Just recently, Asus has unveiled a brand new device: the ZenFone Pegasus 3. The Taiwanese company’s Pegasus lineup has always been a budget-oriented one, and the same still holds true for the Pegasus 3: it even boasts a very generous 4,100mAh battery.
Aside from the sizeable battery capacity, other specifications of the ZenFone Pegasus 3 are quite respectable as well. These include a metal construction, a fingerprint sensor, and even support for Voice over LTE. Considering the fact that this is an affordable smartphone, these are quite compelling features.
Rounding out the specifications of the ZenFone Pegasus 3 are a 5.2-inch 720p display (protected by a 2.5D glass), a MediaTek MT6737 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with 2GB or 3GB of RAM, up to 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras, as well as ZenUI 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
The Asus ZenFone Pegasus 3 retails at 1,299 Chinese yuan (about RM810) and 1,499 yuan (approximately RM930) for the 16GB/2GB and 32GB/3GB models respectively. Unfortunately, Asus’ Pegasus series of smartphones isn’t exactly meant for the international market, so it remains to be seen if the Pegasus 3 will ever be released outside of China.
