Asus has introduced three new devices to its vast lineup of smartphones: the ZenFone 2 Deluxe, ZenFone 2 Laser, and ZenFone Max. As their names suggest, these devices are basically different iterations of the ZenFone 2. Of course, with a little twist here and there.
The ZenFone 2 Deluxe is the highest-end offering of the bunch. Just like the original ZenFone 2, it can be equipped with an Intel Atom Z3580 or Z3560. Other specifications include a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, up to 128GB of internal storage, a microSD card that supports cards up to 128GB, and LTE connectivity.
Other than a different back cover, the ZenFone 2 Deluxe is basically a ZenFone 2. It still has a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter, along with a 3,000mAh battery.
Unlike the ZenFone 2 Deluxe, the other two devices are mid-level offerings. Both the ZenFone 2 Laser and ZenFone Max are equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor paired with 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 720p display (5.5-inch for the Max), up to 16GB of expandable internal storage, a 13MP rear snapper with laser autofocus, a 5MP front-facing camera, and LTE connectivity.
What differentiates the ZenFone 2 Laser from the ZenFone Max lies in the battery capacity. The Laser has either a 2,070mAh or 2,400mAh battery, while the Max has a whopping 5,000mAh cell. Power-hungry users will especially benefit from the huge battery capacity of the Max.
The local availability of all three smartphones have not been revealed yet, and the same goes for the retail prices of these products.
