A budget smartphone with impressive hardwareCNET's Dan Graziano gives you a first look at the new Asus ZenFone 2
[MUSIC] In the US, you know Asus for their laptops and their tablets, but they also want you to know about their phones. I'm Dan Graziano, and I'm here with their newest phone, the ZenFone 2.This has a 5.5 inch full HD display, and comes with either 2 Gigabytes or 4 Gigabytes of RAM, which makes it the first smartphone that would come with 4 Gigabytes. It also has a quad core, 64 bit processor. And while other companies have Qualcomm or Samsung processors, this has an Intel processor just like your computer. On the front there's a five megapixel camera, and on the back there's a thirteen megapixel one. And as you can see here, there's two volume keys, similar to the LG G3 and G4. But on the top there's still the power button. The ZenFone 2 comes in two models. There's one with 16 gigabytes of storage and a slightly slower Intel Atom processor that'll be available for $200. The next model is 64 gigabytes, that's $300 and has a slightly faster processor. But it's also the one with 4 gigabytes of RAM which should help with multitasking. Both models also have a micro-SD card an a 3,000 milliamp battery, and two sim card slots although one is only limited to 2G speed. I'm Dan Graziel for cnet and that was a first look at the Zen Phone 2 from ASUS.
