That image is from Asus Mobile Magazine Issue 02 for the Malaysian market. The phone feautres Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, 5.2" HD (1280x720), 32GB internal storage, up to 2TB micro SD card, 4120mAh battery, dimensions - 150.5. x 73.3 x 8.73. Front and rear camera: 16MP, F2.0, Single LED flash.
Luqqy, 24 Aug 2017so, would you buy it? and is there any $200 price range that offers better specsI'm buying two $200~ smartphone within next 2~3 month.
One for my mother, who asked for "known" brand product for ease of mind which i may bought her J5 (2017). It have 5.2" 720 amoled, octa 14nm chip, 3000 mAh, decent 13mp/5mp camera with flash on both side. It still not sold here yet hence the 2~3 month wait for her.
The other one is for myself which i'm planning to buy Xiaomi redmi note 4 (or mi5 if i had extra cash). It have FHD 5.5" lcd, octa 14nm, 4100 mAh, 24bit/192khz audio, and 13mp/5mp camera.
But with Redmi note 5 on its way, i may wait for another month and see whats what with Redmi note 5. One known thing is SD 630 in Redmi note 5 have Qualcomm Aqstic audio which i very much want to have hence the 2~3 month wait for me.
The specs is actually same as what we saw for the Zenfone 4 Max ZC520KL. Maybe they decided to change the branding in Malaysia.
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2017it will be using snapdragon 425?according to this, hxxps://amanz . my /2017146039/
yup. 720p, 5.2" (or 5.3"), sd 425, 3gb ram, 32gb memory, 4120 battery.
I was like "$210 with 625 or 630? I might buy it" and i saw the actual spec.
At that price, if you wanna branded stuff, you could get Samsung J5 2017 with amoled and 14nm chip.
