Official Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe and Zenfone 2 Laser

In the middle of a fairly quiet week Asus introduced new Zenfones to bolster an already strong lineup. The Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe is a prettied up version of the Zenfone 2 from earlier this year, while the Zenfone 2 Laser is a version of the 5 "model but with a better camera performance.

Even with the same dimensions as the model from March, the Zenfone 2 Deluxe stands out with its curious "premium-crafted polygonal design." It features 500+ triangles joined together for a "crystal miracle."

The Zenfone 2 Deluxe is still a dual-SIM phone with a 5.5 "1080p screen (Gorilla Glass 3 on top) and is powered by the same Intel chipsets - 3560 and 3580. This time both feature 4GB of RAM (the older model had paired The 3560 with 3GB of RAM).

Another improvement is that the base storage is now 64GB and you can go up to 128GB. You can add another 128GB with a microSD card. It runs Android 5.0 lollipop as before.

The camera setup is the same - 13 mPa for photographing others, 5MP for yourself. Video capture resolution is not listed but we suspect it's still at 1080p. Inside is a 3,000m battery with BoostMaster fast charging - 60% in 39 minutes.

Like the ZE500CL, the Asus Zenfone 2 laser has a 5 "screen and 720p is more compact than its 5.5" siblings. The change is the camera - it's now 13 mPa (up from 8MP), which can be extended up to 52MP with Super Resolution mode.

And as the name suggests there's Laser autofocus. The main camera features 5 lenses and an f / 2.0 aperture, while the 5MP camera selfie (up from 2MP) has a wide-angle 85 ° lens with f / 2.0 aperture. The laser autofocus system promises focus locks and 0.3s and works even for macros. There's a Super HDR mode for shooting against bright light and a low-light mode for "4x light sensitivity and noise reduction."

Unlike the other two 5 "Zenfone 2 models, the Asus Zenfone 2 laser is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (the others use Intel Atoms). It has 2GB of RAM and 8GB or 16GB of storage (expandable, of course).

The 5 "screen has 720p resolution and it's a non-IPS panel, but at least it's protected by Gorilla Glass fourth Like its big bro it runs Android 5.0 lollipop and has LTE connectivity. The battery is 2,070mAh or 2,400mAh either, this could be a regional thing.
