It is now confirmed. After spotting the imminent price increase from DirectD, ASUS Malaysia has already reflected the latest price revision on their online store. The high-spec Zenfone 2 with 4GB of RAM costs RM100 more than before but nothing has changed on its lower to mid-range models.
Current ASUS Zenfone 2 Pricing
ZE500CL (5″ HD, 1.6GHz Z2560, 2GB RAM, 8GB storage) – RM599
ZE550ML (5.5″ HD, 1.8GHz Z3560, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage) – RM749
ZE551ML (5.5″ FHD, 1.8GHz Z3560, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage) – RM899
ZE551ML (5.5″ FHD, 2.3GHz Z3580, 4GB RAM, 32GB storage) –
ZE551ML (5.5″ FHD, 2.3GHz Z3580, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage) –
If you still want to own the 4GB version at the old price, DirectD is still offering them while stocks last.
For those looking for something new, ASUS will be launching its Zenfone Selfie on 30th August and that features a 13MP camera and dual-LED for both sides. Also incoming is their ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser, an entry-level device that comes with a 13MP camera with Laser AutoFocus.
