What is Asus doing is simple, releasing too many phones/tablets and then after you bought them there is no support, no newer android, ...
AnonD-333556, 25 Aug 2015less powerful than the zenfone 5The chipset is miles away from the intel in the ZenFone 5..Asus should have opt for sd410 instead
The phone i thing will be a over priced device because it is coming with the mediateck quad and 2070 mAh battery, which should priced around 6500rs, but i thing they will do it 7K or 7.5K which is a little higher I think.
This one is also good but yesterday, I read that Asus made new phone Asus Zenfone Deluxe Special Edition with 256 gb internal memory and compatible with 128 gb memory card, intel octo core processor..why they don't produce it for whole world such phone? I would like to see that one
reliable sources, 05 Aug 2015Chipset: MT6580 GPU: Mali-450 MP2Only MALI400MP not MP2 i think :)
Will the Phone be the same performer as it with Intel, and do the price will drop as the processor is dropping the performance from Intel Quad chip and the Media-tech Quad chip?

A potential successor and replacement of A501CG. This phone is probably intended to fill the gap between Zenfone 2 ZE500CL and Zenfone C ZC451CG.
asus is really good at updating their apps and os i never saw a company this good at updates but unfortunately you wont see anyother companies like asus do this thats why i bought zenfone and im glad with it
how about the GPU? its quadcore but can it support heavy games(specs)? it has also 8gb internal memory unlike zenfone 5 its 16 gb. what is the difference between zenfone 5 and this phone aside from quadcore??? the price is almost the same i guess with zenfone 5
And I thought ASUS would be smart and considerate enough to the consumers and choose Apple as their business model (without being as pricey): releasing less models that each makes more sense to provide better-focused aftersales support (especially updates). Now they seem to be turning into the second Lenovo that follows Samsung's footsteps: releasing a number of different models in each segment (entry, midrange, high-end) that canibalize each other, then end up abandoning support for the models that didn't sell enough. The buyers of the abandoned models suffer, and so would the brand's image. I hope it isn't too late for ASUS, though. They've really affected the dynamics a lot with their competitive pricing since the Zenfone 5. I hope it doesn't stop at just 2.
