Asus introduced today a new member of the ZenFone Go family with a traditionally unwieldy model name. The ZenFone Go (ZB450KL) is a more powerful version of the ZenFone Go (ZB452KG) which launched in May.
It's still a member of the company company's affordable lineup so the upgrade still brings the ZB450KL to a Snapdragon 410 chipset with a 1.2GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, Adreno 306 GPU and 1GB of RAM.
The phone's display remains 4.5" in size with a modest 854x480 pixel resolution. Internal storage is 8GB, but it's expandable via the phone's micrOSD card slot.
The headline of the Asus ZenFone Go (ZB450KL) is its LTE cat.4 support that's good for a speed of up to 150Mbps up and 50Mbs down. At the back, there's an 8MP autofocus camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. The battery is 2,070mAh.
The phone now launches in Russia with one store selling it for $123 (RUB7990). Note that phone prices are usually higher in Russia than in Europe and Asia, so the phone might cost a bit less when its availability spreads. The cheapest ZenFone Go (ZC500TG) launched for $80 in India back in the end of December.
That $123 price tag may not be able to hold well against lower-tier X, M, and H ones with better components.
too weak to stand the fierce competion of the chinese companies...Asus really needs to work hard on a new 2016 basic model, this one just doesn´t cut the mustard......
