ASUS’s Zenfone 2 has garnered plenty of attention due to its low price and impressive list of specs. Now, ASUS has quietly begun selling a new model of the device that bridges the gap between the standard model and the upgraded model with extra RAM and storage. This new model is priced at $229 and it comes with 16GB of storage, like the standard model, but it bosts the RAM up to 4GB, just like the upgraded model. The Intel Atom processor is the same one that’s found in the standard model, the slightly slower Z3560 model.
Previously, the Zenfone 2 has been sold in two configurations. The standard model costs $199 and comes with 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. The upgraded model comes in at $299 and packs in 64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM and a slightly more powerful processor. This new configuration should please many who want the extra RAM without the extra $100. Even though it comes with less storage, some might disregard that in light of the fact that storage is expandable via microSD.
You can now pick up the new model from several different online retailers, including Amazon.
