The Zenfone 6 by ASUS is finally within our midst. The company has released its new model is Malaysia that will only put interested purchasers back by RM 699 (USD$216). This is RM 200 cheaper than the original model but this is due to some minor hardware differences.
Available in Black, White, Red and Gold, the Zenfone 6 can be obtained via authorized retailers around the country with the model name A601CG. What’s different this time around is the processor. The new device is powered by an Intel Atom Z2560 1.6GHz dual-core processor with 2 GB worth of RAM. This is mated with 16 GB worth of storage as well as a 13 megapixel f/2.0 main back camera with PixelMaster technology. The 6 inch headset boasts a mid range 720p resolution display and is powered by a 3300 mAh battery. In addition, the dual-SIM Zenfone 6 runs on Android 4.3 with the company’s ZenUI running on top of it.
ASUS Malaysia explained that this new model of the Zenfone 6 is offering a much more affordable large form-factor without sacrificing specs. The company is planning to phase out the current more expensive variant, the A600CG Zenfone 6 from the market if demand falls.
