUS ZenFone Zoom ZX551ML in Taiwan. So far, 2 versions have been released at 13990 TWD (RM1809) for the 64GB storage version with a 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor while the 128GB storage and 2.5GHz Intel Atom Z3590 processor version is going for 15990 TWD (RM2067). A new addition looks to be an artificial back as well which you can see on the ASUS Taiwan site.

    Our initial hands-on pics of the ZenFone Zoom had it with plastic back but the rounded metal frame and all the other features remain the same. These include the signature 13MP rear camera with 3X optical zoom, laser auto focus, optical image stabilization and dual LED flash. Other tech specs include a 5.5.5-inch FHD display, 4GB RAM, Android Lollipop, 4G LTE and a 3000 mAh battery. No specific Malaysia release dates yet but earlier reports have the ZenFone Zoom coming to Malaysia this month with the ZenFone Max.

    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.
