Asus Zenfone X015D! Is this the new Zenfone Go 2?

It seems the CN Asus page is a gold mine of information today lol!

Look another Zenfone, the X015D! which is said to be the next generation Zenfone Go 2.

Comes in a clean but executive metal body carrying a 5.5 inch Display (HD, me thinks.) No 18:9 here.

Powering the device will be a Mediatek MT6750 Octa-Core Processor with Mali T-860 Graphics coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB Internal Storage.

Will have Dual Camera setup - 13MP Standard Angle plus 8MP Wide Angle. For Front Camera, it will only carry a 5MP one.

Covers all the basic connectivity from WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. LTE is there for faster internet connection. Voice over LTE is said to be supported. This is a Dual Sim handset however with its hybrid sim tray you may use the other slot to make way for additional storage via MicroSD.

This one is also a powerhouse as it carries a 5000mAh Battery. With its modest specs, surely it can endure days without charging.

No word yet on its release or pricing. Stay tune for update regarding this handset.

Spotted! Asus Zenfone Max Plus M1! with Full Screen 18:9 Display

Look what we stumbled on! Asus Zenfone Max Plus M1! Oddly enough it has similar specs of that of Asus Pegasus 4S.

Asus Zenfone Max Plus M1 features a 5.7 inch with HD+ 720 x 1440 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio covered in 2.5D Curved and encased in 5.2 metal body. This "might" be the first 18:9 smartphone from Asus for international launch.

Looking inside, Asus makes use of Mediatek MT6750T Octa-Core Processor matched with Mali-T860 MP2 GPU. Storage is between 32GB/64GB and Memory at 4GB RAM. There is a dedicated microSD slot for storage expansion.

As for camera, It features Dual Rear Camera setup at 16MP standard angle plus a 8MP 120-degrees wide angle. This should cater to your photography needs. For your selfies and video chat, front camera is high resolution at 8MP.

I believe it has near complete connectivity features. This is a Dual Sim Dual Standby (NOT Hybrid) and features 4G for both sim cards so you could easily switch between two different networks for your internet on the go. WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS is still covered and pretty sure supports USB-OTG with reverse charging feature.

Has Fingerprint sensor for personalize security that is found at the back.

Since this is of Zenfone Max Series, Battery life expected to be long lasting as it packs a 4130mAh battery.

No Price as of yet but it is a possibility that this model would be for international release. Guess it is the battle for 18:9 Displays for smartphone market.
