ASUS’ Zenfone Selfie and Zenfone 2 Laser now available on their online store


Coming off its ZenSensation roadshow held earlier this month, ASUS has finally put up two of its new devices for sale on its online store. We suppose it’ll ease the burden of those having to find yourself an ASUS authorised retailer, though the phone maker has already caused quite a stir releasing as many smartphones as they can.

For the selfie-centric Zenfone Selfie, you’ll be able to choose between pink, (sky) blue, or white; while the Zenfone 2 Laser, you’ll be able to get your hands only on a red or black option – soon gold, silver and white will be available too. One of the perks of purchasing online is you’ll be able to get it delivered to your doorstep for free in only 3 days.

Just to recap some of the specs, the former has dual 13-megapixel sensors and dual-LED flash – giving it ample justification for its name. It runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor that’s coupled together by 3GB of RAM and provides 32GB of internal memory (expandable).

All your images and videos will be viewed on a 5.5-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) screen, which has Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on board to protect you from scratches and smudges. You’ll be connected to your cellular network through its Dual-SIM (LTE) slot, that will be powered by a 3000 mAh battery, that’s easily swappable.

On to the latter more affordable option, the Zenfone 2 Laser sports a 5.5-inch HD 720p display and runs a 1.2GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 410 mated to 2GB of RAM, under its chasis. It’ll also have Gorilla Glass 4 to hinder any nicks on its screen but loses the dual 13-megapixel cameras, the Selfie has; instead it’ll have a 13-megapixel sensor on the rear, while the front will have a 5-megapixel shutter that’s equip with an aperture of f/2.0.

Powering all this is a 3,000 mAh battery and since this is the more affordable option, it’ll only have a 3G enabled dual-SIM slot. Both devices run Android 5.0 out of the box but the Zenfone Selfie costs more at RM 1,049 (w/ GST) and the Zenfone 2 Laser will run you back RM 799 (w/ GST).
