News: Asus ZenFone 5 coming to Singapore

2014 seems to be a year for budget priced but decent spec phones, first from Xiaomi…
And now, it’s Asus’ turn.

It’s dual-sim feature, design, the Zen UI, PixelMaster Camera and accessory case arouses my interest. But do take note, it doesn’t have LTE, just 3G and 2G.

Seen on Asus Singapore FaceBook page, the Asus #ZenFone 5 will be here soon and pre-order price will be at a special price of S$199 (without mobile contract).
For those are interested to purchase it, register your interest on the ASUS website (link here) from April 23-30 to receive the special price (choice of phone: black or white) or with Starhub telco contract and a free flipcover.

Colors available in Singapore will be white, black and red.
Though the champagne and purple casing looks better / eye-catching but since most will probably cover their phones with a protective case, so it wouldn’t matter as much.

GSMArena – ZenFone 5.


Though exceptionally late with this news but just read up on it on Asus Singapore’s FaceBook page.
Better late than never, I suppose.

If we look back at the hype Xiaomi created recently for the Redmi and Mi3 phones in the last 2-3 months, with the budget priced phones and features… It’s 30bucks more than the Redmi phone but I’m looking forward to see if it will get similar hype / responses from local consumers, for its affordability.

Oh and for those who are going for the hands-on session or doing the pre-ordering, could you kindly let me know if you liked / love / -_-” the phone? Thanks 🙂
