Asus introduced the Intel Atom-powered Zenfone 2 smartphone family back in January at CES 2015. After hitting the Taiwanese market in early March, these handsets reached Europe yesterday, and now the US market is next in line. While pricing for the US is still unknown, Asus US will hold a Zenfone 2 event at the end of April, so we will definitely find out more about it next month.
The three variants available in Europe right now are ZE551ML, ZE550ML, and ZE500CL. These are their starting prices and main specs (in the same order as above):
The Asus Zenfone 2 family is expected to retail starting at $199 USD in the US, but this figure has not been officially confirmed yet. The Asus event mentioned in the beginning takes place on April 28, in New York.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
