The company was rumoured to be working on its budget ZenFone Go since July. The new ZenFone smartphone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop-based ZenUI. It supports dual Micro-SIM cards with dual standby support.

Unlike previous generation ZenFone smartphones that packed Intel chipsets, and the more recent series that included Qualcomm chipset powered smartphones, the ZenFone Go (ZC500TG) features a quad-core MediaTek (MT6580) processor clocked at 1.3GHz coupled with 2GB of RAM. According to the official listing, the handset will be available in 8GB and 16GB inbuilt storage variants and support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 64GB). It features a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display. The handset sports an 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera with f/2.0 aperture.

The ZenFone Go comes with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, GPS/ A-GPS, and Micro-USB connectivity options. Notably, the handset doesn’t support 4G connectivity. It is backed by a 2070mAh battery. The handset will be available in Black, White, and Red colours. It measures 144.5x71x9.98mm and weighs 135 grams. The ZenFone Go packs accelerometer, e-compass, proximity, and ambient light sensors.

The ZenFone Go will come with 100GB of Google Drive storage, which will be free for 2 years. Asus notes that the free storage will have to be redeemed in the Google Drive app by April 1, 2018.

Asus last week at its ZenFestival event expanded its product portfolio in India with the launch of the ZenFone Selfie, the ZenFone 2 Laser, the ZenFone 2 Deluxe, and ZenFone Max smartphones as well as ZenPad 7.0 and ZenPad 8.0.
