So no, I do not know what they would have available there.
But I've seen comments from others on this thread, when the phones were coming in, so maybe they can help with that?
A-VED143, 30 Aug 2014i have got ota update over airMust be real one, then.
As said earlier, to make a fake ZF5 it would likely cost them more than the original one costs to make it.
Most common scam involves selling A500CG as A501CG.
What you get is 1 GB RAM and if you're really unlucky Chinese Android.
Its my bad luck that Asus zenfone 5 is not available in Saudi Arabia because it is not launched in that country.
Now I am planning to buy it from Flipkart.
Do you have Idea About Zenfone 5 that when it becomes available in that site....
If you have Any Idea Plz tell me
A-VED143, 30 Aug 201435485306I see you got that information from imei.info.
My checker, however, comes up with unknown model on your IMEI.
If you are able to load official firmware into the phone without the message that it's not supported (as it checks for some tags in hardware) your phone is probably genuine.
BTW: 100% genuine phone, with IMEI typed to imei.info shows "LG P700 Optimus L7".
On my checking site (that requires 8 digits as those are for model only), it properly states "ASUS Zenfone 5 A501CG"
When I told imei.info that their entry is wrong, a message they don't have my phone in database appeared...
Here are indonesians up in arms over wrong information on this site:
In other words - imei.info sucks.
For those worried about how to differentiate between Chinese and international version, I've loaded some Chinese model A500CG with 8 GB eMMC and 1 GB RAM, 2 GHz Atom CPU, Chinese Android photos.
They are on mega-networks.asia/ZenFone/CN/
Ny03rZK - if phone has printing on the box in Chinese and lacks the line of configuration
MTxiwfG - If the IMEI starts with 35223906
195EX2a - if the Intel logo is on a sticker and not printed on the back plate (and if plastic wrap is written in Chinese)
Hope this makes it clearer.

Tomazz, 30 Aug 2014What are the first 8 digits of the IMEI?
You can get the IMEI if you dial *#06# on your phone.I have posted what the IMEI should start with, but that's only taking into account the international models and is not inclusive of other genuine models, hence I have decided to remove this information to avoid concern of users who have IMEI starting with different numbers, but actually have genuine phones.
