We still do not know if it will succeed, but there is no doubt that Asus is investing great efforts this year to try and return to a growth position in the smartphone market, despite all the great challenges involved - both with the crazy and unusual ROG Phone, and with theZenFone 5z, which is slated to land in stores in the coming days.
Creating a leading smart device that knows how to compete with the extremely competitive prices offered by Xiaomi, the fourth largest manufacturer in the field today, is not an easy task at all - but this is what the Taiwanese company that sells mainly from the world of hardware and computers with its first flagship of the year The current one unveiled at the MWC show in February. The Zenfone 5z features an elongated 6.2-inch IPS screen, chip Snapdragon 845 leads from Qualcomm, Dynamic memory of 6 gigabytes or 8 gigabytes, volume storage Fast 64GB or 256GB, dual main photo array and more - all at a price that is more similar to the definition of an intermediate product by most other players.
Now, after several months of silence, the intriguing Zenfone 5z is landing in Asus' official online stores in a number of European countries, including France and Italy, as well as in Japan, probably as a first step before international expansion to more markets and countries. The price stands at 500 euros for the base model with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage, and 600 euros even more competitive for the version with 8 GB of dynamic memory and 256 GB for built-in storage - when it seems that in France the deal Became even more impressive With a refund offer of 50 EUR on the purchase of each model.
We still do not know what the chances are of seeing this new Zenfone in Israel, given the almost non-existent presence of all the previous incarnations since the Zenfone 2 - but we will definitely keep our fingers crossed for it, and we really will not object to meeting another established product Snapdragon 845 that can be purchased at 2,500 New Sheqels or less along with the Mi Mix 2s and theOnePlus 6. what do you think?
