And there is very slight hope that they will release the Snapdragon and Intel chipset integrated device here, in India.

if asus is going to sell asus zenfone 2 5.5inch for $300 then i definitely say that indians will go for samsung s4 is available at price tag of 18k.
I cannot believe there are so many people don't understand the role of the reseller here. The price is clearly not correct. Please stop this bs, until asus update you with the price.
Faiyez, 20 Feb 2015Hard to believe people here continue to engage in self-deception after all is said and done. T... moreNo one has deluded themselves. YOU and Gsmarena and other sites are reporting bad information. if you notice no site gives a source at Asus all they do is give a link to a phone RESELLER. You and I can be a reseller and charge any price we want for "pre orders". the buy them for the cheap price and ship them out to the fools who paid too much money for them. Asus has CONFIRMED at CES AND on their Twitter that the 5.5" 2gb 1080p 16gb variant will be $199 USD. Get a clue before you talk nonsense. The world is changing, Big Screen TV's used to cost thousands, now they cost penny's on the dollar. Same thing is happening with cell phones.

They get fools to "pre order" the phone before it goes on sale and charge a lot more for it. Then when it comes out, they buy them for cheap.. and ship them out to fools who paid a lot more then they are worth.

Asus can change pricing anytime they want, day or night, seven days a week. They can double the price, triple the price, cut the price in half, whatever.

Those offers in aliexpress are for the 32gb vesion so 16gd vesion should be around 230$ wich is much more reasonable!

The only thing they can change is components. Flash storage. Hynix or Samsung etc and many other components except for Intel part. That's why other soc"s variant?

Sta-ko, 20 Feb 2015I was talking about aliexpress offer... i agree that should be around 230-240$ not much. Aliexpress is taking advantage because the product is yet not released but even if they got first batch from Asus directly and sell it for higher price they can do that until Asus regulates pricing. Then everyone must follow if they buy from Asus directly. If not they can't buy from Asus anymore but from second hand batch. Trust shops like amazon, best buy etc. Shops that buys directly! The best price is somewhere from 20-80$ sellers profit

Hard to believe people here continue to engage in self-deception after all is said and done. The $300 price tag is pretty definitive. I have told you from the beginning, no self-respecting phone maker is going to price their 1080p IPS piece of hardware for less than $300. You deluded yourselves into thinking it would cost a mere $200 while at the same time insisting that the prices were not defined, and yet you commit the same mistake of deciding the price based on what? A random interview at CES? And now you blame ASUS for your blunder...
Ok, Now let us wait till Asus releases zenfone 2 in India. Right now no body is sure what would be the real price. No point of wasting time on this topic. Let them release this first. For me if it cost more 240$ (15,000/- INR) after all taxes then its a deal breaker.
The 2GB Zenfone 2 with a 1.8GHz quad-core Intel Atom processor is priced at $300, while the 4GB one with 2.3GHz processor costs $440. The first model was announced at $200, so that's a little disappointing. We have to wait other retailers to put up their pre-orders to find out if Asus changed its mind on the pricing.
