There are some 6000mAh battery bank that are not bigger than an iphone5s, so you could fully charge a big 3000mAh battery atleast 2 times per day. But lets be honest, if you need to fully recharge your phone 2 times per day, you're doing something wrong. By the way its a 200$ phone, they have to cut corner somewhere so if the radio has to go to save cost ..... thats really not a big deal. Why would listen to the radio anyway when you can stack your whole music library on your phone .. and its not like you cant have acces to the radio online via wifi or LTE/4G.
No radio...? seems to me like we're heading backwards. Also, a non-removable battery? It's enough batteries die out quick, people buy an extra battery for that reason, and now you're taking away the option to swap batteries!? not a good idea.
ampatuts, 22 Jan 2015is the two variants have the same 1080/1920 403ppi resolutionsThere are 3 variants.

Fillaam, 21 Jan 2015No radio, no way. I'm so sad. Bye bye zenfoneI don care the radio system. All I care is processor speed and ram.
so excited and I will wait for it.. :)

The new generation Intel chipsets like the one here on the other hand are based on 22nm process and is a lot more efficient which means 3000mah is more than enough to keep the phone running for a long time.
diovanie, 20 Jan 2015please confirm:
1.8 GHz, 2GB ram, 16GB, 720p - $199
2.3 GHz, 4GB ram, 16GB, 1080p - not ye... moreMost users here dont know but there is a third variant of the phone which is identical to the 1st variant in hardware except that its got a 720p screen. This variant is expected to be even cheaper than $200.
Link to a hands on of that version.
Who would care about the model 550? ... sorry - not me. I expect a high-end smartphone but I seriously doubt that than cost value will be less than $299. To be honest - it won't be cheap for sure
there is radio apk in the system. Question is if install it does it work or will it problem to the phone?
so this is what we have so far!
1.8 GHz, 2GB ram, 16GB, 1080p - $199
2.3 GHz, 4GB ram, 16GB, 1080p - not yet announce
