ASUS Zenfone 2 -- the Smarter Smartphone; Unlocked 16GB Dual SIM Smartphone for $199.99, 64GB for $299.99

A High-Powered Quad-Core 64-bit Intel Processor, Including 4G/LTE and Dual-SIM Capability, the Zenfone 2 Also Features Great Looks, With a 1920 x 1080 5.5 Inch Display Encased in Gorilla Glass 3, and an Astounding 13MP Camera

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 18, 2015) - In the cacophony of phone launches that seems to happen on a daily basis, it’s becoming increasingly harder to stand out in the crowd. A host of features, dazzling cameras, and spectacular screen sizes are not enough -- a smartphone these days needs a little extra push. It needs style. It needs panache. It needs personality.

The new ASUS Zenfone 2 is all of that, in the palm of your hands, and will soon be available at B&H Photo. Beginning with an ultra-slim 3.9mm edge, and progressing to a 5.5 inch Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen, the phone is ready for the competition. Powered by a 2.3GHz 64-bit Intel® Atom™ processor and using a 6430 PowerVR 533 Mhz GPU, the phone also includes 4GB of dual-channel RAM and 802.11 ac Wi-Fi. It runs on the Android Lollipop (Android 5.0-5.1) OS.

But the camera is the pièce de résistance that impresses the smartphone crowd. A 13MP PixelMaster rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture lens lets you capture stunning high-res pics with zero shutter lag. Add to that a Super HDR backlight mode that quadruples the dynamic range for 400% more brightness, and a Super Resolution mode that can capture images at up to 52MP, and you may say goodbye top your point-and-shoot forever. All of that sounds like a drain on the battery, but with ZenFone 2, you can recharge up to 60% of your battery in just 39 minutes.
